cisco catalyst 2950 12.1 (22)EA4 not connecting to router

I shipped a newly configured cisco 2950 switch and walked a individual through connecting switch to uplink port to router. When the user connects cable from Dlink to port1 on switch we get no activity light on port 1. I went into switch by having crossover cable connected from new switch to old switch and change port speed and duplex and still have the same problem. User is utilizing a cat5 cable that worked on old switch. Any ideas?

Hi

you can check the status of the ports on the switch with the 'show interface fa 0/x' command.

You should see something like this if the port and cable are Ok:

#show interfaces fastEthernet 5/2

FastEthernet5/2 is up, line protocol is up (connected)

Hardware is C6k 100Mb 802.3, address is 000d.28b7.fd09 (bia 000d.28b7.fd09)

Description:

MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit, DLY 100 usec,

reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255

Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set

Full-duplex, 100Mb/s

HTH.

Regards.
