How to get ME3400 out to the internet.

Unanswered Question
Jul 6th, 2010

Hi Guys,

I've just started on my CCNA studies and I've got an ME3400 that my boss has given me to play around with.

He would like me to update the software by connecting to a TFTP server but I can't seem to get it going.

I've got port 1 hooked up to our LAN and set-up to pick up a DHCP address and its grabbing one.

I've added the default gateway and set it to the ip that port 1 is picking up.

what else am i doing wrong?

I have this problem too.

Hi,

If you connect your computer to the Internet instead than the switch, the computer gets Internet?

If so, the switch should get access too.

When the switch gets an IP address, do a traceroute to 4.2.2.2 and see where the packets end.
