Had a really bizzare issue today which I thought someone could hopefully offer some insight on. 1 wall network socket to a brother printer = OK, continuous ping test = OK
Now, a new Kyocera smart series went in today, no link lights at all with the same and different cables to that exact same port. Tested with a laptop to the port = no link lights but yet when that brother printer is connected, it's back on with no hiccups.
WTF sequence of wires in the cabling would cause a singled out printer to recieve data but not anything else. Tried with crossover cables also with no success. I don't have the exact model of the printer but it's roughly 1 year old.
I tried changing port speed settings on the machine incase it wasn't auto detecting but nothing. Took a look at the settings on the brother but there was really nothing out of the ordinary that was switched on.
DHCP turned on and off with a static. Well settings on the Kyocera wasn't an issue because once plugged into a workstations port it was fine.
It has to be some kind of cabling setup but again, not sure why it would work for this one device.
