Hi Tim, 

Is the managed switch a Gb switch ? if to try to force the port where the
m0n0 is connected to on 100Mpbs instead of auto detect

Good luck,

Jurgen

Subject: [m0n0wall] network connection problem with an HP 2424M switch and
m0n0wall

This may just be a standard networking problem so apologies if it's not
directly m0n0wall-related.

I have m0n0 running on a WRAP 1C-2 and a second hand HP 2424M managed
switch.  I want to connect the switch directly to the LAN port on the m0n0.

However, when I connect the two ports directly with a normal
straight-through network cable, there is no connection; nothing lights up
and the port is shown as off on the switch config page.  However, if I put a
normal non-managed switch between the m0n0wall and the 2424M, the connection
works.

This made me think that I needed a crossover cable - however, when I made
one up the I ran into the same problem - no connection with just the cable
but a connection with a switch in between.  Basically, it looks like the
WRAP flat out refuses to talk directly to the managed switch without an
unmanaged switch in between.

Any suggestions?  I've tested all the cables I'm using and they are fine so
I'm pretty sure it's not my crimping that is the problem.

Cheers,

Tim
