I was asked to 'clean up' our wiring closet today and after moving network cables around, our Cisco 1700 series router and WIC-1DSU-T1 WAN interface card showed a yellow alarm and we now cannot get out of our network to the internet. Can anybody tell me if the router or card has failed or if I just screwed something up and need to somehow reset the router? Many thanks as I am now responsible for our connection loss and have no background in this.
If the xover doesnt work, try a straight through cable as previously suggested. It just depends on who the provider is whether they cross it for you at the SJ or not.
A straight through means make both ends look identical, same order of colors.
It is a straight cable.
