Question about Linksys EtherFast EZXS88W 8Port Ethernet Switch (S931742)
The wireless completely stopped working. I cannot access the internet on my ipod or xbox. I have tried entering all of the WEP keys and I tried turning it off for 30 seconds. This problem has been going on for 3 days now.
Usually the wifi on a home grade switch or router only seems to last about 1 to maybe 2 years before dieing. The wifi drops more and more then stops and then eventually the wired will stop as well. There are other brands that last longer such as D-link and Netgear. Unfortunetly Linksys seems to be not that good and I wouldn't recommend it right now. The cost of a new router is pretty low and the odd sale makes them cheaper.
We replace a few hundred of these a year and have tried everything we and the company engineers could think of the revive them. Basically the only thing is to replace. You can sometimes get a few weeks or months out of them by doing a restore but even that only works for so long and then they will just die.
