    I've just added a network in my house and took me a long while to get the Ethernet connectors together. I made a long cable to connect the two rooms in the house and had to go to bestbuy to get the Ethernet CAT5e plugs. My Wireless Router works fine with the cable. My problem is I get a error when I connetect my ThinkPad T20 to the HP Pavilion desktop to the other room. The error says in the ballon " System conflict error with IP Address" The normal Ethernet cables I've used before with the HP and ThinkPad worked together fine before. But I now added this built into the house network cable and I get this error. Both computers run Windows XP. ThinkPad T20: Windows XP Professional. HP: Windows XP Media Center Edition.

It is possible to use cisco switches in networking with out a router...from modem to switch to PC

Yes, in order to do this you would simply have to create a Layer 3 switch, if you are unfamiliar how to do this, click here

Note* if you are not Cisco certified, not experienced in configuring switches and routers from within the operating system, or do not have the necessary equipment or software, it is not recommended you attempt this, as it may cause permanent damage to your switch if the improper commands are entered and configured on the switch.

If you are unsure or do not feel comfortable creating a Layer 3 switch, have someone you know who is Cisco certified or a computer repair shop configure this for you.

I have purchased a D-Link DES 1026G unmanaged switch but have no idea how to go about setting it up. We have 8 computers running windows xp a Iburst broadband internet connection and two printers ( 1x HP...

well depending on any other items in you network. it appears that you would conect one of the 2 gig(on right side) ports to your router(iburst).and all other systems directly to this switch 24 ports. considering this is unmanaged there is no config. it works flat out across the network segment created by your Iburst router.

hope this helps

All the lights on the panel are falshing at high blips and I was wondering if that would be a tech problem because there is some networking problems

One-by-one, disconnect one Ethernet cable, and see if the pattern changes. If so, then one computer may be creating "excessive" network traffic (file-sharing? compromised-and-sending-spam-messages?). Take that "bad" computer off the network, and do some forensics & virus-scanning.

How to use the small switches at the back of CNet CNHS-1600 Power switch

If you are running the Cnet CNHS-1600 power switch in default mode ( No Vlans created) then you do not need to configure anything. Connect any Cat5 or CAT6 LAN cable from any free port to the new small switch. The Cnet CNHS-1600 power switch is Auto MDI/Auto MDI-X enabled so no need to worry about the cross cable. Simply plugging in a cable between Cnet CNHS-1600 power switch and the new switch will extend your LAN.

Hello! i bought the DES-1008D ethernet switch last week. i am not a tech-savvy but i know more things about computers than most users. can you help me in setting-up LAN on my two PCs which are both running...

if you want to create a network for only 2 system, there are no necessary to buy or use ethernet switch, simple you can use a cross cable crimped with RJ-45 connector both sided and plug into your 2 computers, give a IP (which is in same class) and you can share your files and folders with printer too.

I have created a network using thomson TG585 V7, i set the password and username for my internet and i used PPPOA for security and everything worked out. but there is a problem showing in this picture,...

From what I can see in the picture, you have two wireless networks,which actually you really dont need to worry about.
What happened here is that there are 2 networks created, which optionally you can connect to.
The OMRANWireless2 is the second option there which, if you know the password, either WEP or WPA, you'll be able to connect to it.
and since you are presently connected to the first one, and it is working fine, then there's no problem.
You can just click on refresh to see if it still comes out or if the connection has been switched off (From the server side,maybe).
But if you are the one that created OMRANNetwork2 by mistake, and you want to remove it, then you can click on the Network and Sharing Centre, On the network connections page, right-click on the wireless adapter icon then go to properties, then click on the wireless networks tab (In the middle), there you will see the wireless networks, and you can just click on anyone you don't want, and click on remove.
Hope this helps you out.

No. You will create a bridge loop. The only way to do this is if you have a smart switch capable of aggregating multiple ports into a virtual trunk.

Does your ISP give you several IPs by default? Does your hub have a built-in DHCP service? If the answer to both of these is no then you won't be able to connect more than one computer at the same time. What you need to do is replace the hub with a combination Firewall/router/switch. In addition to providing the physical Ethernet connections and protection from the Internet this device will have NAT and DHCP services that will create a small home network for you. Let us know the answers to the first two questions so we know how to proceed. Let us know the answers to the first two questions so we know how to proceede.
