Here is the network setup:
SBS 2011 Std. handling DHCP,DNS for 8 win XP PC's / Router has DHCP disabled / Server connected to a unmanaged Netgear Prosafe 24 port switch / In one office I have an additional Netgear Prosafe 5 port to provide for a networked Laser Printer and two PC's
The problem is one of the PC's in the Office with the 5 port switch cannot get an IP address from the server when connected to the switch. I also swapped out switches and the problem remains
If I bypass the switch and connect directly to the PC it optains the Server addressing information and can access server Shares / Internet / Exchange.
With the cable connected to any port on the 5 port switch the Data light is flashing very fast.
Anyone have any experience with this?
