Having problem with 10 base T network cards. I can get them to "talk" via the Cat5 connections but not the BNC (coax).
I have used several cards in several computers. I have run the diagnostic/setup programs for each card. They say that they are set for auto detect, eprom OK, board OK but I get continual cable errors when I test them with the coax or terminators connected.
Have checked the coax cable for continuity and shorts, it is OK. Have tried "initiator/responder" tests. They work with the cat5 but not the coax.
My question is, when I run the tests, should I have anything attached to the BNC connector? If so what, a terminator, a "t" connector with a coax connected in a loop to each side or nothing at all?
