NetGear SmartSwitch question
Posted on 2013-11-15
I have a brand new GS108T smart switch from NetGear. When I connect my cable from my network, I get no activity lights and no computers behind the switch will pull an IP address. It's like the switch is blocking the DHCP trying to issue IPs to connected devices.
When I take the network cable out of the switch and plug it straight into my computer, my PC gets an IP from my DHCP server. Back into the switch...not IP and no activity light.
So, I know my cable is good, I know my DHCP server is working, so something in the switch config must be stopping the DHCP from passing thru.
Again, I've tested the cable and tried all of the ports. The cable out of the wall is good and it issues IPs to directly connected devices, but fails when connected to the switch.
Nothing in the switch config has been altered. It's right out of the box.
Ideas on what to turn off or turn on to make this work?
