GS605 Unmanaged Switch not working


GS605 Unmanaged Switch not working

So, I have an Arris NVG599 router (i know, im sorry) and I was getting a red light from the WiFi router when I plugged the 5 port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet switch into an ethernet plug. I dont know if this happens on other routers too, but I was wondering if it is only compatible with Netgear routers.

Re: GS605 Unmanaged Switch not working

There shouldn't be any compatiblity issues. 

But it could be a cable/port issue. 

Have you tried different ports on the router/switch and a different cable?

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers about your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:
