A switch is a device that filters and forwards packets of data between LAN segments. Switches operate at the data link layer or the network layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model and therefore support any packet protocol. LANs that use switches to join segments are called switched LANs or, in the case of Ethernet networks, switched Ethernet LANs. A hub is a connection point for devices in a network. Hubs are commonly used to connect segments of a LAN. A hub contains multiple ports; when a packet arrives at one port, it is copied to the other ports so that all segments of the LAN can see all packets.

I have 2 Mikrotik switches that connected via 2 port to router.
2 uplink port is bridge,because they are using 1 subnets.
 i found that Mikrotik switches works:
1-all interface use 1 master port
or
2-all interface in 1bridge.

switches clients did not ping other often.always restart the switch solution of problem and i guess because of switching mechanism in Mikrotik.
Can i help me find problem correctly?

I have an unmanaged Cisco/Linksys SG 100-24 switch. It has gigabit capibility.  My servers are connected to this switch at 1 GB and it's on auto detect however my PC's which are capible of gigabit are only connected a 100 mbs.  I've tried to make them 1000 full duplix but I'm only seeing 100.

Hello - we have a Windows Server 2012 that has 2 NICs that are bonded into a Team Nic connection.  It was working for a short time, where it was successfully able to access the Internet and network resources, but then a yellow exclamation mark appeared on the NIC icon in the service tray and it stopped getting out to the Internet.   I was also not able to RDP to it (strangely however, my cohort was able to remote to it).  so I went on to the machine's console and "Diagnosed" it.  it wanted to remove the NIC teaming and when both adapters are separated, it works - meaning I am able to assign static addresses to the adapters and it connects fine.  I forgot to mention that at first, when I diagnosed the Team connection, it wanted to switch it to DHCP and then the yellow mark went away.  I was not able to make it a STATIC IP assigned - it only takes DHCP.  But now that the NICs are separated again, I can assign static IPs. Looking for some insight.

Dear Zealots, is there any method to observe, monitor the traffic from one (or multiple) IP address (es) to a IP address?
We are using Cisco Router 3925, Switch 3560, 3750, 2960
Many thanks in advance,

Dear Team, we have several Catalyst 500 acting as Access switches for users, printers, Finger prints (FP) and Access points.

Here is a problem: 2 FingerPrints -----------------------90 m---------------------------- A small switch (LinkSys)  ----------20 m----------- Catalyst 500

In Catalyst 500, there are few modes for port operations; such as Switch, Router, Access Point, PC, Printer,... When I configure a port (which connected to a small switch) in Switch mode, I cannot ping those 2 FPs, but when I set that port to Access Point or Router mode, I can ping them.

Besides, it only works for few hours before disconnected (request time out). I have to reboot FPs to ping them again.

Can you please explain?

Hey Guys,

I have ESXi 5.5 and the server has 2 nics. The 1st nic is going to a switch, and that switch lately seems to be having issues with dropping packets, i have a lot of leg work to do to completely remove (Which is the plan soon), now i have a second switch on the same vlan and i can run a cable to that switch for us to work off of. Should i set this is up as NIC teaming or can i actually use this new NIC as part of the same network without any downtime - essentially move everything to this nic without making network changes ?

I have cisco 3650-48fq-s with 4 TenGigabitEthernet sfp ports trying to connect to at&t 1gig ase circuit but link not coming up.

Here is the config on the port:
Interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/1/4
Switchport trunk allowed vlan 110
Switchport mode trunk
Speed nonegotiate


Then I tried on cisco 2960-XR with 1gig sfp port on it and it worked.

I have 4500 series cisco L3 switch at another location with TenGig sfp port on it with same above config and works there.

I just got a general question :
 
If there is a company with 2 Managed switches(Dlink) and all computers and servers are connected to the switches. And has a dlink router.
If a user complains, accessing files to the server is slow from my computer .
How do i troubleshoot? from where do i start? is there any specific tools/softwares to troubleshoot.
I AM just new in networking career. so sorry guys if its a simple question.

Hello experts,

I have an old 3COM 4500 switch (3CR17561 91) and I need to set up QOS to give one machine in my network preference over the internet, including browsing and downloads.

I have access to the web admin page and I don't know how to configure the ACL to this purpose. I need the IP 192.168.10.182 to have full precedence over other connections to the internet. He is connected to port 20.

Here is a print from the configuration page:

I read a lot of info here about people with this same problem and using command line, but if you could help me with this web interface I would appreciate.

Regards.

A few years back I had to fly to a remote data center and was sent several cisco switches that were to be "stacked" I recall unboxing everything and plugging it all in via instructions from my home office. I booted with a console cable and configured the initial IP address. Then home office pretty much took over and although I was able to observe a lot if it did not sink in. I do recall the stacks only had 1 IP address each and since it was a remote data center we had set up switch redundancy. I remember plugging in cables that had to be crossed to the switch below and when it was all done everything was set with dual power supply and I could have sworn it was configured so if a switch failed another one would take over. I had another job after that where a cisco stack was already installed. I recall 5 switches and when we had to shut down power the Master had to do go down last and come up first. At least I think that was the order, it was written on the wall next to the devices. I am asking all this because I have a job interview that will including installing and initializing a lot if Cisco devices including stacks. It sounds like it will be very similar to what I did years ago, installing the hardware and getting it set so the engineers in the home office could take over. I just do not remember the purposes for a stack as apposed to multiple switches. I know you will save IPs by configuring a switch as a stack, but what the other main reasons? I know the remote install …

Hello Everyone,

I have a single Cisco Catalyst cat4500e-LANBASEK9-M) switch running iOS Version 15.1(2)SG6. We have two VLANs in place. VLAN10 (data)=172.16.1.0/24 and VLAN20 (SAN)=192.168.58.0/24. I am currently able to ping all resources on VLAN20 from the switch. However, I'm unable to ping  resources on VLAN20 from resources on VLAN10 (data)=172.16.1.0/24. The switch is not connected to any other switches. this switch is connected to a Cisco ASA5506 on GE0/1 (172.16.1.1/24). Could someone please help me figure out what I am missing?

Thanks.

This is using a Netgear Prosaft M4100-50G L2 switch. There are 2 VLANs on this switch, namely, vlan 10 besides 1. Ports 12, 21-35, 38-40, and 44 are on vlan 10. The rest is vlan 1. This switch is located in our remote office. There are 2 uplinks connected to this switch from our hq. The first uplink, connected to port 43, is basically uplink for vlan 1; second uplink, connected to port 24, is means for vlan 10. This logical segregation works perfectly, any port either belong to vlan 1 or 10, can grab the IP from respective dhcp servers located in hq.

2 week ago, thing changed. Users using vlan 1 ports found that they no more able to grab the IP. Their port looks like is entirely "isolated". After much checking, we were having a "workaround", that is, get in an additional 8-port switch, move the first uplink, and connect it to this 8-port switch. After that, get an additional short network cable, with one end connect to 8-port switch, and the other end to any vlan 1 port of this netgear switch. The vlan 1 operations are back to normal.

Just wondering why? How to get the netgear switch to work alone without this workaround?
Please see the netgear config as attached.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Experts,

I recently ran into some issues with my new Switching equipment. Since cost is always a big factor in home lab toying I changed from HP ProCurve to the Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch. More specific I change my 2920-24G with a 2SFP+ and a 2 10GBe extension to a Ubiquiti ES-48 and a Ubiquiti ES-16-XG.

Since I have now more than enough SFP+ Ports for my home lab toying around I wanted to create LACP between the Node (ESX Host) and the Ubiquiti ES-16-XG to connect the node with maximum performance to the Synology DS3615xs which I also upgraded with a dual Port SFP+ Card.

Here a little schema
lacp_issue.PNG
Now the Synology DS3615xs was very easy to setup and as you can see in the attached picture (SynologyLACP.png) seams to be working as a dynamic lacp member on the ES-16-XG.

With the vSphere 6.5 Distributed Switch it seams like a whole other story... I can't seam to find the ressources or manuals where they describe how to do it with the DS or how to get it working.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

Cheers,
Yves
