And again the same

I tried to format flash memory and then copy firmware via xmodem. Firmware was downloaded from http://tfr.org/cisco-ios/catalysts/cat3500/ (this is the only founded source where these files are located, they are already EOL). But this procedure doesn't helps, errors remains the same. Do anyone have any ideas?

Re: Catalyst WC-3548XL-EN cyclic reboot during start

Hello,

 

to be blunt, I am afraid that your switch is toast. The error:

 

CPU Interface 0 SWITCH error in received packet on queue 3

 

indicates a hardware failure, which used to be resolved by an RMA. Since the switch is EOL/EOS, you are out of options. Keep in mind that these models have been introduced about 20 years ago, and that is how old yours could be...
