Another cabling question - BNC
Posted on 1998-05-12
There should be a General Networking topic area!
I have a small NT network that spans between two buildings via a coaxial backbone. One building is wired with Cat5 10bt, the other building has a bus system using the backbone to connect to four PC workstations, one LINUX box for my UUCP gateway, and 5 Amiga 2000 systems. All I want to do is take the PC's off the coax, drop a hub in the place of one of the PC's, and install 10BT cards/cabling. I want to leave everything else alone. The problem is that once everything is installed my 4 PC's (that are plugged into the hub) can only see each other and the rest of the network cannot see them.
I have made sure my cards work by plugging the PC's in from a different area, I swapped the hub with another hub to make sure it worked. I've tested the cables. Everything seems to be in order. Also, when the hub is plugged in, the other PC on the bus can still see the whole network as usual.
Can anyone help with this????
