|I am replacing a Netgear RP614 router with Netgear GS605 Switch.|
The RP614 is connected to a TWC Cable modem and provides internet access for 2 XP desktops and a Vista laptop.
When I replace the RP614 with the GS605, and power cycle the modem, only 1 PC has LAN connectivity. I plugged the modem into port 1 and I can plug this one PC into any of the other 4 ports and it works. The Vista laptop will not work in any port or on any cable, even on the cable that works for the one PC that has connectivity. I can only assume that other PC won't work with any other cable, but that's tougher to test. I do know that it's own cable will not work in any port.
As soon as I put the RP614 back in and power cycle the modem, all devices work fine and the laptop will work on any cable.
I assume that there is some setting on the laptop and other PC that is preventing them from working with the GS605.
Any ideas what that might be?
