I see: The IP address for this switch is obtained via DHCP by default.


The switch's system defaults are provided in the configuration file "Facoryt_Default_Config.cfg"  To reset the switch defaults, this file should be sset as the startup configuration file (page 3-18)

I find no reference mentioning a little push button on the box which is pretty typical.  If you can find one, then I'd do this:

1) press it in for 10 seconds ... then see with the switch connected to a DHCP server.

2) press it in for 30 seconds......

3) press it in for 30 seconds, keep holding it in while power is removed for 30 seconds, keep holding it in after power is resotred for 30 more seconds.
Now what?  Sometimes devices will want their firmware loaded at this point so you should be prepared to do that.
