Catalyst 2950 T 24 port

We recently purchased a 2950T 24 port switch.

We have a DSL line running into port 1 on the switch. Being new at switching in general, especially managed we have an issue.

Even though all our computers on the switch are 100 MB we are limited to the 10 MB DSL line because all of our data goes out the gateway then back into the computer.

We assigned the switch an IP address and gateway as well as DNS servers but still are not quite sure why it sends the data out and back in again. This is extremely annoying. Especially when moving 650+ Megs from one computer to another.

If anyone can help me please email

Regards,

Wally

Re: Catalyst 2950 T 24 port

Wally,

couple questions / comments for you:

1. A 2950 is a layer 2 only switch, meaning it has no capabilities to route or send data out a default route/gateway, other that it's own management traffic.

2. If your internal hosts are not on the same IP subnet this might be the problem. For host on subnet 1 to talk to host on subnet 2 they need to go through

a layer 3 (routing) device, which might be your DSL equipment.

With out more information I would just be guessing here. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Regards,

Don
