    Unhappy Problems with small Network

    I have a small network three computers with hub. It used to be two computers connected directly together without a hub. Is there an easy way to fix that wire that connects the two machines adaptors or something like that.

    Sorry if it's me or your English but I don't understand your question. More info please!

    Is there a problem w/ your cabling?

    Are you using the same wire that you used when you had it setuo w/out a hub? If so then you may need different cables other than "crossover" type cables.

    The wire which previously connected the two computers was cat/5 and I am trying to use it without rewiring. What I am trying to find out is if there is a way I can use some kind of off the shelf adaptor to make it work in the hub situation.

    The cat5 should plug right into the hub w/out adapters.

    If you connected two computers together without a hub, you were using a crossover cable. You need to buy new patch cables that are wired straight across (the same on both ends). After you do that, everything should work fine.
