Hello I have a netgear print server ps101 it been working great for years then I switch out the switch that is attach to the server and now the print server will not pick up an IP address .... I know the cable is hot I have connected a computer to it and picks up an IP address without any problem ... I never really had one of these go bad on me and there is no reset button on the print server not sure what else I can do..... write it off as dead?

It could possibly be the duplex or the speed of the switch.

Does the port show that it has link when connecting the print server to the switch?

Is the new switch managed?
Try setting the port on the switch that the print server is connected to, to 100Mbps and also try Full or Half duplex settings.

Have you confirmed if the print server is working on another switch?

I found this on Netgear Forum..

http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=8641

finally got access to it...
Here is what I did.

I brought up one of those software protocol analyzers
to capture the Ethernet activity from the device
using a laptop and a cross-over cable to the Netgear PS101.

Then I plugged power to the PS101
and it initially sends out a few IP broadcasts
which the protocol analyzer captured -

The laptop was - 192.168.1.151

As it turned out, the PS101 was - 192.168.10.6

I just reset the laptop to something on that same IP segment
like - 192.168.10.100
and connected to the PS101 config screen via the browser.

I reset the PS101 to 192.168.1.180 and all is well.

The key was capturing those initial IP broadcasts
and looking at what the source IP address really was.

good luck -
