Network switch drops connection daily
The connection in my home drops at least once a day.
I ended up replacing ALL devices and cables, but the problem persisted. I ran out of ideas to fix this problem. Our ISP says everything up to and including the modem is fine.
I'm now in this weird zone of trouble shooting, thinking it might be interference from the 2 DB's next to the network switch? They are both about 50-60 cm from the switch. I read the manual at a later stage and they do ward against placing the switch next to electromagnetic fields. But moving it will require cabling again so I wanted to gauge if this is worth doing.
My reasoning is due to the fact that only the routers after the network switch drop. Restarting the network switch is the ONLY way to get them to reconnect. However, the main router never drops the connection even though it's in the same location as the switch.
It's a fairly standard cable setup: modem > main router (EERO) > network switch (TL-SG1016D) > other routers (EERO). All cables are shielded CAT6.
I tried switching back to my older SG116 but the problem persisted.
Could it be that TP Link devices are just bad? I keep reading they have a high failure rate on forums.
Quote from the manual: "Locate the Switch far from strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors), vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight."
