I'm trying to connect a Linksys 10/100 8-port workgroup switch (Model EZXS88W) to a Comtrend Wireless ADSL2+ Router (Model CT-536+) and its not working. Linksys support says the switch is just a pass through device and if its not working then I should just return it (before I waste the gas on another trip to the store I thought I'd try to get a second opinion :)
I've tried to connect the switch by connecting port 1 to one of the pc ports on the router and by connecting the uplink port on the switch to one of the pc ports on the router. Neither worked.
I did get an IP address conflict error on my computer. I have a static IP address b/c I'm running a server too...could that have something to do with it?
Any ideas much appreciated.
