    x-posted to uk.telecom.broadband in the hope one of the clever people
    there will be able to help. And also to alt.comp.networking.routers,
    which is not a group I use but sounds hopeful!

    Try the console port of the switch, if it has one.

    It looks like the default address is 192.168.0.239, have you tried
    that? Are you also on the 192.168.0.x network? If not, you'll want to
    change your settings temporarily or you won't be able to see the
    switch.

    It's also possible that the switch's IP address has been changed, of
    course. One would hope that it's somewhere within the 192.168.x.x
    scope, so scanning in that range might find it. It could also be in
    the 10.x.x.x range, among others. If you reset the switch, it should
    go back to 192.168.0.239, in case that's an option.

    Also worth running a packet capture device, say Wireshark,
    and rebooting (turn it on) the switch. It seems that many devices
    now do a duplicate address check by ARPing for
    themselves before coming on-line. You might get the
    address from this or from
    other traffic. Not sure if I have every got this to work
    but it seems a good theory:-) Make sure that you use a port
    that is enabled.

    comp.dcom.lans.ethernet was not a bad place for this
    sort of thing but it is largely defunct (ethernet now just works:)
    and not strictly on topic exactly.

    Manual available here :-
    ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/FS...UserManual.pdf

    This refers to a Smartwizard Discovery program, presumably supplied on
    a CD with the new product.

    Might also be worth cross-posting in uk.comp.home-networking.

    Sorry I was not able to read the replies until today.

    I have tried the default addresses (including resetting the switch
    back to factory defaults).

    Looks like I do need that Discovery program. I don't have the CD since
    this was purchased used. But maybe the support page at netgear will
    have it. I'll keep trying.

    At least I found that there wasn't some simple step I was missing.
    Just knowing that is a great help.


    THANKS ALL.

    Re: Netgear router not picking up IP address.

    If you have any spare ports on the Netgear switch try the workstation on
    that, because I'm pretty sure piggybacking switches like that causes
    problems unless the have uplink ports designated for this, like Cisco 2950
    etc.
    Was the small switch working before you installed the Netgear switch? If so
    then check you've used a crossover cable to connect the 2 switches .. not
    straight thru.

    Cheers
