ethernet switch issues


I just moved my 6400 to a shop in the backyard which is connected to the router via a 8 port switch. My radio no longer shows up. Can't remove the switch without bringing all other ethernet services down. From what I am reading, one option is to purchase a different switch? Can I just use smartlink to connect over the Internet? I'll be operating from the shop directly connected to the flexradio for some types of operations (CW).

    We can help diagnose this pretty quickly.

    Can you tell us the IP address of the radio and the IP address of the client you are trying to use? If you can tell us that first, we can help get to the root cause.

    This should not be a switch issue at all.

    Also, what is the Client you are trying to use? This could be as simple as the Firewall in your laptop blocking the communications.
