SOURCE: Netgear JGS524 appears to be dead...

This is an un-mamaged switch, so it is very difficult to get any kind of diagnostic information out of it. Some times, this may mean that the switch is on and active, but at those times, there is some times a mode button to switch through the different types of indicators on the switch. This switch doesn't even have that. There is almost no documentation on this device. The only thing I could find was this install guide, and it doesn't mention anything about the lights indicating some type of diagnostic code. If you connect two machines to the switch, and both these machines have Static IP addresses (do not use DHCP), can they ping each other? If the can, then I say the switch is fine and its just a cosmetic problem. If they cannot, then I am afraid you will have to return this one as well.

Sorry to say, you have the wrong part. Whoever told you you could hook it up to both your PCs and your cable modem didn't know what they were talking about.

Your FS605 is just a switch; hooked up directly to a cable modem, you will only see one IP address as that's all the cable modem will allocate.

What you need is a router, to allocate multiple local IP addresses and share the connection up to the cable modem.

Linksys BEFSR41 routers are ridiculously cheap these days and highly reliable, or if you like Netgear, you'll need the RP614.

Yes you must by a router my friend.

The problem is your ISP will not give out extra Ip addresses for additional clients. The router will have a dhcp server built in and that will fix the problems at hand.

SOURCE: Netgear JFS524 network cable unplugged error on all pc'c

Hi Ewan,

How is the modem/router connected to the switch?

Have you tried changing the patch cable that connects them together, or the port they are connected from?

When troubleshooting this type of issue, it is always best to check each layer of connectivity (1-Physical,2-Data Link, 3-Network Addressing, etc.) in order from bottom to top, due to each layer being dependent on the layers before it.

DNS is important but wont be available until you have a physical connection and a IP address.

If you can achieve a stable connection while the PC is connected directly to the modem/router, but not via the switch then work your way from one end of the link between the working component (in this case the modem/router) to the other (PC) - testing each part along the link.

If the switch is faulty after you have performed some testing, it is best to change it out and test with another switch (if avalible), before purchasing or sending the JFS524 away for repair (if still under warranty).

Let us know how you go with the testing.

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.

Wont connect and software cd


To connect a router or a dsl modem to a switch you either have to use port 4 or use a utp crossover cable. As you can see on the Netgear FS605 the modem/router has to be connected to port 4.

The correct way to connect these devices is:

Modem > Router > Switch > Computers

Is my FS605 broken


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.
