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.

Got a small business needing a new switch, dusty warehouse environment, 16-24 port 10/100/1000, with POE for VOIP phones, doesn't need routing so it can be unmanaged layer 2 ,  Last but not least small business budget.  I would like some opinions (including why) on fairly durable switches that won't break the bank.

We had a Cisco Catalyst 1900 switch die this morning and need to replace it. My concern is getting the right fibre connections. What will I need to do if I want to replace the 1900 with a Cisco Catalyst 2960?

Thank you!

Hi All,

I am having problems loading OS image onto a new Nexus 9504 with 2 sup below are the steps i have tried, any advise would be much appreciated. image i am using is nxos.7.0.3.I5.2.bin

1. Reload switch and
2. Ctrl + C
3. cmdline recoverymode=1 and cmdline init_system
4. boot nxos.7.0.3.I5.2.bin (which is copied on bootflash/)
5. After this it starts configs and took some time but displayed other messages: System is coming up ... Please wait ...
6.After this, it returns to bash shell: bash-4.2# and nothing happens
7. Both switches, I have reloaded twice and retied again; but still same.

when i exit it takes me into (standby) login: but requires username and password which i have tried all the defaults and will not let me in.

Thanks

Hi All,

We got Linksys LGS552p switch, and TZ400 Firewall.
behind a "AT&T Modem"  , but we have external IP for the TZ 400.

I need to setup VLANS, 90 for workstations, 20 or servers and 50 for voice.

am I missing any hardware to route between the VLANS?
where should I start with first?


thanks
Jason

Hi all,

I have purchased a pair of HPE FlexFabric 5700 40XG switches. In the past I have used Cisco SG series switches so I am new to HPE equipment. Is there a gui for the HPE FlexFabric 5700 40XG switches?

Hi Wizards, I am just wondering about this issue? Can we specify the cost of commands in terms of consuming resource (CPU, RAM) in Cisco devices, such as Routers, Switches?

Many thanks in advance!

I need to enable spanning tree on all of our WAN switches and designate our edge switch as root. However, the same switches have several ports that extend into school district LANS, causing issues with my current STP config.

Eample: port 1 connects to our WAN, ports 19-24 connect to their LAN. What would be the proper configuration in this case?

All schools have ProCurve 3500YL switches.

Hi experts,
i need some advice. i have about 50 pc's on our company network with 1 file server that these pc's access for AD,DNS, DHCP and our financial application(uses access database). we currently have a 48 port 10/100 switch with 2 gigabit uplink ports as the backbone and then 2 gigabit switches connect to this backbone switch. i was aiming to replace the 10/100mb backbone switch with a full gigabit switch but budget is a problem at the moment. would the following work as a temporary solution for about 3 months: I will install a very entry level 8 port dlink gigabit unmanaged network switch as the backbone, connect my server and links to other switches to this 8 port switch. so from the 8 port switch i will connect all 4 network cards on my server to this switch as well as the link cables from my 3 larger switches. I know this is not the best solution but i just need something that will do the job for a few months? or would this small 8 port switch take too much strain?

I have multiple Cisco switches, from 2960's to 3750's.  I have them all configured via SSH, and randomly, after a few weeks, I can't connect via SSH anymore into them.  I use PRTG to monitor them, and I noticed that when something happens to the certificate, that's when I can't log in anymore, so my monitoring system displays an error for the cert.  When configuring SSH, does the default cert expire after a certain amount of time or something?

Any ideas how to fix this?

Hi guys,

We currently have a 6 switch stack (SG500's) and we are moving to another building that will require us to increase our switch size to 9.  We are aware that only 8 SG500's are available per stack so I was wondering what the optimal switch setup should be.  Do we need to buy a core switch to maintain performance?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

With this config from POE switch s5500 connected to core S5120 i got the phone working but i could connect or ping the S5500 ip address switch ... What's wrong !!

Is it the write config for a voice vlan setup like this (Core switch + poe) phone-pc connection !!

------------------------------------------------------------

Port connected from S5500  to core  S5120 port 10

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/48
 port link-mode bridge
 port link-type hybrid
 port hybrid vlan 210 tagged
 port hybrid vlan 1 untagged

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Phone port on S5500

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/19
 port link-mode bridge
 port link-type hybrid
 undo port hybrid vlan 1
 port hybrid vlan 210 tagged
 poe enable

---------------------------------------------------

Port on core switch S5120 connected to S5500 on  port 48

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?

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?

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.

hey ,

the port that has the sfp SR does not come up , i have tried to do a shutdown no shodwon and still does not come , when i do shutdown command the port does not go for orange color .


i am confused !

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.
