I recommend replacing the switch as well. Sometimes you can get those switches to limp along for a while longer, but they can also cause additional damage to the network attached devices as well down the road.

Don't take the chance, and replace the whole thing. I wouldn't say that Cisco is the only brand that i would recommend. 3COM and others still make quality switches. Also, your replacement dependson your needs as well, as some people need managed switches and others do not.

Honestly, if what you had before worked well, I would replace it with the same thing. Additionally, make sure you're using a UPS device on this as well to prevent surge damage.

Also, as a side note. When this device shorted out, were there devices connected to it or was everything unplugged? If there were other devices connected, they too can be damages, although they don't always show signs of damage at first. Be sure to check them out as soon as you get the new switch installed and connected.

Where is the short circuit? usually you cant fix a short unless it is in the power switch itself.i would sugest trashing it and replacing it. i always stick with cisco brand but there are other god ones. check pc world and cnet reviews on switches and routers. cost you more to repair than replace.

Yes it can be repaired. You will need to hunt around for a circuit diagram for it. I have four of these old things in commission at home here and this exact thing happened to one of them. I ran a multimeter over the power supply circuit board (top left) and found one of the capacitors out of spec. The resulting limited power to the rest of the unit meant that it couldn't cope with traffic on all ports. Replaced and fixed the problem. Needed soldering iron and multimeter. Good luck, hope this helps.

Tip

Xbox live NAT


Simple Rules

-if your NAt is strict and cannot connect
try turning your hub off for 30 seconds then turning it back on
if that didnt work.
-try resetting your IP address.
if that didnt work
-take addaptor from xbox to pc out for 30 seconds, then put it back in
if that didnt work
- try opening thies ports

TCP 53
UDP 53
TCP 80
UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074


Helpfull Info

Sometimes depending on the router brand, it's not possible to open your NAT, this simpily becuase some are not specificly designed for Xbox Live purposes. A good example of this is Belkin routers. These brands are most commonly made for Buissness connection servers. If you are experiencing a STRICT/MODERATE Nat with a Belkin router, the chances are you are going to have to deal with it, but that is not 100% of the time. If you've have attempted several techniques to open your Nat and the changes arnt happening, i'd recommend a 'N' powerd Belkin router, the most majority of these routers work 100% perect for Xbox Live, I myself oned one but changed due to a broadband switch.

How do I change the NAT firewall protection? (Open/Moderate/Strict)

Find your IP address number then type it in on your web browser, this will bring up all your switchable options where several options can be changed to your approval. The NAT firewall is one of these options which can be changed. (like I mentioned before, if you own a Belkin router, the chances are even after changing the fireall level, it will turn back to moderate or strict)

How do i connect two computers so they both have the same ip address i have a linksys 5-port workgroup switch will that work ? also i had hooked it up but only one of my computers had internet


They cannot have the same IP address due to the mechanics of DHCP. Buying a cheap 50$ router (not switch) will fix your problem as your internet service provider will see that device as a single unit that it will assign an IP and then the router will give out internal ip addresses so that they can get online. The switch does not have this functionality.

You mentioned in your question that you had a router. If it is actually a modem, then yes, you need a router.
The reason that the Ethernet hub is not working is that your modem will only give out 1 IP address to one device on the hub. With a router, the router uses the 1 IP address and shares access to the internet via that 1 IP address.
Yes, you'll need a router instead of a hub.

Only two of the bubs seem to be working (#5 and 6).


well, io-gear is at it again I see. They have always had a poor quality record, and I see that it has got you now as well.

What has happened is that part of the the hub's circuits have burnt out. It might be something as simple as a resistor, or it could be an i.c. logic chip. For the cost, I would just get a new one. they only run about 20-30 bucks for a good one, and they come with a warranty

A router between your ISP and the switch will assign addresses to your PC, the printers, whatever you connect.

Or, if just the one computer needs access to the Internet and the printers, you can install/configure a second Ethernet port in the PC, connect it and the printers to the switch, and give them all static IPs in a private address space (e.g., 192.168.1.0/24)

Netgear JFS524 network cable unplugged error on all pc'c


Hi Ewan,

How is the modem/router connected to the switch?

Have you tried changing the patch cable that connects them together, or the port they are connected from?

When troubleshooting this type of issue, it is always best to check each layer of connectivity (1-Physical,2-Data Link, 3-Network Addressing, etc.) in order from bottom to top, due to each layer being dependent on the layers before it.

DNS is important but wont be available until you have a physical connection and a IP address.

If you can achieve a stable connection while the PC is connected directly to the modem/router, but not via the switch then work your way from one end of the link between the working component (in this case the modem/router) to the other (PC) - testing each part along the link.

If the switch is faulty after you have performed some testing, it is best to change it out and test with another switch (if avalible), before purchasing or sending the JFS524 away for repair (if still under warranty).

Let us know how you go with the testing.

HP tx1009AU not booting up


I don't know HP's cost, of replacing this motherboard. A qualified, authorized, HP repair shop, will probably charge $300 to $400 dollars. To include the new motherboard, and labor to replace.

Too bad that you don't want to try it. A new motherboard may be $180 off of the internet.
Labor cost? 0 (But read on. This may not be advisable)

Quick search on Ebay for Pavilion tx1000 series motherboard,

http://computers.shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=hp+pavilion+tx1000&_sacat=60265&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1311&_odkw=&_osacat=60265

Your Pavilion tx1009AU, is part of the Pavilion tx1000 Series. All the same motherboards.

HP.com/Support and the PDF Maintenance and Service Guide, (It's a Service Manual. Don't let the
-> 'Guide' fool you!)

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00853874.pdf

Should the above direct link for the PDF Maintenance and Service Guide, not work for you,
here is HP.com/Support, and the download page for it,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3350312&lang=en&

On this page, go down to the first manual listed ->
HP tx1000 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide <- in blue. (Size: 3.48MB) Click on it.
You may not see anything happening. Give it 20 seconds at least, then the first page should pop up. Let it fully download before looking through it.

Tells you how to properly disassemble the laptop, and reassemble it. Gives you the part numbers, gives you the Specifications, and how to replace individual parts. Shows illustrations also.
Service Manual.

Just thought, I would pass this information on to you. Food for thought.

ONE more item!

The reason a LOT of laptops are being recalled, due to motherboard problems, stems from the DC Power Jack, and the way it's mounted to the motherboard. (Or having warranty work done)

The DC Power Jack, is that little round opening, where you plug the AC adapter, (Charger) into the laptop.
It is a small rectangular piece of plastic, that has a round metal sleeve in it, and a metal post in the middle.
This, is an example of an average DC Power Jack,
http://us.st12.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/yhst-42877593004970_2046_1336946

These jack's break. The middle pin can break in it's mount. Those flat metal pins you see sticking up, from the link above, go down into the motherboard. (The photo shows the jack upside down, in relation to how it sits on the motherboard)

These flat pins are soldered to the backside, of the motherboard. The solder joints can break.

For those laptops recalled due to a motherboard problem, it's due to the design of the motherboard, and how the DC Power Jack is attached.

Crude example:
Think of the laptop motherboard, as a 1 foot square. (As you can see, it isn't)
Now attach a 2 inch square to one side of this.
The 2 inch square is actually part of the motherboard. It looks like a 'Peninsula', sticking off of the main body of the motherboard.

Now attach the DC Power Jack, to this 2 inch square.

With the 'Charger' plugged into the laptop, the charger plug can get bumped. This can move the DC Power Jack enough, that the 'Peninsula' can break off, of the main body of the motherboard.

This 'Peninsula' can also break off, just due to everyday usage. Plugging the charger in, and taking it back out.

There are very flat, thin, copper strips on a motherboard, called 'Traces'. Think of them as very flat thin wires.
The traces, coming across the main body of the motherboard, to the 'Peninsula', can become stretched, and break.

This, results in No power coming from the 'Charger'. Nothing to charge the battery, nothing to keep the laptop working!

Bad motherboard design. Not the laptop manufacturers fault, (In this case HP), but the fault of the designer, that designed the motherboard.

So even if you do replace the motherboard, there's no guarantee this issue won't happen again.

Sorry this was so long and drawn out.
