My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine


I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

I have Sony Bravia KDL-46HX800 3D TV. My Ethernet connection stopped working. I can't get IP, my Sony blueray player doesn't have such problem (it is connected to the same net. switch). TV say


use a straight thru to connect directly to the router. Cross overs are typically used when connecting PC's directly together or daisy chaning routers or switches. Try a different port on the switch? Also from a pc, go to the DOS prompt and try and ping your TV. If your TV IP settings are all correct, and your network equipment is working, your should get a response from pinging your TV. If you don't, I would suspect a problem with your TV Enet port.

I have a gs724t and need to add a gs748t, what cable do I use to link them together??


Most switches are smart enough to detect and reverse logic if the wrong cable is used. If you want to be correct you would use a crossover cable.

Computer to computer, router, or extender (crossover)
Computer to switch or hub (straight through)
Switch/Hub to Switch/Hub (crossover)

Make sure your not using a crossover through cable. Also make sure your not connecting the cable into the internet port, which is usually the first or last port.
  • A straight-thru cable has identical ends.
  • A crossover cable has different ends.
  • A straight-thru is used as a patch cord in Ethernet connections.
  • A crossover is used to connect two Ethernet devices without a hub or for connecting two hubs.
  • A crossover has one end with the Orange set of wires switched with the Green set.

How to use cross cable and straight cables in network


ok, i think what you mean is this.  Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router.  also called pc-to-pc.  Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together.  Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.

Crossover Cable


crossover cables are designed to connect two DCEs (data communication equipments like modems) or two DTEs(data terminal equipments like computers)
most routers nowadays have smart ports so you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable to connect a computer. but if your router doesn't have smart ports, it's advisable to use straight-through cables

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Pc's say a network cable is unplugged


First, NO, crossover cables are for connecting LIKE devices.. you need a Straight Thru cable for connecting 2 PCs to a switch.. So, if you are using Crossovers, then you are getting the correct results (cable unplugged). Replace with the proper cables, and it should see the network fine..

Also,
