Question about Symbol WS 2000 Wireless Switch (WS2000)

1 Answer

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.

I have a Netgear WNR2000 v4 router. We recently had a power outage.Power came back on in 5 seconds.The cable modem is fine,however the router ONLY shows me a solid green light for power, nothing else.


I would just do the reset, this should allow you to access at factory defaults. (I hold button in for 10 sec).

A solid green (power?) light is good
LAN ports should only light if connected
WiFi port should light if set to active

My wii fit board won't connect with tv is the blue light suppose to stay on all the time or flash


Hi, thanks for using Fixya!
  • Open the SD card slot on the nintendo wii, open the battery panel on the wii balance board.

  • Press the two red sync buttons on the wii console and the balance board and hold for 3 seconds.

  • The blue light on the back of the wii balance board should flash for 5-10 seconds and then stay blue.

  • If this doesn't work then try changing the batteries and trying again.

If it still isn't connecting then the problem is something a proper nintendo expert will have to help fix.

Thanks, I hope I have been of assistance.

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.

Light stays on when i turn it on, cannot connect


For this headset, the Blue light should blink before you can connect it via Bluetooth.

Have you tried holding down the multi-function button of it for 7 seconds and then release it? If not, try that until the Blue light flashes. If it will not work, refer to the user manual of the headset or this could be a defective one.

I have 2 comtrend dh-10pf powerline adapters. one of the adapters status is a red flashing light and the AP light and the Ethernet light are blank. the second powerline adapter has a solid red status...


Hi,
To start you need to factory reset both adapters,
plug them both into a wall socket next to each other, press the config/f reset button, hold in until ap light goes off, repeat on the other one.
Now you should have a red status light on both.
Press the config/f reset button on one for about 5 seconds, wait until ap light stays on, this one is now your access point (ap) that should be plugged in to your router when you have finished config.
Now press the ap adapter config button again for about 5 seconds until ap light flashes, then press the config button on the other adapter until ap light flashes, wait until they both stop flashing, wait a few seconds, the status light on both adapters should be green, and one adapter should have an amber ap light.
Hope this helps.

ENET Port issue on BEFW11S4 Wireless Router


Hi!

Try these steps:

1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.

Try these and hope it will help you ;-)

Dead Creative Zen M


Usually this problem is due to the firmware. When the firmware is updated to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will be corrected. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.

You will need a wall/AC charger for the operation. Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected to direct AC power via the wall charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer. Then begin the firmware download.

If your Zen does not power on when connected to the wall charger, your unit is dead and its time to replace it or get the motherboard replaced via one of the Repair services offered on this website.

If the upgrade button on the firmware window is not available, it is also time to replace your motherboard due to corruption of a chip on the board.
