The CAT-6 wiring has been installed and streaming HDTV from the office computer to the HDTV & stereo is pretty much complete. But there’s a problem. Before I explain it, here’s a diagram of the setup. (via gliffy)
Now for the problem: The switch in the living room. The switch is there to connect the TV computer and the game consoles. If the Switch is connected the DSL modem constantly connects to the Net, works for a minute or two, then resets, killing the Net connection for the house. When I remove the switch and connect the TV computer directly, everything works fine and the DSL modem stops resetting itself.
The switch is a DLink DGS-2205 which has a “feature” which turns off the ports when they’re not being used but that should effect the DSL modem shouldn’t it? I’ve ordered a new Netgear switch without the green feature. just in case that’s the problem.
So any ideas? Need any further details? Just post a comment.
