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.

WIRE AS U ARE USING WILL WORK FINE TILL 80- 85 METER. AND THERE IS DIFFERENT COLOR CODING EITHER U USE 10 METER OF WIRE OR 25 METER OF WIRE THERE IS A STANDARD COLOR CODE WHICH IS PROVIDED BY IEEE. I THINK THERE IS ANY PROBLEM IN YOUR SWITCH. IF YOUR WIRE IS OK AND PC ETHERNET CARD IS PERFECT THEN OBVIOUSLY ANY PROBLEM IS IN YOUR SWITCH. U CHECK IT PROPERLY EACH AND EVERY PORT. B'COZ SOMETIMES SOME PORTS PROBLEM CREATE HIS TYPE OF DISTRUCTION. GOOD LUCK PURUSHOTAM

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.

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.
