Howdy H/A. I'm having some trouble with my home ethernet. Just moved into a new house and I've got ethernet ports in every room that lead up to a central hub in the master bedroom:
On the left I have the modem and router set up in the living room. I have an ethernet line running from the router to the wall, which ends up in the master bedroom hub. I used a tester to check the line when the router is connected vs disconnected, there's definitely some signal coming through:
However my switch doesn't recognize the incoming connection, my laptop plugged into that ethernet port isn't able to connect to the router IP. Basically the line is running but none of my equipment will recognize it.
My router is a TP-Link AC1200
and my switch is a TP-Link 8-Port GB Unmanaged Switch
. Am I missing some kind of settings on the router, or backend fiddling I have to do? Is it a case of bad wiring? I tried setting up the modem+router in the hub and running it out from there, had the same kind of luck.
Any troubleshooting ideas?
