We Have Eleven Netgear GSM7224 V1 switches connected by Fiber.
The unit will be working fine then all of a sudden the web and telnet interfaces go down. When this happens you CAN ping it but you CAN NOT access the web interface, telnet into it or even connect to the CLI interface until you reboot the switch. If a machine on one of the ports tries to boot up it will not have access to the network. I do see the following error in the message log after the reboot. Rcvd BPDU in Discard State on port 24 Which is the port that connects to the next switch. I have tried the newest software level and the previous. Both still result in the same problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated
