I have just got a 5 port gigabit network switch. It has a cable to the router, leaving 4 other ports to connect devices to. The original network cable I had from the router to the computer worked fine plugged into the router. But when connected to the switch there are no lights or connection.
I have tried the obvious and connected it with a different patch cable at it works fine.
Is there any reason a cable would work connected to the router but not a switch???
see next post for diagram of connection.
Thanks in advance
