Repotec RP-PE16T/8 PoE Switch. Which default IP address?

This is a rack mount switch from 2006 with 8 standard and 8 PoE Fast Ethernet ports, 16 in total.
It should be able to manage with a built-in Web-SMART tool.

On the rear is a reset switch. When pushed, which IP address will the switch have?

I tried all the usual suspects (192.168.1.1, .100, .254, etc.) but it remains silent.

Could I connect it to a WinXP laptop and run a tool to find out?

The switch runs fine as is, though unmanaged of course.

Based on  the attached manual, this switch is an unmanaged switch, so no ip address.

Thanks both of you, but that's a trap. The PE16T8A is - I think - a "thrinked" version of PE16T8 in a plastic case where the management has been removed.

I have binged/googled all over but cannot find any reference to the PE16T8.

I think one version is just in a different case, for aesthetic reasons.

The managed version is a different product...

But be aware that it is an old switch not marketed any more.

I cannot tell for sure if it is managed. Perhaps not. If so, however, I find it very strange that it clearly is labelled on the front: Web-SMART. The -A model doesn't carry that label.

And if unmanaged, what purpose fills a reset button?

Thanks for tip regarding the mac address and arp. I didn't know that command was at hand in Windows.

No problem. Usually a managed switch would have some type of console interface also, so you can access it out of band. Does this switch have one? As for the reset button, that is a good question, maybe to flush any tables on the device, or it may very well be a managed switch after all.
No, that was my first though - serial connector. But no.
I'm leaving office now, but will continue tomorrow. Or order a new switch ...
