Re: [SLE] Two Hubs
Thanks to all who responded. I'll consolidate my replies here.

This d-link is a 5 port + shared uplink (5 is 5 or uplink). The uplink simply
doesn't work. The uplink port may be flubbed.

However, I have another suspicion. I once had a Lynksys hub. It said that it
could only be uplinked to other Lynksys hubs. I've a strange feeling that the
d-link hub might be the same way.

Either way, my solution is to get a new hub for Hub B.

Thanks again,
