hub to hub x-over?
tekwiz Feb-13-02 04:02 AM
I have a main hub (3COM OfficeConnect)at our church that needs to connect to multiple PCs that are too far away from the main hub to get a signal with 10/100 Base-T networking. I already have used the link/uplink port 8 on the hub to connect to another hub in another building. Can I use a x-over crossover cable to connect this new hub onto another port?

In a 100BASE-TX Ethernet you can have a maximum of two non-stackable hubs between PCs. Larry

This absolutely not true. I would suggest that you read some books. Larry
