Question about E-Machines T3065 PC Desktop

1 Answer

The network connection is causing short

The network (RJ45) connection on the t3065 is causing my network switch to start blinking all lights and locks out any traffic. I have installed a seperate nic and used a different cat 5 patch cable and plugged into a different port on the switch with no different results. The switch starts flashing all lights as soon as I plug the T3065 into it, and stops as soon as I take the connection back out.

It's normal for a switch to flash some when a new device is plugged in. Of course, things should normally settle down within a few seconds.

First question. Are you hooking up both ethernet connections? If so, don't do this as that will cause problems unless you are using managed switches and configure the links properly on both ends. The behavior you describe would be consistent with creating a loop in the network like this.

Assuming the above is not the case and you still have a problem, you'll need to snoop into the network a bit to find the cause of what's going on. Since the network is being locked out by this it's almost certainly some bad broadcast traffic which is hitting all ports. The good news is that if that is the case it's pretty easy to capture.

Go to www.wireshark.org and download wireshark. It's free and pretty easy to use. Load it on any computer attached to the switch and experiment around a bit with starting captures and sorting through the packets to get an idea of what normal traffic on your network looks like.

After this, plug the offending computer in and see what happens. The problem packets will probably be very obvious although what they mean or how to fix things might not be so obvious. If this is the case, just post what you find and we'll take it from there.

Good luck and let me know if you run into any problems.

Helloi am having problem with dell t5400 presionwhen i start my pc and show my desktop few minutesautomatically turn off and orange light blinking do you tell me what the problem with My t5400 precisi


The only blinking orange light is located on the Network RJ45 connection

If you're talking about the Power light on the Front panel:

If the Power light is blinking green the computer is in a sleep state: The computer is in standby mode. Press a key on the keyboard, move the mouse, or press the power button to resume normal operation.

If the Power light is blinking amber indicates that an internal power problem might exist; The computer is receiving electrical
power, but an internal power problem may exist.
Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
Ensure that all components and cables are properly installed and securely connected to the system board.

Wired network problem


First of all are you sure your Internet card is working? there should be 2 lights at the back of your CPU in the Internet port when you connect the RJ45 or Internet cable they suppose to blink to show they receive and sending data. Are you sure you the RJ45 cables are at their right places? you can always identify them by their colors.If you think every is ok with your connection and your modem is sending Internet signal you can always buy an Internet adapter (USB) to resolve your problem.

Rj45 connectors seem loose in ports. if you wiggle the cable you loose connection. we made our own jumpers with cat 5 and standard 8pin rj45 ends


Does each end "click" when you push it into a socket? It should.

Most 8-pin RJ45 ends have a "tab" -- squeeze it to release the "lock" which holds the end into the socket. Check that the "bump" on the tab is going deep-enough into the socket to "lock" the end into the socket.

My network switch LEDs all blinking even without LAN connected


Hi,

The LEDS blinking normally would indicate reset internally or when the unit has just been powered on. Continous LEDs lighting up or flashing with or without a connection is an indication of extensive hardware failure. This could have been brought about by a near lightning strike, a power surge or simply component failure. Unfortunately the repairs is not economically reasonable and therefore a replacement might be better off. Sorry.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
