SG105E - Cannot connect directly after factory reset
I recently rebuilt my home network adding VLANs for various different devices. Unfortunately, after doing a hard reset, both of my SG105Es cannot be reached with a direct cable connection to a mac. I get Host is not reachable when attempting to ping the address. Network activity light does flash so I know I've got a physical connection.
I've assigned a manual IP address as:
So far I've tried:
A different Mac.
Several different Cat 6 cables.
Factory resetting both switches again.
Different IP addresses in the same subnet.
I'm not the best at networking but this should be a simple and straight forward procedure, so I know I must be missing something really obvious.
Any help would be much appreciated (especially by my wife and kids as I'm getting a little grumpy),
