PostPosted: Wed Mar 07, 2007 6:57 am    Post subject: Limited or No connectivity when using a HUB Reply with quote Back to top

Hi,
I am having some trouble when trying to intergrate a hub into my exsiting setup which is as follows.

Cable Modem
\/
Motorola VT2442
\/
PC


What I want to accomplish is

Cable Modem
\/
HUB (Netgear DS108)
\/ \/
PC Motorla VT2442


This is so I can use the vonalink screenpop software.

However every time I plug everything into the hub I get the limited or no connectivty from my PC the phone still works fine, so I know the hub must be working ok. I have tried repairing the connection in windows but it just says its unable to complete.

Any suggestions
Thanks
Chris

Two connections from the DS108 into your PC?

The hub is a "dumb" device. Everything connected to it appears as if it's on the same network.

If you've connected the WAN port of the 2442 to the hub (which you must have done else the phone wouldn't work) then what you've ended up with is your PC sitting on the WAN link between your router and your modem. Bottom line - this won't work.

If all you're connecting is your PC, then you don't need the hub. You can have up to 4 devices connected right into the 2442's LAN ports.

If you nee more than 4 devices, then connect the hub to one of the 2442 lan ports (might need a cross-over cable). You can then connect 3 devices to the 2442 and the rest to the hub. All will be able to access the internet and each other.

BTW - that hub is a pretty lame device. I wasn't aware that anyone was still making hubs anymore. Most everything has gone to switches. You can pick up an 8-port switch for less than $40.

I agree with Mark. Why does the vonalink popup software need a hub? is that a hardware requirement? I guess I need to get more clarification on the need for a hub. Your motorola has 4 ports available to connect a computer to.

I have tried to hook Vonage up to a hub with no success. Hubs dont pass mac addresses like switches do. You need to hook your Vonage box to a switch for it to function properly, as far as i can tell. ive experimented with Vonage in quite a few different scenario's. No success at all with a 10MB hub. Good success with Linksys Wrt54g's and GS's. Good success with cisco 2950 switches.

Cheers

Switches DO pass mac addresses just like hubs. The difference is that switches learn what mac addresses exist out on each port and only forward packets destined for those machines.

The Wrt54g is not a switch. It's a NAT router with integrated wireless access point and integrated 10/100 switch.

I only have 3 wrts here at home, and 40 in the office on my WAN network, with 24 satelite sites. They all have jacked up linux firmware on them, with varying WDS configs. Your description of them was !!!Very HELPFUL!!! I was referring to the onboard switch. I know the difference between a switch, and a wrt. I favor wrt's over all other hardware in its genre. They are more scalable, and versatile.

My point was that hubs dont treat mac addresses the same as switches. As you so thoroughly acknowleged. This is why you dont use hubs for Vonage. Our verbage may have been different. But the point still remains.

Cheers

Words have meanings, and in the IT/networking world saying precisely what you mean is important.

"Hubs dont pass mac addresses like switches do." They certainly do - the mac address that comes out is identical to the one that came in in both cases. The two devices don't _process_ mac addresses in the same way, but they both leave them intact.

How about "packets destined for a given mac address are passed (forwarded) differently with hubs and switches."
