I have a gs724t and need to add a gs748t, what cable do I use to link them together??


Most switches are smart enough to detect and reverse logic if the wrong cable is used. If you want to be correct you would use a crossover cable.

Computer to computer, router, or extender (crossover)
Computer to switch or hub (straight through)
Switch/Hub to Switch/Hub (crossover)

Make sure your not using a crossover through cable. Also make sure your not connecting the cable into the internet port, which is usually the first or last port.
  • A straight-thru cable has identical ends.
  • A crossover cable has different ends.
  • A straight-thru is used as a patch cord in Ethernet connections.
  • A crossover is used to connect two Ethernet devices without a hub or for connecting two hubs.
  • A crossover has one end with the Orange set of wires switched with the Green set.

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.

Lan cable Setting for Switch & PC to PC LAN Connection.


If you are asking about connecting two computers together with a hub or switch, plug them into the switch/hub with standard patch cables (cat 5e or cat 6).

If you are asking about connecting two computers together directly using a LAN cable, then you will need a "Crossover" cable (cat 5e) wired specially (oranges transposed at one end for the common -B pattern) for direct LAN connection.

Hello koolboyvipin, you and your friend can connect your computers together using CAT 5 cable in cross-over mode[pin1A to pin3B, pin2A to pin6B, pin3A to pin1B, pin6A to pin2B].
To connect more computers, you need a hub, but I prefer a switch because switches are more intelligent in data receiving/transferring. But your CAT5 connection between your computers and the hub/switch must be straight cables[pin1A to pin1B, pin2A to pin2B etc.]
I believe this would satisfy your problem.
For further enquiries, kindly post your requests to our forum.

Best regards,
Tony

Cable modems


I have heard of people doing it.
However, you will need to pay the cable company for an additional line / service, as the MAC address of the modem has to be registered with them in order for it to work.

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

Please list the model of the network hub you are using.  Also is a "hub/switch" or a routher.  Also are you using a DSL or Cable internet connection?  Please provide a little more details.
