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?

I need networking cables, which cables are best for use.


CAT6 cables & jacks are better than CAT5E.
CAT5E cables & jacks are better than CAT5.
CAT5 cables & jacks are better than CAT3.
CAT3 cables have problems going faster than 10Mbit/second.
CAT5 cables support 100Mbit/second, and seem to work with 1000Mbit/second ("gigabit") devices.

Hello

Your cat5 will make up 4 pair. org/org/wht being one pair and so on.

So as long as you keep them in pairs you will be ok.

Meaning. Pair one from cat5 org and org/wht to wall plate wht and brn.This would be one complete pair.So the wall plate colors are different from cat5 but as long as you stay in pairs and go from left to right on your conections you should be ok.

Ip address Hawking wireless G Router


plug in a pc using cat5 to one of the ports on back (not the wan port). If the router is running dhcp which is probably is, it should assign an IP to your pc. Now open your network adapter and view the status, advanced view should show the ip, subnet, gateway and dns info. The gateway is usually your router/firewall. Go to that IP using a web browser to manage. If your not getting IP's from the router, try a factory reset, if that doesn't work the unit may be faulty.

I have tried this, and my suggestion is to go back and get the proper wall jack. How much are headaches worth to you? If they are worth more than the wall plate, just **** it up and get the correct one.

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[]

Hawking switch


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.
