      My Gigabit switch to the Sky Router

      I have a DGL4300 Gamerfuel gigabit switch which worked quite happily using the uplink port to connect to various ADSL routers or Modems. Never been able to get the uplink to work with Skys router.

      Anyone able to take me through it.... Should be simple to connect uplink to any port on the Sky router and then bingO?

      Please I could not bear another 200gb file copy over a 10/100 network when I have gigabit networking available if I could sort it!

      I've never tried it but I agree that according to the spec, it does support "auto-uplink". Two things spring to mind that you might try:
      1. Duplex settings on the GB switch worth checking?
      2. Cross-over cable?

      Thanks for responding.

      All cables all along are and have been straight thru cables... it worked when I used the DGL4300 and a Speedtouch 536 but not with Sky's router.

      Sorry - I didn't explain myself: how about trying a cross over? Also, note my point 1: autosense is notoriously unreliable even on high-end kit.

      Re: My Gigabit switch to the Sky Router

      Hello Methanoid

      I can see this post is very old but will reply in case anyone finds it useful.

      I have set up a business Netgear router which uplinks to this one.

      One thing which might be causing the problem is that both routers should be on seperate subnets.

      My Sky router is on 10.10.1.1 and the internal router is on 192.168.1.1.
      The internal router's uplink IP is 192.168.1.253

      I will be upgrading to a gigabit D-Link router on Monday. This supports QoS so that a large file transfer should not disrupt all other traffic (I'm hoping!)

      Also anything else attached to the sky router can access the internet in an isolated way without being able to access the rest of the network.

      Robin
