Hi I have a Netgear router with 4 Eth ports.. and I have connected the following:
- x-over cable connected Netgear and Cisco switch port 1 - default settings
- 2500 router via Eth0 port to port 2 of Cisco switch & IP Address range is same as Netgear Dhcp
- Laptop Win 7 plugged into Cisco switch - port 6
- Host pc XP plugged into Cisco switch - port 4
For some reason one minute I can get internet access on my laptop and as soon as I connect my Host XP pc to the cisco switch I appear to loose internet on both.... Somethings up and I dont know what..!!
The Netgear router is set to default settings...
Temporarily Ive disconnected the x-over cable between Netgear router/Internet & Cisco switch and plugged laptop directly into Netgear Eth port for direct internet access to send this thread..
Im thinking about adding a mac address on the Netgear for the following:
