My network looks like this:
Netgear CM1200 --> Edgerouter4 (DHCP server is here) --> TP-Link T1600G-28PS --> access points and end devices
I am trying to add an unmanaged switch to the T1600G-28PS "smart switch" but its not working. I plug things in and no lights on the unmanaged switch (I've tried 2 diff devices). But if I connect an end device like my garage opener that connects and starts to work. I've tested the cat 6 cable and its good. I've tested both unmanaged switches and they are ok. I'm stuck and thinking its maybe a setting in the TP-Link T1600G-28PS?
The two unmanaged switches I am trying to connect are
The edgrouter has a basic config that was setup with a wizard. I did not set any extra VLANs or anything fancy.
I turned off PoE on the 2 ports i'm using but that did not give me different results.
I am new to networking and any help or advice will be appreciated!!
