Question about SMC Model EN104TP 4 PORT 10 BASE-T Ethernet Hub [ Netgear EN104TPNA ] (112467)

1 Answer

Ethernet Hub EN104 Hit and Miss.

A few days ago had to buy new DSL modem. Have tried w/o luck to link 2 computer 'network' with Ethernet cable from each, linked to two port RJ-45 connections on the Netgear Ethernet Hub EN104TP. The Motorola (style "MSTATEA") DSL modem is linked to EN104TP, port 4 (Rx), with Ethernet cable, as well. DSL modem is connected w/ 'purpose' cable, provided by manufacturer, directly to a filter at the phone jack The iMac (10.3.9) will work w/ direct link to modem, but not through EN104. The HP netbook, Windows 7, will work w/ direct link AND through EN104. What's up? Previously had loaner Belkin Router and Mac worked fine with that, as did HP.

Make sure your network card on the computer is enabled and properly installed. Also try replacing the cable with one that is known to be good. I hope this helps. Good luck.

If it's an SMC with a little luck you'll find the drivers for your specific model number, Otherwise, go to SMC Site and search for your model number. If it's not an SMC device, let me know what brand and model number it is.

SOURCE: I have 3 computers connected by D-Link router.

The thing is that this is not a router as I know. It has to be a switch. As I know.
You still need a router to connect to the internet and do the routing. First check that.
To configure the network, you have to connect 3 PCs to your switch. Connect the switch to a router. Use router's uplink or auto sense ports. Connect both the ports with a straight through cable. If you don't have such port in the new router (when you buy, check it first), use a standard ethernet port. But you have to use a cross-over cable. Then go to router's login page and log in. Set the dhcp. It will assign adresses to your switch and PCs also. Make sure you don't have static configurations in you machines which may confuse by duplication. To use dhcp, set you machines' IP settings to obtain IP and DNS automatically. Set the default gateway IP as the router's IP. Then open a command prompt and ping the router. Then ping the switch(first do that). Then ping other PCs. After verifying the connectivity, plug the cable(internet) and your router has to have such a port. Go to WAN settings and do any other configuration. Cable internet (if its adsl instead of TV cables), you will required to provide authentication information with other settings. For cable internet instead of ADSL, the configurations might be different and I don't have experties on that (cable TV used as a medium to access the internet). So hopefully this will do your task.
If this solution is able to solve ur problem, please rate it. Thanks and Good Luck. :)

I am trying to set up a switch between my PS3 and my PC. I have an external DSL modem. I purchased a 5 port switch(Rosewill RC405-x) but no luck. Can I use an ethernet splitter instead?


You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together.
Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch.
Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port.
You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports.
If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.

How do you hook up a Dynex Ethernet Hub


If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.

There are many USB to ethernet adapters available, for example - Belkin USB to Ethernet Adapter with 2m Patch Cable from Amazon. Your laptop may only be USB version 1.0 so it would be best to make sur the adapter supports USB 1.0 and 2.0.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

DES-1008D connectivity issues.


Is the modem a DSL or cable model?
Does the router have one ethernet port and a WAN port?
Normally the broadband modem is connected to the WAN port on the router and the ethernet port on the router is then connected to the hub/switch and the computers are then connected to the hub/switch.
The modem gets an unique IP address from your Internet Service Provider and then the router then issues Class "C" IP addresses to each computer that is connected to the switch/hub.

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
