3Com Baseline 2816 problem

3Com Baseline 2816 problem

3Com Baseline 2816 problem

I have this 3Com switch and was working fine before. But we had to disconnect everything because of renovation...I reconnected and now I have no network.

Here's configuration:

DSL modem with AT&T
Linksys Wireless Router
3Com Baseline 2816

I connect the CAT5 cable from the DSL modem to the Ethernet port of my Linksys wireless router.

I then run a CAT5 cable from port 1 of my Linksys router to the any port of the 3Com switch. I then connect each PC's to other ports on the 3Com Switch.

Anything I'm missing?

RE: 3Com Baseline 2816 problem

All the modular jacks on the Linksys are Ethernet. The one going to the DSL box should be labeled WAN or Internet. Do you have power? Did you plug the wall warts into an outlet? Are you getting any link indications on the occupied ports from the router, switch or DSL box?
