well in my networking envirinment i cover large residential areas & on average dumb hub/switches every now & then i get complains of switches & wire problem which increase my service downtimes ..
now this is my first time with a intelligent cisco switch , my current network diagrams look as shown in the diagram, & as i have ran couple of test on it in my lab i have found a way cisco switch can help reduce my downtime dramatically ..
please see the diagram & tell me will this work ? & what if i have 3 routes to the to a pC..
from what I can tell from your picture, you are trying to connect your (interconnected) hubs/switches to the Cisco switch through multiple links. Wether you are having two or three connections on the Cisco does not really matter, because spanning tree will block all but one of those, since otherwise a loop will be created.
I do not know if this is physically possible in your situation, but the best setup would be to connect each hub/switch to a separate port on the Cisco, this would eliminate the spanning tree problem, while at the same provide for better bandwidth utilization, since each hub/switch would have a dedicated link.
It's never a good idea to go that deep with your switch/hubs.
You have 1 point of failure on both segments. I think what the previous poster was trying to relate is that you should try to make it look like a tree. You need to branch each part to a switch port on the cisco switch if possible, keeping the number of switch hops to a minimum.

When moving from OSPFv2 to OSPFv3, there are many changes in the format of the LSAs Type, but the most known changes are: IP prefix informations are no longer carried in Type-1 LSA and Type-2 LSA, new LSAs Type 8 and 9 are added to carry these prefixes.
