    I am new to networking stuff , correct me if i am wrong.
    We have recently set up a new network with
    a NETGEAR 24-port 10/100BASE-TX Fast HUB.

    When we have installed the new hub, i have seen like
    there are some ports in the hub which did not work
    when i hooked them to some computers.( i was not sure)

    Now after 1-2 weeks ,
    There is one particular system in the network
    which is Windows XP professional which is loosing
    network connection from the domain repeatedly.

    From 3-4 days we have to checked the LED at both
    the ends (XP PRO laptop end & Port end at HUB)
    the LED is not glowing , and we have changed the
    cable to a different port in the hub and now
    the LED glows at both the ends and the LAPTOP is
    in network. This has happened for about 3-4 times
    and each and everytime i am changing the port in the HUB.

    These 3-4 ports which failed in the HUB, when i hook
    them up with a different system also they dont work.

    I guess there ports went bad.

    How can check this ?
    Is there something wrong with the new HUB
    Do i have to check something else ?

    Any help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like the ports are just bad and you should replace the unit. It's still under warranty, so there's no sense in messing around with it at this stage.
