Question about 3Com SuperStack 3 4228G 24-Port Ethernet Switch (0662705446844)

1 Answer

3Com 3c17304 port 25 up not connecting

The port flashes orange and green even without a cable plugged into it. When we do connect an ethernet cable, we cannot get through the port to the router. We have trouble shot by taking that cable and putting it in one of the other 10/100 ports. This does slow us down. Any help is greatly appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read this.

    We have the line to the router in port 1 of the switch. 25 connected the switches from the other side of the building. I have that now in port 3. When I disconnect any other cable the lights quit flashing. Port 25 flashes all the time. Why is that and can I fix it or does the switch need replaced?

  • Rick Spotanski Feb 27, 2009

    Thanks. I called 3Com and set up a Rma to get it replaced. Thanks again.

    Can you explain your set up. And what port is the router plugged into?

Well I think the port is bad, I had one that did something similar to your problem. I got on the 3Com website and submitted and RMA request and they upgraded my with the newest model. But if yours is still in stock they will replace with the same type. That is what I would do. Hope this helps ya.

I am trying to set up a switch between my PS3 and my PC. I have an external DSL modem. I purchased a 5 port switch(Rosewill RC405-x) but no luck. Can I use an ethernet splitter instead?


You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together.
Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch.
Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port.
You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports.
If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.

I also have the DGS-1008D 8-port switch and it connects fine at gigabit speeds between my 5 PC's - I would check the cabling again, as mine was plug and play. As soon as it was hooked up and switched on, I got the green light for the gigabit connection - my 100mb router (also D-Link) connects with an orange light, as it cannot achieve gigabit speed.


Hi there and thanx for the reply.
I have connected PC's with the gigabit cards to the point where the one machine connects at 1Gig. All machines connect at 1 Gig at that specific point. So it is either the cables itself or the connection in the jack itself problem

Base from the description of your problem its only showing that some of the port on of your Ethernet switch is already getting bad and this usually happen on switch like this and eventually all port will go bad and will lead to the replacement of the device. With this type of problem you can first try to adjust the speed of your network card to 10 half duplex and check if that will correct the connectivity problem and if it does its just a sign that sooner or later the device is already getting bad and since its only a switch there's no firmware that we can load to it or even a reset button to bring the device back to its default settings.

Make sure your not using a crossover through cable. Also make sure your not connecting the cable into the internet port, which is usually the first or last port.
  • A straight-thru cable has identical ends.
  • A crossover cable has different ends.
  • A straight-thru is used as a patch cord in Ethernet connections.
  • A crossover is used to connect two Ethernet devices without a hub or for connecting two hubs.
  • A crossover has one end with the Orange set of wires switched with the Green set.

The primary connection method for those switches would be serial connection. In the box there should have been a DB9 serial to RJ45 cable. Hyperterminal default settings would allow you to connect.
