What is a loopback cable ?
Posted on 2004-03-21
after i assign IP address(Ex: 192.168.0.1) to my pc, I can't ping using the ip that i have assigned unless i connect my computer to a hub.
I heard that we can make a loopback cable using UTP and we just connect one end of that cable to the pc and no need hub and then we can ping the ip that we assigned to that pc.
So i followed their instruction to make the cable, but it doesn't work after i connect this cable to my pc.
