Question about Allied Telesyn AT 8024GB Networking Switch

2 Answers

Hi there, I wish to connect together two switches, modeled AT-8024M, to be recognized as one switch so that a gigabit uplink module housed on only one of these switches can be shared between two switches. In reference to the AT-8024M switch manual on pages 17 and 87, I understand that the back panel houses a port called the RPS connector and have concluded that this port is not suitable for what I wish to achieve. What suitable port/s on this switch would allow this setup and does one even exist? NB: A GBIC module purchase is an option, but not an ideal one due to budget constraints.

Just connect them by a LAN port on each of them. They will happily pass the traffic through.

SOURCE: Cisco SG300-52 SRW2048-K9-NA, can you

The 'combo' ports can be ethernet or GBIC, not both. While the ports do provide flexibility for interconnects, they do cause some confusion when this comes up. If you need more ports, some Cisco switches do support 'stacking', where they can be interconnected via their StackWise ports located on the back. These switches work together and act like a single switch. Configuration is generally easy, with one switch being marked as 'master', generally the switch that has the uplink to the rest of the network.

Hi, if you installed a Supervisor 6L-E 10GE (X2) in the new 4506-E and you want to use the two 10GE uplinks as Gigabit, you need to type in the following config lines:

hw-module module 1 port-group 1 select gigabitethernet
hw-module module 1 port-group 2 select gigabitethernet

When I plug a cable into port 8 it will shutdown the switch


Your router supports a total of 8 connections. However, on the back there are 9 physical ports. Port 8 has two physical connectors where one (we will call it port 8a) is used to connect to a PC and the other (we will call that port 8b) is used as an uplink port. The uplink port (8b) cannot be used if something is pluged into 8a. If you are trying to use all 9 physical ports that is likely ther problem. If you need more than 8 devices connected to your switch get another 8 port switch (any brand will do) and connect the two switches via the UPLINK port with a 7 foot CAT-5 cable. Do not use a CAT-5 patch cable less then 7 feet long to connect two network devices together such as computer to switch or switch to switch as that will probably cause another problem with timing.

Another possibility is that the device at the end of port 8 has a malfunctioning network adapter. Try connecting a laptop to port 8a using a 7' CAT-5 cable. You may also want to try pluging the problem cable into another port as a way to test if the problem is somewhere along the cable run.

I am connecting 4 nodes through 2 switch located at 400ft distance. the data transfer is not working. 2 nodes are connected to each switch, both nodes connected to individual switch communicates with each...


Just to clarify, you have 4 computers connected to two ethernet switches. Two computers are connecteh to each ethernet switch and a network cable connecting the two ethernet switches 400ft apart.

For all the computers to communicate with each other, they all need to be in the same workgroup "name".
The cable joining the two ethernet switches need to be connected to the RJ45 UPLINK port on both the ethernet switches, and the uplink port may have a switch (the switch allows it to function as a standard RJ45 port or a RJ45 uplink port).
If there is no RJ45 uplink ports on the ethernet switches then a cross over network cable is needed to connect the ethernet switches together.

Didn't recognize uplink


Not really, you just have a minor misconception. The network feed is not suppose to plug into the uplink. The uplink is for connecting 2 switches together so they act as if they were one switch.
