There are two options you can do to resolve this. The issue is the active x is not installed completely on the IE browser and needs to be installed completely. Go to tools/internet options/security/custom level. Once there scroll down to all the active x controls and plug-ins all the way to active x controls marked safe for scripting. Make sure all of these are enabled or prompted. Run this and restart the browser. After you do this it should allow you to the gui. The other option is to get the ie tab 2 for firefox and go to the switch in ie tab in firefox. I have not found any issues with the firefox ie tab. Once you install it, there will be a firefox symbol in the bottom right corner of the page, click that and it will turn to an ie tab. Once you have done that your in ie tab mode and this should allow you access to the gui.
I'm using Windows Server 2003 R2. Changing them to "ON" doesn't help either.
I was able to do what I needed by going into the super secret lite-ish version of IOS, which I found out about after searching around on here and google for a while. So I have given up trying to get into the web GUI. I called tech support and some guy told me that I probably needed to reset the switch to the factory default and reload the backup I (luckily) made just before I upgraded the firmware and started having this problem. Although it's possible that'll work, I didn't think it was likely, or worth the trouble, especially once I figured out how to get a better CLI.
To anyone that wants to know: to get into that lite IOS CLI, telnet into the switch and log on. Then hit CTRL-Z. At the new prompt, type lcli and hit enter. Log in again. Voila, it's kinda like IOS. The difference is that there's no running-memory, so you have to do a "sh start" to view the config. Also, instead of configure terminal, (conf t), you have to just type configure (or conf). There are a bunch of other things that you can't do because it's not a high end cisco switch, but you can figure it out along the way.
We're not going to be buying any more Linksys switches here. We need much better support, and we also need to actually be able to get into the config without having to rely on some guy hacking into the thing and posting about it on the web. For the times when we don't want to spend the cash on a high end Cisco switch, we're going with HP from now on.
What a JOKE of a solution.... You really are asking customers to do this? WOW!
I find this to be rather ridiculous to ask customers to do this. I should be able to pull up a fully functional GUI with IE or FF without installing additional plugins. I can do this with OTHER switches, routers and other devices no prob. I've never had an issue like this with a cisco/linksys product till now. Why is support and development lacking with this product?
The 'solution' is rather a bandaid to the issue. So everyones browser is fubar, while the switch is operating like normal? I don't think so...
I've set activeX to prompt or ask admin when it wants to run... I close the browser, reopen.. and guess what? THE SAME THING HAPPENS...
IE tabs in FF? Are you really serious asking customers to install IE tabs on FF. This uses the IE engine instead of FF... So why even try FF if you're not going to use it? What if its a dev machine and I DO NOT want extra software on it... Or FF is not even installed? What if I have no internet on the machine?
There must be another workaround, or a solution as the one suggested is NOT working.
So CISCO, Are you going to leave your customers out in the rain, or are you going to support the product and fix the issue instead of having customers apply bandaid to an issue on you're product?
Please don't force me to return this switch and buy something else.
P.S, I right click and get a menu to insert an image, or align or insert a table.. Uhh, remove that 'feature'... You have these options above, why remove the ability to check spelling on the fly with a right click? Ugh.
