Re: LAN Printer problem

Try setting the speed and duplex to auto and see if it comes up ,my guess is auto mdix was correcting some wiring anomalie in your old setup. Another quick way to check is to plug a laptop into to the port , try with your current setup , then change the speed and duplex to auto and see if the link comes up and that will confirm it .
