Orbi rbr50 with netgear switch GS608 switch

Just bought the Orbi with satellite, got it up and running ok however my switch has now stopped working.  the Orbi app can see the devices using the switch but there is no internet getting through to those devices.  the switch was working fine with my old router.

 

I have more wired devices than there are network ports on the orbi (satellite too far away to be useful wired)

 

Any suggestions please?  Do I need a new switch?

Be sure LAN cables are in working condition and of good quality. CAT6 is recommended. 

Power OFF the switch for 10 seconds then back ON.

Connect a couple of wired devices to the back of the RBR to see if they work there. If they do, possible your switch has gone bad.
