I'm new to the world of managed switches but I wanted to transition over as I'd like to utilize Link Aggregation. Both for WAN ports on the switch and for some high network utilization hardware like my DS920+ NAS system.
I found out how to set the LAG groups in the sytem configuration webpage under switching... I created LAG 1 as Ports 1 and 2... seemed simple.
But when I connected both of those ports to my router, I was no longer able to login via the web portal or the easy smart config utility on my laptop. The indicator lights on both of the ports are also flashing in unison. Can someone please tell me what I did wrong? Will i also need to repeat the same step for the LAG 2 (ports 3 and 4) which I will use for my NAS?
Apprecaite any help in getting these ports to not trip over each other's feet.
