Region : UnitedStates

Model : TL-SG2109WEB

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : 1.0

ISP :


This is for the TL-SG108E Easy Smart switch...

I have configured my IP static to 192.168.0.100 and SM: 255.255.255.0
I also tried various other IP's for testing and I can't get a connection to the switch.

The only cables connected are from the PC to the switch (cat 5e) brand new cable.
I also d/l the newest version of the software from tp-link site and that gives the same error, even from a different computer ...
I also tried the rest button on the front, same issue..

Any ideas for what can be done to get this working?

(This was brand new out of the box from Amazon)

I have the same Problem here in Germany.
TL-SG108E connected to IP-Network which I have changed to suit the TP-Link Network.

Router 192.168.0.80
Switch 192.168.0.1
PC 192.168.0.8

Ping wird ausgeführt für 192.168.0.1 mit 32 Bytes Daten:
Antwort von 192.168.0.1: Bytes=32 Zeit=10ms TTL=64
Antwort von 192.168.0.1: Bytes=32 Zeit=7ms TTL=64

Started the configuration Utility:
what ever I select I get the error "Timeout, no Response from Agent"

Switch bought via Amazon.de

cheers
Jens

I'll start my posts with this.
this is in no way professional advice, I'm struggling to setup my network myself, and can't find much help myself.
So I'm trying to fiddling with the settings and I'll try to interpret what happens from that as best as possible.
-------------------------------------------

I also had it happen at moments.
Did you set the switch IP to be given out by the DHCP? or manual?

! (What I think happened here)! Is that the switch somehow links to the modem (ISP) so then it is in the IP range & subnet of the modem.
and the tp-link utility does not recognizer the switch, or regognizes it, but can't access it because it is in a different range.

I reset the switch, linked it directly to a laptop, setup a manual IP, in range and subnet of my home network.

Hope it helps in any way.... if not , just disregard my nonsense.
