SMC ethernz problem

Hi,
I am confused when useing the smc as to where the ethernet cable goes in.  I had it configured before but now it seems not to work.  I have the ethernet cable from my belkin router but where do I put it?  Port 1 or port 16?  What is daisy chain and should it be switched to the cross or parallel lines? Any help much appreciated.

Typically you will connect your router to port 1 of the switch. Unless you have a port that is labeled WAN or Uplink. Then you would use that.

Daisy chain is when you have multiple switches connected to eachother. So it would be router to port 1 computers on ports 2-15, port 16 would connect to port 1 on another switch, and so on.

Cannot log into the SMC8024l2 switch via ethernet or console and after resetting to factory defaults still cannot ping the device at the default IP Address or the IP address it was set up on.


Looks to me like they never implemented the serial port. The used unit I just obtained has no signal on the serial console pins and no SMC documentation beyond plugging it in appears to exist. Likewise with TELNET access.

However you can reset the switch to factory defaults with the following procedure from a pop-up window off the login page. It worked for me.

----------

If you have forgotten the administration password you can return the Switch to its factory default state by doing the following:

1) Remove the power cord from the back of the Switch.
2) Remove all cables from the front-panel ports.
3) Connect port 1 to port 2, on the front panel, using a standard network cable.
4) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the Switch.
5) Wait at least 40 seconds before disconnecting port 1 from port 2.

After completing this procedure, the password will be 'smcadmin' and the network address will be returned to the default; 192.168.2.10/24.

Sir i have forget my admin password i want to recover it now tell me the procedure


Hi,
Default admin username: smcadmin Default admin password: smcadmin

This is the default username and password for your SMC 24-Port Ethernet Switch to log into the setup page. Also by default the ipaddress to log into the setup page is http://192.168.2.1

Thanks in Advance!

With Regards,
Prema.

I can not connect to my hub from 10T-bese line


Check that your Ethernet cable is "good" (no broken wires)
and that it is not a "cross-over" cable.

Try a different cable.

Two cimputers online at once with Netgear EN104TP


If you're asking if two computers can be online at once when using this unit, then the answer is yes, they can.

If you're confused as to why two computers can get online at once with that unit, well... That's what it's supposed supposed to do.

I have 3 computers connected by D-Link router. Recently I found that the router was not working so I bought a netgear GS608 router to replace it, but I can't find the cd or instruction leaflet so I have no...


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. :)

Adding a PC to the network


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.
