What I have is a 2900 and a 3500xl to be daisy chained together via a x-over cable. port 17 of the 2900 is to be conencted to port 8 via a gbic 1000Base T connection.
1)I have tried both to hard set (100 full)and leave autonegotiate port 17.with no activity.
2) none of the ports are shutdown.
3) Gbics is active and working as I plugged the x-over to port both port 8 and 4 of the 3500 and a link was established.
4) x-over cable works no problem
5) I do not know what the problem is any help greatly appriciated
