Netgear switch GS748T smart switch needs reboot very frequent
I have a serious problem with my netgear switch it gets hung very frequently and needs a reboot or restart to get it back working. I have spanning tree disabled and DHCP is disabled, i don't have any VLAN configured or in use. However it gets hung could you please tell me what could be the reason?
From the description--especially the part about having "spanning tree" disabled--the first thing that I would do is look for network loops. STP/RSTP ("spanning tree") detects these loops, and disables ports to prevent packet storms. If that is the problem, enabling STP should clear it up--but you also want to make sure you want those loops in the first place.

This is a very important tip that should be taken seriously. You never
know exactly what will happen in the computer world. You might be
downloading one file and the next second your staring at the "Blue
Screen of Death" It's very serious and important that you make frequent
backups of your computer.
There are many backup programs out on the market but the most used by
regular computer users would have to be the integrated Windows Backup
program. It's easy, fast, and simple to use but it might not serve your
purpose. Here are two levels of computer users that I categorize for
certain backup programs:
Regular Users - Windows Backup
Users that install programs often and mainly use the computer for
entertainment, documenting, and other things like that in a single
Power Users - Norton Ghost This group is for programmers, hackers, administrators, and other positions of that sort. Programmers and hackers tend to kill their machines with intense
viruses and programs which feed themselves in Windows Backup files. It
can't hurt using both of the programs, just be smart about how you use
RF interference is the most common reason why WiFi will drop signal from time to time.First – make sure your wireless router is not next to a source that can cause interruption.I have mine on a shelf about 5 feet off the floor.Also make sure that your wireless home phone is not right next to it. Home phones can cause issues with signal as well.
There can be many reasons to it. Contact Netgear support in your country. To find the support numbers, just google---- Netgear 'your country' Support ----- and you will most probably find a helpline. The helpline staff are very knowledgeable.
