Maestro Network Connection

Glenn Depp
Glenn Depp Member ✭✭

When I start up my 6600 and then later my Maestro I have to connect and disconnect my CAT cable multiple times to get a solid connection link between Maestro and Radio. I am running Cat8 Cable on all networking appliances. The radio and Maestro both connect into a gigabit switch which also provides internet connection. Whay does this occur every time I start them up? Any ideas. I know my cable is solid, the Switch is solid.

    There are some gigabit switches that are actually problematic with some network items. We have really noticed this with switches that have 'green power' features. See if you can turn that off on your switch.

    Gigabit switches do a lot of autonegotiation as well and that seems to cause hiccups.

    I have a TGXL that won't work at all on 1 type of Gig switch but works perfectly on another.

    tldr; I would try another make of switch.

    I had a problem with my gig switch.I repurposed a 100mb router, disabled the WiFi access, and use it as a switch. Works well, no more disconnects.

    Good info I will look into another switch whenever I go back out to the store.
