No Ethernet Avaya 9608

No Ethernet Avaya 9608

(OP)
Hello Guys,
I keep getting "No Ethernet" error message on one of the 9608 IP Phones.
I plugged it into the switch and it worked fine. However, the message is displayed when I plug the phone into any other port from my office.
I have tried using different ethernet cables.

What could be causing this?

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Crap cabling, if it works on the switch direct and all you're doing is passing it through your cabling, then that's all it can be smile

Hmm
I can assure you it's not the cabling.

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Hmmm what else is changing? smile

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Usually cheap sockets don't fit well with booted patch leads/cables smile

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Absolutely nothing.

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Then, if all that's changing is the cabling in-between, what else can it be.....nothing smile

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

I would make sure pins 1,2 and 3,6 are correctly mapped/connected, that's what carry the data Tx and Rx smile

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Is half the router POE and the other half not?

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Then they wouldn't power up to be able to display anything, let alone "No Ethernet", think you mean switch too smile

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

have you tried another phone

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

Just had a similar issue at an install I did in Dusseldorf on Monday, set the phones up directly in the switch in the comms room then moved them to their respective locations and had issues with a couple of points, they would get ower and sometimes work, but would then drop off and say discover, a reboot would get them saying No ethernet, 10Mb connectivity or just count up DHCP. I swapped the cable at the phone end, swapped the cable at the switch end and even tried different phones and got a completely mixed bag of results. After a bit I realised that when I plugged the cable into the back of the phone it was a little loose and could be moved a couple of mm back and forth, when I pushed it all the way in the phone worked perfectly, when I pulled it back that mm or 2 it gave me the odd errors again. I think it was the cables they were using for the phone end as used different cables in the install in Berlin yesterday and no issues at all.

@amriddle01
Yes, the pin out of the cable is correct and is mapped right.

@Telecomboy
It's a 48-port PoE switch. All PoE.

@joe2938
Yes I have plugged in other phones to the same user port, and they all work just fine.

@Pepp77
I have tried many cables. I don't think it's coming from there in this case.

The message indicates the phone is getting power but cannot see any data connection to the phone

Then you have a faulty phone, replace it


Do things on the cheap & it will cost you dear

RE: No Ethernet Avaya 9608

I have found the 96XX Ports to be very fragile. Using patch cords without the anti-snag boots seem to help.
