Question about NetGear 24-Port (fsm726s&mr814) Networking Switch

Re: Connectivity Problems with Netgear FS726TP


I am having problems with our gigabit switch.
The network is incredibly slow at times. (ever since 5 days ago) and on quite a few occasions I have had to restart the server and the netgear switch.
Link lights from what I understand are supposed to stay on and not flash. Some of the lights on this switch flicker all day.
Also only the server is able to connect at the 1Gbps speed while everyone else is bumped down to 100mbps.
Does anyone know how to sort this out?
I have reset the switch, I have also restarted the Domain controller.

All lights on all connected ports on a netgear gs105 switch rapidly flashing constantly; data traffic seems slow or drops. Occurs regardless of how many devices connected or which ones.

1. A switch is a dumb device it just transfers data via the ports
2. if you are having slow or dropped data this possibly is due to bandwidth issue.
3. contact your internet service provider to check your speed and you line condition.
4. You didn't say if you were using a router, but if so this could what is call "collision"
5. some switch do this due to speed of the data throughput\.

Hi I would like o hook up a netgear prosafe 8port gigabit switch to my pc and run an ethernet cable which is allready hardwired to my sony bluray player so I can enjoy netflix

It would be much easier to use a simpler device, namely any Netgear 10/100 wireless router.

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> Router's WAN port

Router's LAN port #1 --> your desktop computer
Router's LAN port #2 --> your Sony player
Router's wireless adapter --> your iPod Touch's WiFi adapter

Since the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) is only delivering 5 to 25 Mbits/second to your router,
unless you are paying a _lot_ of money per month to your ISP,
there's no need to buy/use expensive "gigabit" equipment.

I have a netgear FS726TP and need to reset the forgotten password

You will need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.

Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings:

Link/ACT light bright but speed light off on 1 port what causes this

Normally, when the port light if off ... that wire is disconnected ... or the computer is completely off. Do you have connectivity on this link? I think not. If you do, (and this wold be very unlikely) the led is defective.

One computer connected the other limited or no connectivity

When using a router your IP is assigned to your Router. Then Your router assigns IP's to whatever is hooked up to it. Set everthing to detect automaticly. Might delet connection and create a new one.

Netgear fs726tp and cisco phones

that the 7940 and 60
phones from Cisco do not support the IEEE 802.3af Power Over Ethernet
they would work if you
simply reversed the polarity of 2 of the pairs of wire. i.e
by swapping 4 with 7, and 5 with 8 you could use a standard
POE injector to power the phone.
if you have a crimp tool and some cable laying around, you can give it
a whirl and it works. If you aren't familiar with making cable,
don't try this
Basically, you just wire one side of the cable as standard 568b
and then reverse 4 and 7, and 5 and 8 on the other side. Then,
simply plug your Cisco into a standard POE injector and Your phone works.
