Question about SMC TigerSwitch 6508TT

1 Answer

Adding a PC to the network

I have a SMC TigerSwitch 6508TT. There is one pc connected to it, one network printer, the DSL modem and a DI-524 wireless router. I'm trying to add another pc but when I plug in the ethernet cable, the port does become active. It continues to blink available. What else do I need to do to have the 6508T recognize the new pc?

Re: Adding a PC to the network

Make sure your network card on the computer is enabled and properly installed. Also try replacing the cable with one that is known to be good. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Is it possible to connect a standard DSL modem - without Wi-Fi (with 1 Ethernet port) and a DSL modem - Wi-Fi (with 4 Ethernet port) to broadcast Wi-Fi singles

Does the non wifi modem give out DHCP addresses?
Can the wifi modem be set up to receive it's IP address from DHCP?
If the answer to both these questions is Yes then that's what to do as a first step. Make sure the wifi modem DHCP service is disabled as it must NOT give out DHCP addresses.
Connect the ethernet port of the non wifi modem to one of the LAN ports of the wifi modem and NOT the DSL/WAN port. The wifi modem is not participating in any DSL connectivity at all so it's DSL light will remain off. The non wifi modem is doing the DSL duty so it's DSL light should be correctly illuminated.

Remove the power cord from the back of the switch.
Remove all cables from the front panel ports.
Connect port 1 to port 2 on the front panel using a standard patch cable.
Reconnect power to the switch.
Wait at least 40 seconds before disconnecting the patch cable between port 1 and port 2.
After the above is completed, the password will be "smcadmin" and the switch IP will revert to

Only one computer can acces the internet in my hub , I have a Linksys NH1005 hub , I'm using cable dsl , but only one computer can acces the internet , it does not matter wich port

If you want to use more than one computers you will need to replace that hub with router. Best is to get wireless router because in most routers you have places for wired connections and also wireless connection.

Reason why you can't use more than one computer is simple because most ISP are allowing only one computer to be connected from DSL modem.

I have 10 IP's comin in on 1 lan cable onto 1 vlan. the vlan moves on but i only want 2 of those ip's to pass through it, can i block the other 8 IP's from being passed on?

Yes, you can do this with an ACL - Access Control List for the incoming connection. Define the ACL to allow the two you want and then you're done. By default, anything not allowed is disallowed.

Adding offices to my remote server

The SonicWall TZ 190 is a good appliance for the Tampa location.

The SonicWall TZ 150 is a good appliance for the remaining locations.

For the remote locations, a decision has to be made as to how many sites you want to interconnect to. If you want the network to be such that each site connects to every other site, then you will need the SonicWall TZ 190 as it supports VPNs for up to 15 sites.

In the end, everything comes down to cost. For a Small-to-Midsize Business, this is considered operational cost.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

Pointing new Offices to server

It looks like what you need is a firewall appliance that also has VPN capability.

Do you have a firewall appliance at the Tampa, Fl. location? If so, what is the manufacturer? Does it have VPN capability?

For all the remote offices, you will need similar firewall appliances. I recommend SonicWall firewalls as their web interface for setup is a lot easier than Cisco.

The firewalls for the remote offices must also need VPN capability.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
