Hi experts i have a PC that i need to move to an area in the back of the office which already had a computer plugged into the switch,
when i connect the new computer to that location on that switch the network will detect (green light) as soon as the computer boots up into windows the network drops and remains inactive is there something that needs to be set on that computer in order for it to work?

You will have to test that port with a network tester, or try a laptop to see if you can get an IP.

Is the computer in question using a static IP address that is different than the scheme you have in place?

Example: Network scheme = 192.168.x.x and Static IP = 10.0.0.1 ??

Verify that the computer in question is set to DHCP and that there are no reservations within your DHCP server for that machine's MAC.
