Question about NetGear FS605 - 5-Port 10/100 Network Switch (Recertified) (FS605NAR)

1 Answer

I bought a netgear FS605 swtich and it doesn't work on the ps3.

I only have a switch, no router. i bought a netgear FS605 switch that i connected to my modem, PC, and ps3. my PC could access the internet but my ps3 cannot. The switch has plug-and-play capabilities. my playstation 3 could not auto detect the connect. i manually put in my IP and DNS. it detects my IP succesfully but once it is checking for internet connection it fails and it says DNS error. i already put in the values in the manual setup with the numbers i get in the command prompt: ipconfig /all. I type all of the values exactly as it says on my computer but still no luck.
Please help me out with this problem i would great appreciate it.

    What is the model number on your modem?

    a router may not be necessary some modems have built in router functionality.

Yes you must by a router my friend.

The problem is your ISP will not give out extra Ip addresses for additional clients. The router will have a dhcp server built in and that will fix the problems at hand.

My Netgear FS605 stopped working. All lights flashing about 1x/sec. No change in cabling or configuration in past year. Upstream Linksys N wireless router working fine. Tried disconnectring ethernet...


Are you able to ping between systems connected to the same Netgear FS605 switch and in same VLAN.
I suspect either switch port or Uplink cable issue.
Please try changing a new cable and if no improvement then please try with a different switch port.

Problem connecting to internet while pc and ps3 are hooked simultaneously


I think the broadband connection you are using is not enabled for NAT ( Network Address Translation).
This is required to give internet access to more than one system through a single internet connection.

If NAT is not enabled or supported by your broadband router then you cant access internet through more than one system simultaneously.

Wont connect and software cd


Hello,

Here is a link to Netgear's support page for that product. Depending on the version you have their are documents pertaining to how to set up your switch. Example of documentation here. I think the issue you are having is that you don't have it configured correctly for your network. Follow the instructions and you should be up and running in no time. Their isnt software for this device, you just have to access the device and change a few settings.

Good luck,
Armymason

Router failed numerous times so i bought a netgear fs605 5 port switch to hard wire in a ps3 and my dell lap top. can only run one or the other. not both at the same time. what is wrong?


The FS605 is a switch, not a router. You can only run one device at at time because you only have one ip address. You need a router between the internet and your switch if you want to use more than one device at a time.

To connect a router or a dsl modem to a switch you either have to use port 4 or use a utp crossover cable. As you can see on the Netgear FS605 the modem/router has to be connected to port 4.

The correct way to connect these devices is:

Modem > Router > Switch > Computers

Wont Switch on


Test power in its adapter up to the plug in end of the switch adapter. The power adapters are usually the culprit. If there's power in the wall plug, that leaves you with the switch itself. It's either bad inside or should come on.

Only 1 computer getting internet with FS605


Sorry to say, you have the wrong part. Whoever told you you could hook it up to both your PCs and your cable modem didn't know what they were talking about.

Your FS605 is just a switch; hooked up directly to a cable modem, you will only see one IP address as that's all the cable modem will allocate.

What you need is a router, to allocate multiple local IP addresses and share the connection up to the cable modem.

Linksys BEFSR41 routers are ridiculously cheap these days and highly reliable, or if you like Netgear, you'll need the RP614.
