20 Most Recent 3Com LinkBuilder TP/12 Networking Hub Questions & Answers


A network hub allows computers to be connected together...up to 12 of them in this case...but it doesn't provided any other network services such as DHCP (automatic address assignment). I may be able to provide better information if you can tell me what operating system you're using.

Here's one way to set up a network for file sharing...if you're using Microsoft Windows1.gif XP:

Connect the computers to the hub and turn them all on. You may need to manually assign addresses to the computers, (ask if you need a detailed procedure) but Windows XP will usually assign itself a default address.

On each computer, click on Start -- Control Panel -- System -- Computer Name -- Network ID -- Now give the computer a name and Workgroup name. In order for the computers to share files1.gif, the workgroup names must be identical on every computer.

Next, click on My Computer and Right-Click on Shared Documents -- Sharing & Security -- Share this folder on the network

Now if you click on My Network Places, it should be possible to see the shared folders on the other computers.

Good luck with this....and I hope this is helpful!!

I don't know anything about these units, nor do I have time to source any docs for you, but maybe you can try connecting a PC directly to the port your patch panel is connecting the the switch from, you can at least see if that port is working.
My next and only other suggestion is to invest in a "LAN cable tester". In my area, you can find cheap ones for U$20.
The tester will allow you to check connectivity between any two ports, and allows you to test both patch links and individual CAT5/6 cables.
Good luck!
