Re: packet tracer and 2950

... or it could be that you are using crossed cables.  Between a router and a switch, you should use a straight cable.  The 2960 has auto-crossover detection, but the 2950 does not, so the 2960 can compensate for having the wrong type of cable.

   One end or the other is not turned up   or a  bug in the program.  If it lets you post configs maybe you can post here.
