First, NO, crossover cables are for connecting LIKE devices.. you need a Straight Thru cable for connecting 2 PCs to a switch.. So, if you are using Crossovers, then you are getting the correct results (cable unplugged). Replace with the proper cables, and it should see the network fine..

Also,

As this ProCurve HP 408 is 10/100 auto sensing, you should be able to automate speed and duplex within your NICs conifiguration...

Happy Holdiays!

A network cable is unplugged


This message " A network connection is unplugged" comes when the connection unavailable may be due to faulty connection. Chek that your router is rightly plugged and the sockets are dust-free. If problem persists, contact support.

My lan ports only output 10mps


1. Click Start => Settings => Network Connections
2. Right click on your LAN connection and click properties
3. Under General Tab, click the configure button to configure your Ethernet adapter
4. In the dialog box that appears, click the Advance Tab
5. Under Property, scroll down to SPEED and Duplex and set the property to 100Full

However, you can set it to its default value: Autonegotiation. It you have switch or hub that runs on 10mbps, it should run at 10 and not 100mbps

''Network Cable Unplugged'' problem on Linksys but not on D-Link


Most likely the connection inside your new gateway is bad - you should return it under warranty & get a new one.

Reset speed from 10Mbps on 100Mbps (D-Link DE-1824i)


Tony,  I was looking at the specs and found these lines :- Choices of 12 and 24 10BASE-T ports per hub 
1 100BASE-TX port (for connection to 100BASE-TX hubs) Which is saying that the user/pc ports are fixed 10Mps and there is one 100Mbps uplink port to connect two hubs together.

Netgear JFS524 network cable unplugged error on all pc'c


Hi Ewan,

How is the modem/router connected to the switch?

Have you tried changing the patch cable that connects them together, or the port they are connected from?

When troubleshooting this type of issue, it is always best to check each layer of connectivity (1-Physical,2-Data Link, 3-Network Addressing, etc.) in order from bottom to top, due to each layer being dependent on the layers before it.

DNS is important but wont be available until you have a physical connection and a IP address.

If you can achieve a stable connection while the PC is connected directly to the modem/router, but not via the switch then work your way from one end of the link between the working component (in this case the modem/router) to the other (PC) - testing each part along the link.

If the switch is faulty after you have performed some testing, it is best to change it out and test with another switch (if avalible), before purchasing or sending the JFS524 away for repair (if still under warranty).

Let us know how you go with the testing.

How to use cross cable and straight cables in network


ok, i think what you mean is this.  Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router.  also called pc-to-pc.  Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together.  Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.

Connecting campus wide networking to hub


Hi,

Check the following:

Hardware First: Is Vista confirming LAN connection onn that PC, or is it showing disconnected cable?

Is the connection properties showing at least 100Mbps?
Are the RJ45 terminals okay?
Is the driver for the network card recognized by Vista and loaded?

If that is fine, then check the following in the network properties:

1. The IP address you are using
2. The gateway address: it must be the same as the gateway address in the other PCs accessing internet. Run and check
3. The Subnet mask. Use 255.255.255.0
4. HAve you Setup the Nework using the Setup Wizard, including Access INTERNET THROUGH A HUB THROUGH ANOTHER COMPUTER ON MY NETWORK?

Check those things and let us know. Ask for help from your network administrator about correct IP addresses on that LAN

Install D- Link adapter


It's not generally possible to connect two computers directly via a network adapter.  You need a hub or router in between the two computers (you would connect a cable from each computer to the hub or router, and that equipment facilitates the connection between the two computers).  Alternatively, you would need a "crossover cable" to connect the two computers directly without a hub or router.
