Hi All, I have an issue that is as follows:
I have 4 desktops, 2 laptops all running Windows 7 Ult. 4 X64, 2 X86. 4 satellite receivers, a WII and 2 PS3's all on line.
I have the following setup for my network.
I have a Thompson DC476 Docsys 3 plugged into a DR-615 which does the DHCP, which is plugged into a 24 port Cisco Catalyst 2950. Which feeds the rest of the house. Upstairs I have a 4 port Netgear as a dumb switch that does the wireless for the phones and a tablet and the WII.
There are no real configs on the Cisco other than PORTFAST has been enabled and all ports are is switchport mode access on the default VLAN.
The only way I can get the Homegroup to work is to plug all the PC's into the DR-615 and the Netgear while ensureing the Netgear is plugged into the DR s well.
If they (PC's) are connected through the Cisco I loose the Homegroup. I can still see all end devices in Windows and access them as long as I've shared it out. I can ping all through the house with no problem and have no issues streaming to either of the PS3's from any unit.
(PS3 Media Server).
So I guess my question is what is the Cisco blocking that the other 2 let through?
