Re: Password was changed
If you forget the password, press the “Reset” button in the front panel of the Switch, the current setting includes VLAN, Port Setting… etc. will be lost and the Switch will restore to the default setting.

Usually all those switches are plug and play ..and do not need much configuration ..but if you want to make changes or you changed the way you connect to the main internet source ...you have to use the same computer that was used first for configuration ..(it will be seen as admin ) ..and the log to the settings will be made the same as for a router..Look on the back of the switch ..and see what IP address has from the factory ..and type the IP address into the browser and hit enter.. for example in internet explorer ..write on the address bar ..: http://192.168.1.1 (this si just an example ..but the ip for the switch will be written on its sticker it will take you to the log in page ..and in there if nothing was changed .. ..you have to complete the lines with the words admin ..and password..or with the ones you selected when you first configured it .. In case you forgot all these..it should have a hidden button that will allow you to reset it ..and after that it will be to the factory defaults and will accept the IP on the sticker and the words specified in the manual for login ..to settings ..or ..will go to settings without the log on screen .
In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push
in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere
between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or
something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once
you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to
the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must
remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router
settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of
the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down
any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset.
Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.

What do you need it configured to support? Multiple subnets? VoIP support? Here's an example to support 2 subnets, VLAN 1 Data and VLAN 2 Voice. This switch is the VLAN router for the site and it is also the default gateway for all the devices on the network.

The computer you are conserned about most likely doesn't receive DHCP, but either manually
configured or gets the APIPA. The best way to check if that is the case to run ipconfig /all in command prompt.If adress starts at 169. search for break in line. If it is some manual configuration
change it in TCP/IP in network connections properties. Have fun.
