    On those switches avoid the last 2 ports then as they are dual personality ones, so put your uplinks into ports 21 and 22 etc leaving 23 and 24 empty as they are shared with the fibre ports that your not using to see if that helps. You also don't need cross over cables just straight ones.

    The cables are in port 22 on the smart switches to 41 and 43 on the managed. All of the switches purport to "know" what kind of cable is plugged in. However, as that may not be the case, how do I tell if I've got straight or cross-over patch leads?

    Look at the wires on the plug. If they are the same sequence at both ends, then they are straight, if they have some wires switched around then it is a cross over.

    if you set them to use DHCP do they get an IP address?

    No, even with DHCP set as they are uable (or unwilling) to connect to the DHCP server. The switches only see what is directly plugged in to them - well that's apart from the other switches of course.

    Do they have a static IP adress as a default factory setting? If so you may just have to connect via a laptop and fettle them manually to start with. I seem to remember having to do this to to some Netgear switches I had a while back.

    Thanks DB I've already done that, erm several times with no luck. Leaving it for now as I have more pressing things to do like rebuilding the master DC.

    HAve you upgraded the firmware on the switches yet? Should be 5.0.0.23 on the GS724T. I recently had the exact same problem connecting these to a GSM7352 stack, hte firmware upgrade was the most likely cuase of them to start working again.

    I haven't as yet. Do you by any chance have a URL to find the firmware please? I tend to get lost in the site whenever I go in there.

    Got firmware file from Netgear site. Plugged in to Smartswitch, upgraded the firmware, restarted switch. Result? Nothing, nada, zilch. Switch remains isolated. I must be definitely missing something but I haven't a clue what.
