Question about Symbol WS 2000 Wireless Switch (WS2000)

Blue light flashes on the ws2000

When I try to connect to the ws2000 via cat 5 cable from my laptop, i can only stay connected a few seconds and the solid blue light starts flashing and i lose connection. I am on my second switch and motorola wants to send me another one. As long as the switch has no activity to it, it is fine. But as soon as we try to connect with the laptop or the symbol mc9090 scanners, it starts flashing. I can't stay connected long enough for my software support to reconfigue this new switch. Our network was working fine for 89 days and then it just stopped. Don't know if i have a power supply problem, but motorola just wants to send me a 3rd switch. This is driving me crazy. Any ideas?

You can try to connect to it through the DB-9 serial port on the front (you need a null modem serial cable). The CLI interface isn't very intuitive but if you can connect this way you might be able to reset it to factory defaults or reload the latest firmware. If not then get a new one.

All lights flashing


Unless the electronics is broke you seem to be having a wiring related issue. Besides a loop then a short in cable or at a port.

Verify no apparent physical stress displayed on unit or cabling and the correct power supply.

One test for bad electronics is by removing all wires, then look for bent & touching conductors in any of the ports from a poorly crimped cord damaging the port. Try to straighten back into shape - 8 per jack or once the touched eliminated if meta fingers bent my not be able to use that port and check the cable ends for cause and don't use.
Without any cords return power. Only the power light should remain on after about 3 seconds. Any other light display says problem and after verifying correct power supply call it toast - it broken.
If only the power light is lit then connect the 8 conductor (4-pair) Ethernet cable from the cable or DSL modem. That port should light if that device is alive. Note: No telephone RJ-11 size 2 or 3 pair cords, if it fits in a telephone jack you got the wrong one and can damage a port physically. RJ-45s used in Ethernet
are noticeably larger.
Assuming no strangeness in the other lights with the cable/DSL modem connected add one cord at a time to the other ports. Stop and remove any that caused/causes the initially observed condition that is the problem leg; try a different cord and examine the problem cord for physical damage (cuts, tears, squashed blemished area, ends pulled such that conductor open, or two or more wires shorted on an end)
As to internet connection try with only link to Cable/DSL modem and one cable to a PC and then see if the PC is obtaining an IP address via DHCP filling in the interface settings. If Windows "ipconfig" if Mac OS/X or Linux "ifconfig eth0" at the command prompt in a terminal window. Ping the entry for gateway, if no lost packets the connection is sound PC through e-switch to modem. Enter as new problem with modem type and PC operating system if this is a problem after the wiring is straightened out.
When the switch is working correctly Power light is steady ON and Port lights are mostly ON but blink with traffic down that leg.
Does this help?

Hello, I have a Belkin 2.0 USB 7-Port Hub, and having trouble with it. When i plug it into my computer, nothing happens, there is no power light and ultimately it seems as though the device is dead. ...


You first need a CAT 5 cable to go to where your internet connection is, such as a modem or another router to your hub. Then you plug another CAT 5 from the hub to your PC. You need to feed internet to the hub then your pc will recieve a connection from the hub. And of course the hub does need power. Hope that's what you were asking.

When I plug a cable into port 8 it will shutdown the switch


Your router supports a total of 8 connections. However, on the back there are 9 physical ports. Port 8 has two physical connectors where one (we will call it port 8a) is used to connect to a PC and the other (we will call that port 8b) is used as an uplink port. The uplink port (8b) cannot be used if something is pluged into 8a. If you are trying to use all 9 physical ports that is likely ther problem. If you need more than 8 devices connected to your switch get another 8 port switch (any brand will do) and connect the two switches via the UPLINK port with a 7 foot CAT-5 cable. Do not use a CAT-5 patch cable less then 7 feet long to connect two network devices together such as computer to switch or switch to switch as that will probably cause another problem with timing.

Another possibility is that the device at the end of port 8 has a malfunctioning network adapter. Try connecting a laptop to port 8a using a 7' CAT-5 cable. You may also want to try pluging the problem cable into another port as a way to test if the problem is somewhere along the cable run.

I have a cisco router linksys. I connect internet cable to it in ethernet port. Neither by wire not by wireless I can connect my laptop. The connection comes as only local


If you can plug the cable that you have ran into your router into your computer directly and it works, then you can plug the router back in. Then connect the computer to the router via cable and unplug the router for about 15 seconds and plug it back in. If you connect the computer by cable directly and it doesn't work, then try unplugging your router for about 15 seconds and then plugging it in. I have found many networking items that need to be reset whenever a network cable is plugged in when the device is powered on.

Lost connection between switch and hub - LED flashes every 5 secs


You say you have the same problem when you connect the cable directly from router to laptop, so it apparently is not a hub problem. That leaves the router and the cable. You're fortunate in having a working system on the other port. Why not try swapping pieces to see which is the failed piece? For example, what if you swap the ports for the cables? If it's a router problem, then the "bad" cable should work when in the other port. What if you swap cables? That would reveal a bad cable. Finally, swapping computers would show a computer configuration problem, such as the connection not being set to automatic.

Linksys routetr problem


HI,
The problem can be caused, because of two reasons, one the router profile on the computer has got corrupted and second the router itself. Have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults.. Caution: all wireless security settings and user name and passwords would go back to factory defaults.

1.Disconnect all cable from the back of the router.
2. Shut down your computer and the DSL box
3.Press the reset button, using a paper clip at the back of the router.Keep it pressed for 5 seconds
4. Disconnect the power cord to the router
5. Switch on the Dsl box, wait for the lights to stablize
6. Reconnect the interenet cable and the power cable to the router and power it on.
7 Let the lights stabalise on the router and power on the computer.

Check if that resolves the problem, if not we might need to update the router.


Thanks
Proton
