Title: wifi goes down when connect router to switch
Post by: mellis102 on December 29, 2017, 06:47:37 PM
I hope someone can help me here. I have a cable modem which is connected to my router. I then have a ethernet cable which connects my router to a switch in my house that connects various hardwired ethernet outlets throughout the house.

Everything was working fine for months since I set the system up. Now if I have the switch connected to the router, I have no access to the internet (either hardwired or wifi). I can't even connect to the router through wifi via the router's ip address. As soon as I disconnect the switch, the wifi works fine, but of course, none of my hardwired outlets work.

I have done powercycling the modem and router, reset the router to factory settings, have the latest firmware, etc. Nothing changes the situation.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations

What is the Mfr and model of this switch?

Swap LAN cables beween the router and switch and tried different ports?

you might be using a managed switch with default IP of 192.168.0.1. (e.g tplink 105e ).

Hopefully the poster will come back and let us know which model he's using.  ::)
