Question about 3Com OfficeConnect Dual Speed 16 Plus Networking Switch

How do I connect to 3com officeconnect dual speed switch 8 plus

How do I receive the wireless signal from my Macbook to a 3com officeconnect dual speed switch 8 plus. The router was given to me so I dont have the manual etc. I can connect all the cables but how do I make my mackbook receive the signal? I've been told I need an IP address. How do I find out what the IP address is?

Also, I cant see a reset button on the router? Do I need to find this as presumably the previous owner had a password to use it.

I have a 20 mbps adsl line, but whene i connect the 3com 3crwe554g72 router wireless i only get 2 mbps , why?


This issue is most likely due to the quality of the signal between the PC and the wireless. If there is a lot of interference or the wireless devices are far from the 3COM, then the signal will be less then optimal. Sinnal quality will degrade quickly when going through walls floors and celings as the density and metal contained in these structures block wireless signals. Interference can come form other wireless devices, cordless phones, RC toys and some wireless mice and keyboards.

The other factor to consider is the type of wireless being used. Wireless like all technology get better as time goes by. As new technology comes out it is categorized and classified. For Wifi there are currently 5 separate specifications for wireless. They are:
802.11 (Specless) - approx 1997 era devices. operates at 1 to 2 Mbps
802.11 a - approx 1999. operates at 6Mbps.
802.11 b - approx 1999. operates at 11 Mbps.
802.11 g - approx 2003. operates at 54 Mbps
802.11 n - October 2009. operates at 100+ Mbps

If you have an old wireless device it will work with the 3COM but only at the speed it was designed for.

You can always check your speed by connecting directly to the 3COM with ethernet cable and going to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

3com linkbuilder TP/8 I bought a used 3com linkbuilder TP/8 and have no manual. Is this a wireless router? at the back there is BNC port. What is it for? Thank you


I am pretty sure what you have is an ethernet hub..not a wireless router. It would be used as a distribution site for a shared network. The BNC port is a connection for coaxial cable.
