I'm using Cisco 2950 switches, and each access switch has access ports to different access VLAN.

Now, When i'm trying to connect PCs with VIA Rhine II NIC at these switches, they will not obtain an IP address from the DHCP server "Cisco 1841 Router", i connect my labtop with Intel NIC everything is fine.

I tried to hard code the speed and duplex from the switch port side or fom the PC side, not solved.

I updated the VIA Rhine II NIC driver, but still the same problem.

Also, i configured portfast at the switch access ports, still the same.

To solve this issue, i connect them to two 3com switches and connect the 3com switch to access port to each Cisco switches.

Do you have any idea how to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance
