post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
ok so this is my setup

cable modem -> router -> computer

that works but when I try

cable modem -> router -> switch -> computer

it does not work even though a ps3 is after the switch like the comp and it works

You should post this in the Networking - Security Forum.

Are you running an actual switch or a router as a switch? Do you have any connectivity at all? Can you ping the router/switch? Tracert? Have you tried setting a static IP?

Yes, we need more info. Are you running static IP's, if not try this. What type of switch is it (important to verify managed or unmanaged). Checking ping would be good too, try to ping the router from the PC behidn the switch and see what happens.

on most my computers (the ones my family uses) the ips are not static. on mine they are. xbox is .69 ps3 is .70 my computer (regardless of os) is .99 then all non static are 100+.

the switch is a netgear 5 port switch gs105. When the comp is hooked up to it i can not visit 192.168.1.1 (my router) but the ps3 seems to work fine.

one thing i found weird is that when i plug the eth into my nic from the switch i get a solid orange light indicating 10mb connection but it is a gigabit switch (the wire however i am almost positive is not cat 5e or cat 6) could this be part of the problem?

1) if you connect the PC with it set to autoconfig does it get an IP.

2) can you ping the switch.

3) basically from what you're telling me we're probably looking at only a few problem. either hardware failure (cable or switch) or configuration. I'm going to go google that switch to see if it's managed or unmanaged, will report. back.

Ok, it doesn't appear to be managed, but twice now i've seen port 5 sections out seperately with no real description of why. DON'T use port 5 and see if you can connect then.

Lastly. Are you running any security on your router. It just dawned on me, that if you're using MAC filtering on your router you may need to add the switch to it's access list. Since this switch does have some advanced featuers it may have a MAC, and the router may be blacklisting it.

I think you've got something off in your router config. The switch is working, now we know the cable is, the NIC works, and the router was trying to hand out an IP, but not a proper one. Something in the router config is tweaked IMO.
