If the above recommendations do not work, try the same steps by using a
different computer. The switch might have some hardware problems if the
second computer also fails to establish a link, please contact technical
support for further assistance.
NOTE If you need help resolving a problem, visit the Cisco Small
Business Support Community at www.cisco.com/go/
smallbizsupport. For technical documentation and other links, see
Where to Go From Here, page 9.
Returning the Switch to the Factory Default
Settings
The Factory Default window allows network managers to reset the switch
to the factory defaults shipped with the switch. Restoring factory defaults
erases the configuration file. This should only be performed as a last
resort.
Restoring the factory defaults will erase all of your current configuration
settings. Before you restore the factory defaults, you can save a backup of
your current configuration settings from the Save Configuration window.
You can also restore the factory defaults of your switch by pressing and
holding the Reset button on the front of the switch for more than ten
seconds.
