It was blocking the entire network. I didn't thought that was posible but I saw it with my own eyes.
I want if has happend in other cases and if it is possible to prevent some how this problem.
Thank you verry much.

    The broken switch was connecting by CAT6 coper wire (82 m measure by Fluke Network device) to the center of the network witch consist in 3 devices 3COM4400 connect in to a stack.
    About half of the other switches are connecting through fiber optic to a 3COM 4900SX witch itself connects to the center by fiber optic.

    Thank you :)

    I have a stack of 4 X 4400, last week of October they went bananas. They would lock the network three times as day, somtimes more. I have finally pulled them out and we had a fine Weekend and Monday. So it's a switch problem. How do I find out which one is the faulty one?

Sounds like they are daisy chained together and this glicth locked the system.  How are the switches routed through your network.  Do you connect via T1 or Fiber?

Inherited 2 switches 3com 4228g (3c17403) password problem


I haven't worked with these switches but generally settings such as ip address and factory defaults can be set through the Console Interface (CLI). You will need a null-modem cable to access this and a terminal client (Windows Hyperterminal works).

Hope that helps

Problem with SW 4400 - restarting....


switch dont restart by themselves without command, first remove the switch from the network, disconnect from internet, make sure you hadn't fired anybody recently it sounds like a hack. reduce network traffic to local area only and priortise important internet traffic. now got back to the switch and troubleshoot make to check the reboot command on error or when error is found, if the problem stops when the switch is remove somebody is messing with the network.or the darn switch is faulty install a new one.
