How to reset the Jumbo Frame setting on a KuroBox
- My reply. since I'm not sure of a few things not
having a KB. Anybody can feel free to chime in, if I
appear to innacurate.

From previous posts, it seems to be possible to
connect via a crossover cable. If your computer has an
auto-MDX ethernet port, then a crossover cable isn't
Look at the lights on the Ethernet Jack. One usually
shows link and the other data. So, if you have a link
light, your connecected to a "Ethernet" network. i.e
Speaks Ethernet. No harm in trying. I've only had a
print server that required a hub/switch to configure.
In a standard hub, the out port just has the pins
reversed. There is no real direction. So a computer
connected to out of the hub and an in port will
function as though there is the equlivelent of a
crossover cable used. It should actually be better.
Most computers and probably the KB have a mode that if
there is no DHCP server on the network, they pick an
address in the 169.254.x.x address range. They pick
an address and the other device picks one and then
checks if it's in use. If it is, it picks another
one. So, it is theoretically possible to connect
without a DHCP server.
Here is a Microsoft Link:
This is how you can connect 2 PC's together or a MAC
and a PC. Windows networking requires the same
The set-up is both devices are set to DHCP. I believe
a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 on the computer will route
all to the computer, especially if th KB is set to
something other than 255.255.255.0, so in this special
case, the subnet mask need not be indentical. Gateway
address doesn't matter.
Not owning a KB, I don't know if there are any
auto-discovery tools, but there are tools that will
ping all addresses in a given range such as IP Ping
In windows, you can set the link speed from
auto-negotiation in the device manager. THat may or
may not help if the link speed on the KB is set to
Gigabit. If it's set to 100 or 10, then jumbo frames
are not avialable, right?

- I am using a NETGEAR GIBABIT ROUTER, and
I have my Linkstation set to 9000K Jumbo Frame.
If you NIC supports jumbo frame, LEAVE THAT SETTING OFF.
it wont work properly.
