Cannot connect to network through point to point T1 connection?
Posted on 2004-10-21
The company I work for has a lan and internet access is through a T1 line, at location A. We recently had the T1 line extended through a point to point circuit to location B. I need to set up a pc at location B which is connected to our lan at location A. I have tried to install a hub connected to the Cisco 1700 series router that SBC left after hooking up the point to point T1 at location B. When I connect the pc to the hub and try to run the network setup on the floppy, it keeps telling me that it cannot connect to the domain. Location A has a server running Windows 2000 small business edition and all the pc's on the network use Windows XP pro. I have tried both patch and crossover cables to attach the hub to the Cisco router and have also tried to connect the pc directly to the Cisco router using both patch and crossover cables. No matter what I do, it never is able to talk to the domain at Location A??? Since I am not a network person, I really don't have any idea what to do next? SBC does not respond either. I don't know if I need a different piece of hardware like a switch or something or if I just don't have a clue as how to set up a pc at location B to connect to our main network at location A? Please help if you can. This is a time critical project and I am stuck. Thanks!
