chinoy, i think the problem you are experiencing may be the result of the cables you are using...i noticed you also posted an inquiry about the configuration of UTP cables.  This is where it makes a difference...when you are using a 10 mbps connection (e.

the 5 computers in our house use CNet PRO200 10/100 LAN cards, the original plan was to use a CNET 10/100 hub but it didn't work (the hub was a lemon) but we were in a rush to finish the network so we settled for the next available hub, the PLANET 10mbps.

Chinoy,

Since you are using a 10/100 switch it could be speed-detect issue with your cards.   Try to fix the settings to variations of 10/100 - full duplex/half-duplex.   Sometimes the auto-detect on Windows doesn't work well.   The best bet is to

zerodivide,

ummm, nalilito na ako, are you asking about the cables in Batangas or here in my house? In the Batangas site, 3 computers, 1 and 2 are just 2 feet apart and the 3rd one is about 20 feet, here in our house, maximum distance from computer

Chinoy,

Okay, since your individual segments aren't that long there shouldn't be a problem with the cable.    My prime suspect would be the autodetect settings that the card is using.   So if 10-half duplex works (change all the PCs) move up to 10-

jojitb,

that will be my next option, I'm going back to Batangas next weekend, and I have a feeling that it will work there, but the question will be, how will I ever make the D-Link hub work?
