Strange improbable Switch Issue EF3124

    Hi All,

    Here is one that is still making me scratch my head. I have a Linksys Etherfast 3124 switch that currently is giving me some problems. Basicly some ports appear to on be able to see certain other ports not all the ports.

    I have both a Server and a router attached to the switch for server and for the router. When I connect me laptop to port #1 of the switch I can ping both the server and the router without problems. When I connect to port #3, I can ping the server, but get no reply from the router. There are about 12 ports that have this issue. The remaining ports can ping both devices.

    Has anyone seen anything like this ? Does any one have any ideas as to what could cause this ? This is an unmanaged switch so there should not be any rules governing the ports. Also this switched worked fine untill about 3 days ago. I suspect a hardware problem, but still am confused as if a port is bad I would expect not being able to connect/ping anywhere, not just some for the ports.

    I already attempted to re-boot ALL of the devices on my network without any results.

    So all of my users can access the server, but most can not access the router.
