Question about NetGear FS605 (FS605SE) Networking Switch

1 Answer

Is my FS605 broken

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.

My Netgear FS605 stopped working. All lights flashing about 1x/sec. No change in cabling or configuration in past year. Upstream Linksys N wireless router working fine. Tried disconnectring ethernet...


Are you able to ping between systems connected to the same Netgear FS605 switch and in same VLAN.
I suspect either switch port or Uplink cable issue.
Please try changing a new cable and if no improvement then please try with a different switch port.

Unplugged computer and moved into another room. Plugged back in and won't turn on.


First you bring back the PC in the original place - check whether you may run the PC here. If it runs that means there is a problem with the switch board (2nd one) or there is power source problem. If it does not run in the original position that means you are not connecting the PC correctly - please carefully connect and plug the all.

Will not load.


my old computer had a problem like this, i think the only way to fix a problem like this would be to reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system, which would delete everything on your hard drive...if you do not want to lose the files on your hard drive, you can hook up the hard drive to a different computer as a secondary drive and take the files you need off of it...then put the drive back in the original computer and reformat...after that just put back the files back on the original computer with a flash drive or an external hard drive...
cant think of another way to solve this

NO POWER AT ALL!


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.
