Question about 3Com 3C16985B /REF3COM SSII 24-PORT SWITCH (3C16985BREF)
I'm very new to networking. i have two switches (3 com ) when i interconnect two switches . the whole network loosed connection . any one segment will work but both at a time is giving me problems .i tried to connect using crosscable,straight cable but problem is not resolved .
I have the same problem with the 3com switch its dropping the connection for about 4-5 minutes and turning up again automatically in between when iam switch up the switch which is near to the sever its getting up soon then Automatic .....
iam not getting the exact problem even i have changed the switch still no result......
Can any one help me by knowing the exact problem. Is it making the loop for that time or what?
Is there any permanent solution for this problem or not?
Thanks in Advance.

If the whole network looses connections when you connect the two switches together, there may be a loop in the network...that is, there could be another path for data to pass between the switches. Typically this is caused if there are two cables connecting the switches, but it can also happen if there is another switch or other network device connected to both switches.
