This is the config. One 3Com baseline 2250 10/100/100, one 3Com Superstack 3 baseline 10/100/100, one 8 port Linksys hub 10mb, one 5 port D-Link switch 10/100. I have tried both the Linksys and the D-Link devices to attach two PC. One is XP the other is 98 OS. No matter which hub or switch is used only one of the PC will find the network when both are connected. Any ideas? Thank you for your help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you checked that both cables are good and one of them is not a cross over cable ?

    Or maybe IP setting - like DHCP? check the routers/switches to see which is or isn't serving up DHCP.

    if your server is set up for DHCP, make sure that one of the routers isn't doing so as well....and as mentioned in an earlier post, check the cables. Paul

    What is 'find the network'? If you have static IPs, and the gateway IP is correct, try pinging a remote device with each when connected by itself. 'Label' the good connections, and test the others too if there are no LED status confirmation. When both are on the switch, try to ping each other and remote device. When you're connected to a switch, look at the port status to see it the switch reports it as there (link up). PS: I have had older 3com switches that port 24 'dies' a quiet death, it looks okay by LEDS but won't transmit traffic.

    I concur with the other replies that you should check each one with a cable and port by themselves to make sure that the cable and ports are ok. The only other suggestion I have is because you are assigning IP addresses, Are you sure that you have not assigned the same IP address to each of the Machines, Or the other suggestion is to make sure you are using the same IP range and Subnet Mask on the two machines
