Here are the release notes for the current firmware:

Page 3 contains directions for what you want to do. Page 2 contains the tftp directions; this is actually the easier way to do it but you'll have to get a TFTP server running first. has a free one you can download if you like.

As per your description ( All LEDs ON , No Console and No Web) indicates to switch didnt pass the POST and it is laying there, trying to recover.

Trying to Configure HP ProCurve 2524 24x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch as DHCP and creating a VLAN and connecting Linksys access points to that VLAN

This switch will not function as a DHCP server itself. You will need to have a DHCP server on the VLAN with the access points to give out IP's to the wireless users.

What does Alignment Rx error mean, when does it occur, what is the cause

Half/Full Duplex mismatch.
Bad cable, too long a cable
Bad network card in device
The occational error is not a problem. Constant errors on the same port indicate a problem with the cable or device on that port.

Hp 4108 vs 2524

It has to be either the cable or the transcievers. Do you have a spare pair you can try instead?

Don't forget that HP has free tech support at 866-myprocurve also. They are excellent.

Connecting to console

The proper way to console to a switch (at least as far as Cisco Catalyst Switches are concerned) is a rollover cable and a DB9 adapter... I then use HyperTerminal to connect..

What type of switch are you connecting to, and what kind of hardware are you using?

I always use Cisco for networking (Cisco is the king of switches and routers).. here is their step by step for connecting to one of their swtiches:

Fault light

Hi Tculver, I have ProCurve 2424, 2524 and 4000/8000s so I can?t really address your direct question but I may have some advice. I know lots of people who use ProCurve devices and don?t realize they have a lifetime warranty. You might want to consider just flashing them with the latest firmware and if it continues call HP support. If they can?t fix them over the phone they?ll send out replacements via next day deliver. Its one of the major reasons all of my switches are HPs. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
