Re: connecting to console

The proper way to console to a switch (at least as far as Cisco Catalyst Switches are concerned) is a rollover cable and a DB9 adapter... I then use HyperTerminal to connect..

What type of switch are you connecting to, and what kind of hardware are you using?

I always use Cisco for networking (Cisco is the king of switches and routers).. here is their step by step for connecting to one of their swtiches:

I cannot connect using serial console port (no signal / data out of serial console port). I don't have IP address of the DS4100B. I don't have its password... How can I reset it to factory default?

I am assuming you will still need console connection to do a password recovery.. however, here is the link to one password recovery doc that may help.

Access denied

yes, you should be able to connect to the console port using a roll-over cable RJ45-DB9, connect using hyper terminal or similar using the com port settings 9600,8,N,1
You can then configure the switch from the CLI...

Have you set the 'Login' command on the VTY lines in the switch setup and an IP address on the management VLAN to connect to.
You also HAVE to have a password enabled on the vty lines in order to connect via telnet.

hope this helps.

Not connect from console port

Verify that the correct settings and cable/connectors (rollover cable, correct COM port specified) are being used when establishing the console connection.

From the manual-

3.9.2 Connecting to an IBM or Compatible Device

To connect an IBM PC or compatible device, running the VT terminal emulation, to an
Enterasys Networks module Console port (Figure 3-20), proceed as follows:
1. Connect the RJ45 connector at one end of the cable (not supplied) to the Console port on the
Enterasys Networks module.
Connecting to Console Port for Local Management
Hardware Installation 3-31
2. Plug the RJ45 connector at the other end of the cable into the RJ45-to-DB9 adapter (supplied
with the device).
3. Connect the RJ45-to-DB9 adapter to the communications port on the PC.
4. Turn on the PC and configure your VT emulation package with the following parameters:

Parameter Setting
Mode: 7 Bit Control
Transmit: Transmit=9600
Bits Parity: 8 Bits, No Parity
Stop Bit: 1 Stop Bit

If im connecting everything in my apartment thru a wireless connection, I have been using a netgear wireless adapter on my PC and a Netgear Universal wi-fi internet adapter (model=WNCE2001) for my game...

If I understood you right, you have a wireless router that connects to you're PC and game console wirelessly, now you brought a 5 port switch to use with non-wireless enabled devices. please correct me if I'm wrong.

However, you will not get any extra speed from a 5X port switch, its either 10 Mbps for ethernet, 100 Mbps for fast-ethernet, and its automatically negotiated between the device and the switch therefore you see the "10/100" in every switch/network card specifications, it means it supports auto-negotiation. same goes for 10/100/1000

As per the network cable categories, there's no big difference really between CAT5, CAT5e, CAT6 because they all support the fastethernet (100 Mbps speed), the maximum length should not exceed 100 meters (theoretically), I'd say don't exceed 80 meters from my personal experience. The noticeable difference between the 3 categories (CAT5/5e/6) is the cable thickness, hence, quality.

I hope this answers your questions. feel free if you have any further queries.

Hello, Got a D-Link 1005D 5x100 Im having 2 computeres atm, but i cna only get one to work. When i plug the internet cables from the computers to the D-link router, only one can work, please...

Your D-Link is a "switch", not a "router".
So, every computer that you connect will require a _UNIQUE_ IP-address.

However, your account with your Internet Service Provider is only granting you *ONE* IP-address.
Upgrade your account to pay a few dollars more per month, to get additional IP-address(es).

Buy a D-Link Router, for under $50, and connect both computers to the 'LAN' ports,
and connect the 'WAN' port to your cable-modem (or DSL-modem).

Can i connect a hub to switch which is already have many other connection and also can i connect two or more than 2 systems with that hub

Yes, you can connect a hub to a switch with as many devices as the hub has ports for. You will have a bottleneck at the port the hub links to the switch but if the demands are low then you probably won't notice any significant degradation of speed. Move your printers on to the hub ports to free up switch ports for PCs, servers and router connection.

Procurve 2626 installation

You'll need to obtain a comms lead - connects into the console port of the switch then into an RS232 port on your laptop. Then, you will be able to connect using hyper terminal and you can give the switch an IP address, username, etc. Even a hard-reset won't allow you to configure an IP address as by default it needs to be configured through the lead. Will they not talk without being configured? If you just hard reset them, they should just behave as unmanaged switches.

I cann't connect to my switch

The primary connection method for those switches would be serial connection. In the box there should have been a DB9 serial to RJ45 cable. Hyperterminal default settings would allow you to connect.
