Hello,
Morning,
I have a wireless broadband router linksys 2.4ghz. I connect a switch to the router and i connect a hub to the switch. The hub is placed 100 meters form the switch. The problem i had is that there is no data transfer between the switch and the hub. the computer on the hub side complain of limited connectivity.
I have tried the following to solve the problems:
1. I tested the RJ45 Cable to see the continuity of the cable which is satisfied okay.
2. I ping the return loop of the cable using 127.0.0.1 the returns loop also work well.
but the problem still persisted.
My Modem use a dhcp automatic configuration and my router also was set to automatic configuration.
I was able to browse when I used the modem connected to the router and from the router to my personal system just 1 meter apart.
Pls i need someone who will guide me step by step how to get my lan working with the switch.

Thanks.

hi,
this is because the cable is too long.
this phenomenon is called attenuation.
you should reduce the distance or try to use relays.
