Question about Hawking (hfs5t-eu) Networking Switch

1 Answer

Hawking HFS5t cat5e comes from my router to a wall plate. If I plug my HP printer directly into the wall plate, my computers see it on the network no problem. If I instead plug the HFS5T 5-port switch into the wall plate, and the printer into the switch, the computers on my network no longer see it. If I try to ping it I get some kind of destination unreachable report on my pc. Ideas? My router is a DLINK running DHCP.

Try resetting the switch back to its default configuration. It sounds like you have a routing issue within the switch causing your printer not to be seen by your pcs.

Can you connect a pc to the switch just to see if you can ping your printer from there?

What wires go into the back of the Dynex 5 Port 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch?


A switch is a device for networking computers printers or other devices with an ethernet port. Most common scenario would be to hook a cat5 cable from your broadband router's lan port to Port 1 and then connect your other ethernet devices to the remaining ports. In order for the devices to cmmunicate you'll want to make sure that they are on the same ip subnet. Usually, 192.168.1.x.
Your router may be 192.168.1.1, your PC 192.168.1.100 Printer 192.168.1.101. Each device needs a unique IP address.
Hope that helps.

I'm having problems with my Linksys ezxs55w switcher. The plugs are not lined up with the correct lights. For example, I plug the uplink into the uplink plug, but it shows up as number 5. Same with other...


You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).

You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.

I have a cisco router linksys. I connect internet cable to it in ethernet port. Neither by wire not by wireless I can connect my laptop. The connection comes as only local


If you can plug the cable that you have ran into your router into your computer directly and it works, then you can plug the router back in. Then connect the computer to the router via cable and unplug the router for about 15 seconds and plug it back in. If you connect the computer by cable directly and it doesn't work, then try unplugging your router for about 15 seconds and then plugging it in. I have found many networking items that need to be reset whenever a network cable is plugged in when the device is powered on.

Hi there:)


TRY THIS:


call in your provider to change the ssid and the network key

[all computers will be disconnected]

and then try to reconnect them one by one to the new ssid or network name

this should resolve the issue

always make sure that the wireless properties are okay and the same as the router


also check the device manager: network adapters if they are properly installed and no errors on the icon for the adapters. for windows OS[]

How to hook up the Ethernet 5port Workgroup Hub Model No. ew5HUB


To start with please make sure it says router on it as the title says "Networking Hub". These are two different devices. If not return the Hub and purchase a Linksys Router then follow instructions below.

Assuming you have a router:

Before you begin unplug the power from the Cable or DSL Modem before you start as they will have to be powered on in a particular order I will discuss later.

Your cable or DSL modem will have a cable coming out of it that looks similar to a phone line except a little larger. The cable will say CAT5 or CAT6 or Ethernet on it.

On your Linksys Router there will be a ports/jack that you can plug the Cable into from your Cable/DSL Modem. You want to look for one labled "WAN" or "Internet". Plug it in then plug in the power to your Cable or DSL Modem. When the "Ready" light is on the modem, plug in the power cable to your router.

The next step is hooking it up to your computer. There will be anywhere from 1 to 8 more ports available on your Router that is number 1,2,3,4, etc. Plug another Ethernet Cable into any one of those ports. With the other end plug it into your PC or Laptop, there is only one port/jack on your computer that this plug will fit in. Power up your PC and voila, you should be on the Internet.

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks,
Adam

No connection


the printer needs an IP address from dhcp server or in other words, the router. the switch just acts as a kind of repeater on network segment.

The switch itself plays no role in an IP address conflict. PC's that plug in the switch should have unique or auto assigned addresses. Please try adjusting one of the PC's reporting the conflict.
