Question about HP ProCurve 24x10/100 Mbps Networking Hub
We just switched from a Lucent DSL-HS-2.3MBS to a Westell 6100 modem, using the same cable to connect to our HP ProCurve 24x10/100 Mbps but now our network is SLOW but the we're clocking over 7mbps on speed test so it's obviously the ProCurve. Cable from modem to hum is same and we have CAT5 running to each computer from there. Computers are mix of Mac OSX, Mac OS9 and Windows 2000. With our old modem we had to apply IPs manually, but the new one seems to dynamically generate them using DHCP and the IPv4 Addresses, Subnet and Router info seems correct. On OSX machines, I have made sure to manually configure to 100baseTX, half-duplex. I have no idea how to do that on the OS9 or Windows machines so I turned those off but our network is still slow. I have no idea what to do. The ProCurve 24 (not 24M) doesn't have a console port and I have no idea what (or how to find) its IP to use the Web interface or even to Factory Reset.
Any light for a network newbie would be super-appreciated!
Miserable in Chinatown.
I can assist with the full and half duplex question...but I'll need a specific HP model number for the Procurve in order to give you correct advice about it.
If the Procurve is not configurable, or has never been configured, then it is using autonegotiation to determine speed and duplex. Each of your computers should also be set to auto for speed and duplex.
The general rule of thumb is to make sure that speed and duplex for both ports on a link are set the same. For example, if the port at one end of a cable is set manually, then the port at the other end must also be set manually...to the same speed and duplex values. If one port is set to auto, then the port at the other end of the cable must also be set to auto.
