    I got this thing and had some problems getting it configured okay, unfortunately the self install from the CD didn't work in my case.

    Had some problems converting my cross over cable for the second computer from a cross over to straight through, after 5 wasted ends it seems to be working.

    Question is:
    The maim PC in slot 4 only lights up the 'Link/Act' LED while the other pc in slot 3 lights up all three. It sems to be working okay. is this something I shoul be concerned about? Can I still have a problem with th cable ends or?
    Thanks
    Will

    I have a Linksys router/hub 4 port also. I spent more than a day trying to debug 2nd PC connection only to find out I had a bad cable.

    There are a few (not many) picky rules, about what ports to use, may want to check instructions or website on that.

    Not much I realize, but my experience on where to start!

    PS When re-checking connections, be sure to unplug and replug ( power supplies and reboots) according to directions.

    It's an indication that the connection is established at 10 rather than 100. In addition to cabling issues - it could well be the NIC setup on that machine. What's the NIC, what's the mobo and what slot is it in (or is it onboard)?

    As an aside - this is a good page re Linksys
