server wont connect to other pc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First off, i hope this is in the right section....

i am kinda new to the whole advanced computer networking thing ( advanced to me anyways ) , but my issue is i have a file server with a Intel duel gigabit server adapter in it. i am running these two ports teamed in Link Aggregation to an un-managed 24 port 10/100 switch, which the rest of my computers and my router are connected to. i don't know if it makes a difference, but i have 9 computers total connected to it, and a ps3. the computers are all running windows.

when i go to access the server from a remote computer it gives me an error (not the exact wording of the error) can not access this computer contact your network administrator to resolve this issue. or something around those lines. this is for every computer, not just one. if need be i can provide what the error says exactly.

the thing is, it works when the adapter on the server is not teamed, i can access the server just fine. could this be a driver issue? Or an issue with teaming two gigabit ports to a non gigabit switch? maybe a firewall issue on the server? (using windows firewall on server and kasparsky internet security on other computers )

Just to clarify JARGON!!!! ALERT!!!!!

NIC TEAMING = Link Aggregation = Trunking

n standards
Ethernet (10Megs)
Fast Ethernet (100Megs)
Gigabit Ethernet (1000Megs)

I am going to ask why it is that you are trying to trunk two gig ports into a fast ethernet switch? I mean it is an unmanaged switch, so it will not be able to trunk the two ports together. You may have it setup that way on the PC end, but the switch does not know what to do with that aggregated traffic. I cannot see how it will provide any performance increase at all.

You have a 100meg interface on a 100meg switch. Your network is only as fast as it's slowest link. Having two 100meg interfaces plugged into a switch is not going to net you any gains unless the switch knows to combine them as well.

If you spent $60 on a gigabit switch you would see an immediate performance increase just using one interface. Without the NIC teaming.


Added: You require 10 ports so you have two options for Gig Switches.

If you go searching for a 16 port Gig switch you will see the prices are $130+ for the popular brands.
I found one for you at a reasonable price here.
If you search for an 8 port gig switch you can get a trendnet for sub $30.
You could buy two 8 port switches and cascade them with a single ethernet cable.

However, I want to point out to you that doing this will impact performance. I fully understand the concepts of how and why this happens, I feel like I cannot adequately describe the reasons why so here is a link that if you read the first response explains pretty well.


Please expand on what you are trying to accomplish with the NIC teaming. Then we here at OCN can provide better insight and guidance to assist you. -_-

Thank you,

As stated, teaming is not supported on an unmanaged switch.
