[TriLUG] OT: More on the RR Network issue
Thu, 11 Apr 2002 13:53:43 -0400
Could be a minor break in your cable. You should give it a good forceful
pull (not a yank) - if it's an intermittent cable problem, that just might
be the straw you need for a repair (or it might actually fix it.)
It could also be a reflection problem, if cable from the splitter box is too
short... I've seen that exact problem with arcnet type networks.
