Sporatic Connections when fiber uplinks plugged in

Unanswered Question

I plugged my laptop into our core switch which is a 3Com and that is uplinked to our cisco 2801. We have 2 fiber uplinks off the 3com. I can ping other machines on that switch when the uplinks are not plugged into it but when the fiber uplinks are added, I get sporatic ping results. 3Com is pointing fingers at the cisco router but the traffic shouldnt even hit that if the devices are on the same switch. Any ideas?

Hello Matt,

on the 2801 disable ip proxy-arp on the vlan interface or router interface of interest and retry.

use :

no ip proxy-arp in interface config mode

Hope to help
