Are you saying the network icon on the windows taskbar is saying you have limited connection?
the green LED light comes on and off.
Switch or computer side?
Some simple troubleshooting steps to do:
- Swap a cable on a PC that's showing limited connectivity with one that isn't. If the problem moves with the cable, you have a bad cable and need to replace it.
If the above doesn't change anything:
- Change the switch side plug on a computer showing limited connectivity with one that isn't. If the computer that was working properly now shows limited connectivity and the other one is good, the issue is the port on the switch.
If the above doesn't change anything, the issue has to be the NIC on the computer(s) in question. Check to verify they're "speed" setting is set to automatic. If it was, try forcing it to whatever the maximum capacity of the switch port/NIC is (ie: 100 Mbps, 1000 Mbps) and is set to "Full Duplex"
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
