Network Lockup and all indicator lights ON after popo
The Switch is loosing network connections to various clients. I have Mac, 2K, XP, Vista, and some printers connected to the switch.
IP config is set to DHCP.
It was working fine and then all of a sudden the network connectivity failed.
This is the second time my switch has frozen. The first time, I unplugged the box, waited for 5 minutes and plugged it back in and everything worked fine. This time, I did the same thing, but all indicator lights are ON and will not change to blinking or off (if port is unused).
I see no reset button and cannot access the brains of the switch due to the lockup.

Switch learns network MAC addresses
And controls the network packets to reduce broadcast packet traffic on your network !

<p>The below article would illustrate the steps to install the NETGEAR wireless adapter WG111v3 on MAC OS 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5.<br />
<p>Please ensure that you have installed the latest version of driver for the adapter from the below link on your MAC OS computer:<br />
<p><a href="http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2640">http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2640</a><br />
<p>After the installation of the driver please perform the below task:<br />
<p>1. Plug in the adapter.<br />
<p>2. Double click on the NETGEAR WLAN Client Utility in the desktop.<br />
<p>3. On the NETGEAR WLAN Client utility select the Available Network tab which will detect the wireless network, select your network and click Connect.<br />
<p>4. If you are connecting to a secured wireless network then you will be prompted for a Wireless Network Security Properties menu.<br />
<p>5. Type the network key WEP/WPA security and click OK.<br />
<p>6. Click on Link Status which shows the connection as connected.<br />
<p>7. Check for the IP address by clicking on the Apple icon and select System Preference.<br />
<p>8. Click on Networks and check the IP address.<br />
<p>You should have succesfully established the wireless network on your MAC.
You may come across connection problems when routers have Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) enabled and clients do not support it.
In Windows XP, Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) may mistake a WPS enabled router for a WPA-Radius protected one and warn you that there is no certificate to connect to it:
To work around this problem, you can either disable 802.1x authentication on the client or disable WPS on the router's.
802.1x on the client can be disabled in the properties of the wireless network. On the Authentication tab, untick the 802.1x Authentication option. Make sure that the correct encryption type is selected on the Association tab and that the WPA Pre-Shared Key or the WEP key is entered.
On Windows Vista things may even be worse. When you try to connect to a WPS enabled network, Vista may prompt you for a user name, password and domain name as if PEAP authentication were used. When you manually create the network profile specifying WPA2-PSK, AES and the Pre-shared Key, Vista may refuse to connect stating that the network profile does not match the actual configuration. The only work-around in this case is to disable WPS on the router.
To disable WPS on the router, go to the Wi-Fi Protected Setup. To learn how to disable WPS click here... At the top of the page, just set WPS to disabled and apply changes. You may need to delete the profile for the network on the client card before it can connect to the router.
First of all you have to make sure that your wireless network card is turned on...I believe the power switch is right below the edge of your left hand (right in the front of the laptop). the light should turn from orange to blue. When it does, it will either notify you of existing wireless network or you will have to manually have to search for network.
In Windows XP, simply right click the network icon [located in your bottom right corner of your screen] and click "View Wireless networks". In Windows Vista, left click on the wireless network icon [same location] and click connect or disconnect to now available wireless networks. In windows 7, the procedure is similar to the one in Windows Vista.
With secured networks, you will need the network key in order to connect, in others you will have to have your Media Access Control [MAC] address added to a MAC filter list in order to allow you to access the network...
What ever the case, it all depends on 1] Ensuring your wireless network card is turned on 2] Your computer is set to receive an IP address automatically...
I hope this was informative
Just connect to the network... Simply open the icon in the far bottom right hand corner ; with the 2 double little PC icon; WLAN icon . Right click >> Then "Connect to a Network" >> Look for your own wireless network >> then connect >> will ask for the WEP key - log it in >> Then Connect.
On your laptop, go into the “Manage Network Connections” and
delete your network. On you router, disable the SSID. In the “Manage Network Connection”
click the add connection button and enter the information about you network manually.
Vista will tell you that connecting to a network that doesn’t broadcast it’s
SSID is less secure and will ask you to verify. After that it will connect just
The reason its less secure is because your computer will ask
everything it can if its xyz network and someone with not-so-good intentions could
say that its xyz network and you would connect to a insecure network and all
the info that you pass on that network could be intercepted. Choose your poison
check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)
if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,
