I think, the best way for your problem is go back to your old switch, if
your old cable is cat 3 , checked your cable is cat3 or cat5, cat3 won't
worked with switch 100mps.

Hi all,

This seems like a stupid question but here goes :

In the lab I have setup a windows server 2003 inc exchange, and two
workstations, at the time I used an old 24 port 10 meg switch and all
works fine, yesterday I got hold of a new 8 port 100 switch and no
matter how I try I cannot get them to communicate, even by pinging they
cant see each other, so I assumed the 8 port to be faulty, today I
purchased a new 8 port switch and still the network does not work.  I
have now tested both 8 port hubs on another test network and both
switches work fine ........ scratching my head now, how come both
switches work on another network but not the domain controlled win2003
server test network ????????  anone shd a light on this for me
