Question about Linksys 5-Port Ethernet Switch (SD205-UK)
I have been having trouble getting on simple LANs using available switch ports...i have a standard toshiba satellite laptop, with an ethernet port...set to dhcp...should be as simple as plugging into an available linksys or netgear switch port and i should be on the LAN...i can jack into an available router port but not into the available switch ports...this has happened at 3 - 4 locations over the last 4 weeks...with dlink routers; linksys routers;netgear and linksys switch combinations but the symptoms seem to be the same...if these were configured in a similar way it would appear they have locked those ports down by only allowing valid MAC addresses...but that would not explain why i was able to get onto the available router port?...also i have tried a different laptop same config as mine but different mac address..same problem
