Question about NetGear FS605 (FS605SE) Networking Switch
Moved the computer and everything to a different room while redecoration a room, and then back to the original place. Now the switch does not seem to work. All the lights are on constantly - regardless of what i try.
What I try is to connect the swith to my internet plug in the wall, then I connect my computer which has a fixed IP-adr.
Both cables work fine when I connect the computer directly to the wall.
I am pretty sure that the switch used to blink when there was network activity on it. What order should I plug everythin in with? and is there any reset button on the switch?
The FS06 switch is probably defective and needs to be replaced...especially if the status of the lights does not change after you cycle the power on and off with no network cables plugged in. These switches are sensitive to overheating and can easily be damaged if used next to other warm network equipment or with air vents blocked by papers, etc.
Turn-on order is not critical in this scenario, but ideally you should plug in all network cables, turn on the switch first, then turn on the computer.
