Configuration Problem with SX 2024 Mega Switch

Configuration Problem with SX 2024 Mega Switch


Awhile ago i purchased a Used Xyplex Mega Switch 2 SX 2024,

Its a older 24p 10/100 Switch... Being Inexperienced with Non-Cisco Series hardware, i left everything as-is after the purchase.

SNMP ans management settings, everything. well after about 7 month of ownership, all of the ports suddenly stopped auto-sensing speeds and assigning all the ports except 24 to 10Mbps half-Duplex

Even when i tried to force 100Mbps full-duplex on the Nic's it would no longer sense the cable.

Now im at a loss, i have no idea how to configure it, it has a console port on the front(RS-232). but i dont know what cable i really need or even how to go about anything.


On a side note, i am quite Expierenced, and have a CCNA, but every thing i learned was emulation based(non real hardware platforms, and read from books) so i never really learned how to configure non-cisco Switches and Routers using a console cable.
