Wants to reset 3824 3com switch via console
You forget the password for the "admin" user account and can no longer perform important management operations.
Use the password recovery method outlined below to define a new password for the "admin" user account:
- Access the Command Line Interface from the console port and enter the user name "recover" and password "recover" to place the Switch in password recovery mode. The Switch remains in password recovery mode for a maximum of 30 seconds, before it returns to the CLI login prompt.
You must use the console port to recover the passsword. If you attempt the recovery method using the network, the password will be rejected.
- Perform a hard reset on the Switch whilst it is in password recovery mode by switching it off, waiting a few seconds, and switching it on again.
You cannot use a soft reset operation to reset the password of the "admin" user account. This will end the password recovery procedure and return you to the CLI login prompt.
- When the Switch has rebooted following the hard reset enter a new password for the "admin" user account.

How to check if the switch is manage or unmanaged
Managed switches you can enter the default ip into a web browser, login and "manage" settings" this default IP will be vendor specific. Unmanaged you just plug in devices and that's about it. Managed switches you will pay a lot more for. Some lower end ones maybe several hundred dollars and up. If you are buying switches at Best Buy they are almost all unmanaged.

I have two 3com
I don't know anything about these units, nor do I have time to source any docs for you, but maybe you can try connecting a PC directly to the port your patch panel is connecting the the switch from, you can at least see if that port is working.
My next and only other suggestion is to invest in a "LAN cable tester". In my area, you can find cheap ones for U$20.
The tester will allow you to check connectivity between any two ports, and allows you to test both patch links and individual CAT5/6 cables.
