G'day All,

I have a quick question.  My company has 2 x Netgear FS524S Switches and 1 x FS517T Switches and I believe the ports are failing on the FS524S and FS517T (these are linked together).  Is there anyway of finding if these ports are failing please???

Thank you

Download ethereal and check them. That's the best way. I've heard about a lot of issues with their switche ports going out.

Sorry about the delay, completely lost myself.  The problem was one port not being able to handle any connection.  This was found by simply testing the switch with a Cat5 Line Tester.  This confirmed that one was indeed out.  This Switch hasn't been replaced as of yet but will be in the future when more people join the company.  Thank yo ufor your help, I did download Ethereal and I'm helpy to say that it is doing great within our network.  Thanks again.
