    We've just taken over IT management at a new location. They have two 2950 Catalyst switches. We haven't really worked all that much with Cisco switches, so we're having some problems figuring this one out.

    In their computer lab, they didn't have enough network drops so they had some small 5-port switches in place. We started having issues where only one machine connected to the small switch could receive an IP. It was basically the first machine that was turned on, then the rest could not grab an IP.

    We've tried resetting the Catalyst switches to factory settings. We've also tried different small switches. Each attempt was unsuccessful. We're still unable to use the small switches anywhere. Only one machine connected can grab an address.

    Please help! We're stumped. Remember, we don't have much experience with Cisco equipment, so please keep that in mind.
