Brother 2700CN Color Laserwriter--Loss of Ethernet Connection

The Brother 2700CN can be networked by a twisted pair Ethernet cable, USB Shared Printing as well as a Parallel port. Ethernet is favorable but it appears the Ethernet port is malfunctioning. The cable is fine as it works for other components. The green lights on the the printer and the Hub no longer come on when connected.The Ethernet connection was working up until a couple days ago. I am currenting using the USB connection and sharing the connection on the network. Any suggestions are appreciated.

What is a network extender?

Wikipedia says: An Ethernet extender (also network extender or LAN extender) is any device used to extend an Ethernet or network segment beyond its inherent distance limitation which is approximately 100 metres (330 ft) for most common forms of twisted pair Ethernet. These devices employ a variety of transmission technologies and physical media (wireless, copper wire, fiber-optic cable, coaxial cable).

What network cable does a belkin N600 use RJ11or RJ12

Look again. Those "RJ11/RJ12" are not 2-pair/3-pair small Telco jacks but rather the 4-pair lager size found in Telco data com circuits (ancient DS0/T1 technology) and commonly now for Ethernet often referred as Local Area Network, LAN, data communications at 10 up to 1000 Mbps.
An RJ45 is larger and can not fit into an RJ11/RJ12 jack. The smaller RJ11/RJ11 will insert and make contact with the inner pins but if the line is active the Belkin device now has/will have a blown port. Don't!

Your Belkin N600 expects one Ethernet cable from a cable or DSL modem into the WAN or Internet port on the Belkin N600 for link through your carrier to Internet.

A four port gang of Ethernet RJ45 plugs is also present and is where your in-house PCs and Ethernet peripherals plug in. On the OEM website usually there is a colored quick setup guide to help you.

Some OEMs designate a yellow Ethernet wire from cable/DSL/satellite modem to WAN port and blue for internal LAN devices to try to reinforce outside verses after the NAT firewall inside the router for your internal LAN. The signal doesn't care about color it's for you.

The internally generated WiFi or WLAN (wireless LAN) is part of the LAN side but allows WiFi radio connection to client devices.


The 4-pair Ethernet cables have 8 conductors wIth the wire end of the plug to you and the contacts held upwards you will note the four pairs and their colors blue, orange, green and brown each with one conductor of the pair white with the color and then the color solid or more correctly the color with white stripe. Signals are on pins (left to right) 1&2, 3&6. On standard cable both ends are the same - a straight through, for hub to client. A cross-over cable takes 1&2 to 3 &6 on the opposite end and vice versa. This was for client to client or hub to hub connections before auto-sensing ports showed up to make the signals swap if needed automatically found in most equipment today. Some cables from OEMs have the correct physical size and pinouts, but only use the 2 signaling pairs. It is best to use these short distances and preferably away from rf noise like in modem to WAN port connections.

The twists per inch in the cable and interweave determines frequency response which defines CAT 3, CAT5, CAT5e and CAT6 level of Ethernet cables. CAT5 is fine else CAT5e/CAT6. CAT3 is generally considered now for telco use only, but can be pressed into into service short haul. (Won't get the 328 ft rated reliably above 10baseT speeds).

You may run across Ethernet with PoE this means on unused pairs a device like a video camera is fed power as well as data connectivity over its Ethernet connection. Follow directions to put power to the correct location as needed and look for any recommended grounding requirements, especially with antennas.

Prices vary widely depending upon bubble packaging and the store overhead generally $6-$12 for about 6 ft or 2 m.

If you want to make your own then RTFM and understand millage may vary until you get the right tools and parts and practice while adhering to standards. I find it more cost effective to use pre-made & tested cables except if failure at an end then I repair followed by testing to re-qualify the cable to not degrade its use.


OBTW - Generally the USB was for single computer use at lower speeds of earlier service speeds below 3-6 Mbps - usually don't.

How do i use my samsung c5212 as a modem to pc and to connect to internet.

Follow the below mentioned steps : 1. Connect the Samsung cell phone and computer. If you are connecting via USB, connect one end of the USB cable to your Samsung phone and the other end to your computer. It may take a few seconds for the proper drivers for the Samsung phone to install. If pairing via Bluetooth, make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your Samsung phone and start a search for devices on your Bluetooth-enabled computer by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon in your taskbar.
2 Launch Internet Sharing, found in the Start menu on your Samsung cell phone. Open the application.
3 Configure Internet Sharing. The status menu should read "Disconnected." Under the PC Connection setting, select the method you will use to connect your cell phone to the computer--USB and Bluetooth PAN are the choices. You shouldn't need to change anything under Network Connection, unless a network other than is showing on the display.
4 Start the Internet Sharing connection. On your Samsung device, press the Connect soft key. It may take up to 30 seconds for the connection to be negotiated, during which the status line may say "Check USB cable connection"; this is normal.
5 Connect the computer to the Internet sharing phone. If your computer and phone are paired via USB, no further pairing is needed. You will see the shared Internet connection as a wired connection in your Network and Sharing control panel on the computer. If you are connected to the Internet Sharing application via a Bluetooth personal area network, the computer must be synced to the phone. Right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the taskbar and select "Connect to a PAN" or similar, based on the version of Windows you are using. A list of all Bluetooth PAN connections within range is shown; select your Samsung phone. The PAN connection will be negotiated, and the Internet connection will be shared.

Usb broadband modem

Im not aware of any gadgets, but you can always use the USB stick on one laptop, share the internet connection, and connect the other laptop throught the shared connection.

That would require your laptops to be networked, either by a crossed cat cable or with regular switching or routing.
