I have a SRW2008 that has worked flawlessly for a few years. It is installed as the main switch in my LAN.
Recently I enabled jumbo frames, but regretted and disabled it again.
During the disable process, I was asked to click a webview reboot button to restart the switch, what unfortunately resulted in an infinite reboot loop.
I found a fix online, and did as described, logged in using serial connection and deleted a "config" file. Now the switch booted again.
However, not sure if it is a result of the reset, but now the switch drops the link to connected devices.
Typically within an hour, I can't get any traffic through the switch, at least on some ports. If I can still access it on my workstation port, I can simply open the webview, disable the port, on which, I want to communicate (out) and and re-enable it. Voila everything works again. Same result if I unplug the device on the outgoing port, and plug it in again. It just not acceptable to do this 10 times a day.
The device connected, that typically is "disconnected" is a ReadyNas NVX. I have seen the same behavior for my workstation-location 5 port switch that is also connected to the SRW2008. The link lights simply turns off on my 5 port switch, and I have to unplug it and re-plug to get a link again.
It could be a issue caused by timeouts due to no traffic, or could be related to the config reset, I have no idea.
What am I to do from here?
Maybe a long shot, and my calleagues may disagree.
I like the SRW2008 as well, I use a SRW2008P in my applications, and would hate to loose the use of it.
It might be interesting to perform a software upgrade even with the currently available release of code, just to refresh the operating system in flash memory.
Then perform a factory reset, to initialize registers and the configuration.
It might be a waste of time or it might not. My thoughts are that something got corrupted which can happen to flash memory.
Just a thought.
