Network Connection Issue

Hi All,

When I connect my Laptop to Cisco 2960 switch port, It acquires IP address after 45-50 secs, sometimes it gets timed out.it dosen't happen when I connect to a nortel port.

Could anyone suggest what can be changed in the cisco switch configurations so that it decreases the connection time.

Re: Network Connection Issue

If you always use the same port to connect to the switch turn on portfast for that port.

Switch#spanning-tree portfast

That will cause the port to enter forwarding state immediately. The 45-50 secs delay you see is STP checking for loops before forwarding begins.

Use with caution though if anything other than a host device is likely to be connected.

Hope this helps, please rate if it does.
