I am having trouble with my switch. I purchased a Cisco ASA of which I am very happy with but due to this, I had to make a compromise on the switch. We have a single 48 port netgear switch with no VLANs configured, no trunks, etc. It is an unmanaged "smart" switch. You can specify a few settings through a web interface and that is it. I have some PCs that suddenly are not working. They get the DHCP from the server but can do absolutely nothing else. If I plug my laptop directly into the port on the switch, I experience the same thing - DHCP settings come through, but I cannot do anything else (intranet or internet). However, some ports work, and when I plug into them, everything works fine.
It appears that my switch is going bad. it is a Netgear FS50T2 Smart Switch.
Any suggestions? I realize this is a Cisco board but I appreciate any advice. This hopefully will give me the leverage to get a Cisco switch and spend a little more seeing as how we have only had this switch for 5 months.
