Replace capacitor C3 47uf@25V. It will fix that ADP20KP 90% of the time.

    Me too. Didn't have a 47uf @ 25V. Used 100uf @25V, worked a treat

Hi, My power supply has failed on FS516. See item 370123981061 on Ebay £35 or Offer. I have just offered £25 and was accepted + Free Carriage !. They are 2nd Hand but Tested. A few more available. Until it arrives I cannot say what it is like.

Netgear fs516 default ip address

switches do not normally have ip addresses as they are layer 2 network devices. They work on the MAC address of each network card attached to it to direct the network packets of data to the correct Network card.
Cisco Switches have an IP address but it is a virtual ip address used to remotely log into a Cisco Switch via IP but has nothing to do with the switching function however this is not a cisco switch.
Routers have IP addresses and use them to switch IP addressed packets to other Networks that have Routers connected to Switches.

Need to replace fans on netgear GSM7248 that is out of warranty. Where can I purchase them

I bought them from Digi-Key. Just google the part number on the fan for specs and match that up with the parts at digi-key. My GSM7248 has new fans, new low voltage caps, new heatsink retention clips and a new power supply. They should be selling these POS switches for $250.

How to connect netgear fs108 to cable modem

leeb..... switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem.... because NAT will not be enabled in cable there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

Well, I believe the product you have carries life time warranty with NETGEAR. Hence, you can get it replaced from NETGEAR. Please log a support case with netgear at
