    Why are you connecting it to a hub? There is no reason in the world to use hubs anymore.

        do you actually want a hub, or do you want another switch?

        It should be as straight forward as connecting the new network-device to the port you mentioned.

        Of course, it's possible the upstream Cisco 2960 may have MAC restrictions or similar.. or vlan tagging..

            If you must use a hub (There really isn't a reason why though) Crossover cable from switch to hub. If the link is failing look at the logs on the 2960 to see whats going on.

            If switch to switch, and want to carry information for more than one vlan, then it must be a trunk. (On cisco switches - Tagged ports on HP stuff). For just one vlan then it can be an access port.


            Can't really tell whats going on as I dont know if its a switch to hub, switch to switch connection. Are both switches cisco switches?
