no network activity when conecting two switches
Posted on 2008-10-25
In my basement I have a Netgear Router WNDR300 with one port that connects to a Netgear 16-Port GS116 switch. In my guest/entertainment room the is a data port that connects to a patch panel in the basement and then connects to the 16-port switch. That data port (wall unit) connects directly to a Netgear GS608 swtich. Everything on that switch connects without any problems. However, there is one port with cat 6e cable that runs to another switch Netgear GS605 on the other side of the room. The port light on both switches are on, but anything connected to the GS605 switch seems to not be connected to my network eventhough all the lights are on the switch and the devices.
