For some reason the network jack on my 4504 simply stopped working. Seems to be right after an update but I can't be sure. Does anyone out there know if SB or D&M might have disabled it remotely? If so why? Could it just have gone bad? This unit is only about 3 months old.


Here is my setup:


D-Link DI-614+ Router (Not using DHCP)

Compaq Proliant 800 w/ Windows 2000 Server (DHCP and DNS server)

3Com Office Connect 8 port Switch

D-Link AP900+ Access Point


The RTV has a wired connection directly to the AP900+ (configured as a client) and the AP connects to the router wirelessly. The Router and AP have static IP's and the AP has DHCP set up to the RTV. (This is outside the scope of the Win2k Server)


Even if I connect a cable from the RTV to the 3Com switch or Router I get no link light.

I'm assuming you've tried the obvious:


1. different cable.

2. re-setting the replay's network settings.

3. cold rebooting the replay.



And yes it is possible for NICs to go bad but usually it's a little more gradual than just never linking again.

Yes, I've tried several patch cables to the AP, as well as, ran two separate cables from the RTV directly to my switch. Since I am a network engineer I happen to have a cable tester and I've tested all cables and they are all fine.


I'm RMAing the system today.
