Patch panel query
I've just installed a new patch panel, everythings fine. I've used my Fluke kit to establish that ALL connections are correct. But when I connect a particular connection to the switch, it does nothing. I've checked the connection from both ends, fine. I've used different patch leads to check the connection, fine. The outlet on the patch panel is fine as my kit indicates it. It's just when I connect it to the switch, no lights. Never had this before

Perhaps the switch doesn't work? Have you tried a different switch/port?

Yep! Never seen this, bizarre

Is there someone active on both ends of the cabling and has power going to it?, I've forgotten to make sure the computer had power a couple of times and had the switch light stay off for me.

How long is the cable run, not longer than 100m by any chance.

For some very strange reason, it's working now. I'll be keeping an eye on this as it makes NO sense whatsoever. Many thanks for your replies.

I come across something similar, we tested a new cable run (network point to patch panel) and everything checked out fine, but plugging in any device and there's be no activity. It turned out to be a fault network (RJ45) socket.
