Lan sw/routing problem

Bare with me im a newbie to cisco products.

I am planning to replace our hp hubs and switch with cisco equipement.

I have a cat 3550 and a cat 2950 for testing. I am planning on using 2 48 port 2950's, 1 24 port 2950 and 1 24 port 3550.

I would like to have all my servers/printers on the 3550 and connect the 2950's to routed ports on the 3550. is this the best way to go or are there better otions.

Right now im having trouble routing. i have a hub connected to the 3550 at port 23. it has a subnet ip of the 3550 is configured with a ip. when i connect a laptop to the 1.1 subnet it can ping both the 5.23 ip and hte 1.1 ip of hte switch and the 3550 can ping eveything. i can not however ping the 1.1 ip from my server connected at the 5.0 subnet ont eh 3550 sw. i can also not ping the laptop on the 1.0 subnet adn the vice versa. where shoudl i start with this. any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Lan sw/routing problem

For your routing issues, check your default gateways on all devices. If one end station and get through, you will want to put the other stations under the microscope first, rather than the path.

Read through the documentation located below to get a good handle on how to go about configuring the 3550:

Re: Lan sw/routing problem

start with checking the default gateway settings of the pc and the server. Chances are, they are using the same default gateway. Config the current default gateway with the new IP routes and things should look better. Or, you could add a default route to the 3550 and point the server and pc at the 3550 for DG services.
