i have to install 3 2960 switches into our new office. I have setup the switches with an IP address each and that is it. I have connected two PCs to one of the switches and set them with static IPs address in the same subnet as the switch itself. When I go to ping each pc or the switch I get no reply. \can you please suggest a basic config that will allow comms across this switch.
secondly as I have 3 of these switches I need to connect them together. What ports do I connect them too and do I need to add anything to the configs?
Lastly i have a cisco 2911 router which i would like to connect to network. is it ok if i just connect this to come of the FE ports? also for ports 1-10 I would like any device connected to these ports to be given dhcp IP addressing range 192.168.100.1-10. How is this done and is it best to use the 2960 or the 2911 to do this?all other ports have no dhcp.
|I know there is a lot above so any help would be great please.
