I am trying to uplink my Catalyst 3548XL to another switch and bought the WS-G5483 Cisco Transceiver.
I updated the IOS to:
IOS (tm) C3500XL Software (C3500XL-C3H2S-M), Version 12.0(5)WC17, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
Reloaded the switch and inserted the module into both slots. I tried known good ethernet cables, but still the switch isn't recognizing the device.
I cold booted the switch, checked for dust in the slots and still no luck. The lights for the modules light up when the switch is started but no link lights after it is done booting
From what I can tell, the transceiver doesn't seem to sit all the way back into the molex connector on the inside, which could be due to the curvature of the top of the transceiverr chassis?
Tough situation for the switch has no smartnet on it (end-of-life) and I can't seem to get any reseller or Cisco support on it...
Does anyone know of them not specifically testing with this exact model or possibly them redesigning the chassis of the GBIC?
