Hi All, I have a Cisco / Linksys SRW 2016 switch, all was working fine. Powered off and powered back on a day later. Switch powered up and the system light lit. But non of the ports what had cables connected were active.... If you connect a network cable to the switch and then a laptop / pc .. The computer knows that there is a connection, but only gives a 169 address. Presumably because the switch cannot get to my dhcp ? I have tried connecting a serial cable to the switch top see if I can see any error, but when running Hyper Terminal I only get the white screen and can not see any POST etc. As far as I under stand it is a straight through cable, do I need a null modem cable to console onto the switch? Please help ! Thanks.
