Hub/Switch unstable connection

by solant1 / July 14, 2005 11:38 PM PDT

I have this problem of unstable connection with my switch/hub 32 ports cnet. I got a disconnection of all of my computers suddenly in the middle of busy days and when i turned off the hub and turned it on again a few times..maybe 3 times or more it'll be okay again.. But it really give me a bad day. What do you think is the problem, i bought this hub/switch 3 years ago. Is there anyway that i can detect if the hub is really the problem...

testing...
by Dick White / July 15, 2005 12:09 AM PDT

You've observed a system-wide problem which what resolved after restarting the only system-wide device. You could pull the switch and send it to be tested, but the cost of that would likely exceed the cost of a new switch. But before you do that, carefully examine all your connections. Are they tight? If all the systems on that switch lose connectivity at the same time, is it just connectivity to the mothership or to each other as well? If only the mothership, then inspect your crossover/uplink cable and that port. Sometimes just one port goes bad, but if that one is the master uplink, well, you get the point...

Just a comment.

Some mistake this to be Cnet product support. That's over at some CNetusa.com or such site.

Given the price of switched hubs, I don't fiddle with them much except to give it one last shot by ripping the cover off it and hitting the inside with a blast from the compressed air can. Nobody seems to tell you that equipment needs minor maintence.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
