Re: 2924 xl en question about making it a hub

As a start, you don't want to have a hub link as full duplex unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure the hub supports it. Even if they say they do, hubs are notorious for barfing on full duplex. The rest of the question I don't quite understand. Are you trying to connect the switch to the hub, or are you trying to make the switch _act_ like a hub? It's a little unclear from your post title.
