Steady Link Prob. At 100, not at 10
serich Jan-08-02 11:25 PM
Hello, I have a home network setup with a NETGEAR RP-114 coming in (w/ 4 port 10/100 switch built in).
-I have one leg coming out into a computer that works fine running at 100.
-I have a cable running 50 feet to a switch (uplink) at 100.
-I have one more cable running 150 feet from the ORIGINAL NETGEAR SWITCH which does not work. The 100 link light will come on, then go off, then go on, then off, contuinually.
->This happens with either a computer (10/100 nic) or a switch (10/100 uplink) is attached to it.
->I can hook up a hub (running at 10) and it works fine, but i get lots of packets droped, and some latency times...

I would really like to have it running at 100, since my servers are at the end of that problem run.

Thanks for your help! ~Erich

In all likely hood you have a bad cable or it is not installed correctly (http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable9.htm). If the cable is CAT 5 or 5e with a solid core, i.e., the correct cable, and the plugs are CAT 5 5e for solid cable, I would inspect both plugs, try to pick the one that is most likely not installed correctly cut off the end, and install a new one according to http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable6.htm. If that doesn’t fix it, cut off the other end. Larry
