Specs: Server 2008
So just to start this is my network setup i have the cable modem connected directly to the server using a NIC, then the server has two other NIC each NIC is connected to a unmanaged switch.Here is my problem i have a desktop connected to the switch and the desktop doesnt receive any packet from the server.But when i connect the desktop directly to the server i get connection to the server and internet.

Am i doing some thing wrong?
Help will be appreciated, Thanks.

sounds like you are using a crossover cable which is why it works pc to server but not pc to switch. Use a regular patch cable for this.

Thanks for your reply Waderer,

All the cable that are connected to the server are straight patch cable even the one i connected directly to the pc and server.
