When we built our house we had Cat6 run from all rooms into a central location. All the cable runs end up in a Levinton 24 port tray. I checked the back and all the cable runs are connected to various ports and labeled.
We have a shaw cable box (router) which is connected with a Cat6 to the Internet Wan Port on the Time Capsule. The time capsule throws my Wifi around the house.
The Time Capsule has three other internet ports which I'm using. One of them is connected directly into a 8 port DLink 10/100 Switch. Im then running several short runs of Cat 6 from the Dlink to the Levinton port tray.
Ive had this set up for a while and ONLY have been using the games room( call this port 1 on tray) which has an Xbox, Station and stand alone PC. SO I never noticed anything amiss.....Well, we have moved the PC into the kids bedroom and when I connected the ethernet to the wall... nothing.
Here's the head scratcher...at least for me. When looking at the DLink, the only blinking lights is the incoming signal and games room. All others are blank.
Even when I bypass the Dlink and TC and connect directly from Shaw Cable router into the levinton tray port...nothing happens. No signal is passed from router to the tray. Its as if the whole tray is dead with the exception of one port (games room)
My TC is set up for DHCP and NAT. Don't recall what my router is set to.
Any suggestions or questions would be super appreciated.
