wifi goes down when connect router to switch
« 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!

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

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 ).
