I have a Linksys gigabit switch that I wanted to replace a 100Mb switch with. I can't get it to work. I unplug everything from the old switch and plug them into the new one, turn it on, the power light comes on but non of the port lights come on and nothing hooked to it is able to connect to the network.
Is it possible the switch is bad? I can't imagine there's that much to them that it would break. Is there something I need to do to get the network to "recognize" the switch?
Wow...that's weird. Never seen that happen. Just for humor's sake, did you reboot the systems while connected to the new switch? I wouldn't expect it to make a difference, but you never know.
Was there anything in the directions that you have to do before it works? I know I never read directions for things like that, so I just figured I'd ask. :)
If you bought it locally, I'd say take it back and get a new one. If the same thing happens, then it may be a support call to Linksys...

Actually, it's not new. I had used it before in a different location but didn't need it anymore because I got a new cable modem that had a switch integrated. The model # is SD2005. Yes, I've tried rebooting the equipment attached to it.
