The other day I just picked up a nice HP 2650 from a local recycler. They put stuff back together to resell after businesses upgrade.
Anyways, I set the new switch up last night to replace the 2 small 8 port d-link switches I had duct taped together. It is surprisingly quiet, making me wonder if its not booting correctly and its getting too hot. I was expecting it to be louder?
But now, its just sitting with all the lights on like I had just plugged it in for the first time. Occasionally all the lights turn off or one of the status lights does. I’m not opposed to taking it back, but I’d rather not what with this having gigabit and SPI built in and all (tho only 2 ports sadly).
It’d kinda suck if this thing is DOA, but I can keep looking for another one I guess. Please help though!
