Catalyst Express 500POE and their Linksys Cousin

Have one Catalyst Express POE 24 port in a small office with two Linksys switches attached.
- model EZXS55W, 5 port 10/100 switch
- model SD208, 8 port 10/100 switch
Anytime either of these switches are plugged in to the Catalyst Express, it will only give out one IP. Get no connectivity on the other 4 ports. When we use a Cisco 2950 everything works fine.
Have tried:
-different cables
-different ports
-using smart switch feature on the Catalyst Express (telling it x port is switch)
No dice. Anyone?

Set the smartport role on the Express to none and be sure to disable port security on that port

Irmoore,

Checking...not exactly an option, however, setting all ports to "other" which give unlimited MAC connections. Options for turning security off are greyed out in CNA and non-existant via the web interface.
