Hub AND Switch!?
Posted on 2002-03-21
I have a network with 6 computers now. My current hardware is a small 5 port hub. I just bought a new 5 port switch and a couple of cables (one to uplink, one for the sixth computer).
I moved the 4 computers used most to the switch, and the other two to the hub.
There is an uplink cable between the two devices and the link light is on.
The problem is, computers on the switch cannot talk to computers on the hub and vice-versa. However, computers on the same device can speak to each other just fine.
What is the problem here? Can you not put a switch and a hub in the same network together?
