TP link 5 port switch not forwarding frames when not directly connected to router.
Hello! My PC is not getting IP address, Its getting IP address only when switch is directly connected to router. I am not getting IP address when switch is not directly(indirectly) connected to router.
PC(bedroom ethernet) ---> TP Link switch is in main cabinet (laundry room) ------> Direct cable from switch to router( living room)
PC(bedroom ethernet) ---> TP Link switch is in main cabinet (laundry room) ------> Kitchen ethernet connected on switch ( Cable running from kitchen to cabinet) ----> Cable running from kitchen jack to router. Not sure why switch is not able to forward frames in this scenario? There is connectivity from router to kitchen and kitchen to switch
Cable lights are up, I could see PC is sending DHCP packets out but no response coming back. Please help
I dont want to run a long cable from my main cabinet to living room, So decided to run short cable from router to kitchen ethernet jack and Kitchen ethernet jack has running cable to switch.
