Question about HP ProCurve 408 Networking Switch
I'm linking 2 pc's only...connected fine on a cheap hub 10mps, hp 408 won't connect, both pc's say cable unplugged.changed adapters to 100mps half duplex, still no connect. could it be cables not configured properly colorwise? I thought the switch works with either crossover or straight. Any ideas? thx
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..
As this ProCurve HP 408 is 10/100 auto sensing, you should be able to automate speed and duplex within your NICs conifiguration...
