I have a 7960 in my office with the ethernet line plugged into my computer, and it works fine, but...
...I tried plugging a 5-port Linksys unmanaged switch to the output, and it does not work. I took the 5-port unmanaged switch home, and it works fine.
Is there something "funny" about the ethernet line out of the phone that prevents sharing the line between 2 computers?
Help! We just moved into a new office, and resolving this would help a number of us (including those 2 to an office).
Note: I can't have the 5-port switch *before* the phone, because the phone gets power from the ethernet connection.
