Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
Where is the DHCP server actually LIVING? you mentioned: "Server is running DHCP" and that would kind of make sense....but normally it is the ROUTER/Gateway that handles the DHCP server.....but each network is different.
So....i would imagine that this NEW switch, just needs to be configured properly as a dumb (unmanaged) switch, and just plug and play.
But can you give me the exact make and model of the NEW switch please.
i saw your other post, and we will have to work out of this request.....due to duplication issues.
So, its a long shot.....but is it possible that this switch was BAD from the factory?
From what i can tell, the Blurex switch has a 3 way selector switch on the front of the switch, kind of at the bottom of the lights that indicate port status.
I cant tell from the documents what the selectore switch options are.
Can you tell me? I think that may have something to do with this.
If nothign works....you may have a DEAD switch.
