Workgroup Hub
BiliTheAxe Aug-14-00 07:01 AM
I have a National Semiconductor 6 port INFOMOVER Hub and I am having a problem getting it to work properly. I have all 3 computers configured and working properly with only 2 systems connected together nic to nic. I am trying to get all 3 together but the hub does not want to work with me. The manual says I need a UTP cables. I have made the cross over cables from this site and they work great in the nic to nic configuration. But I can only use the 2 computers in this config so that does no good for the 3 computer config. I do have the pin assignments for the RJ45 ports on the hub if that will help. Any thoughts?

You need straight-thru cables between the NICs and hub. Suggest revisting http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable6.htm. Larry
