  1. I have been trying to get switch config'ed for my net
    first thing it caused was my isp gave me a new ip address
    got that fixed ,next thing I could not ping IP from outside of net
    got the latest firmware upgrade for router first flash failed
    cross fingers reset router to default 2nd attempt worked
    now I can ping from outside ,but the router and switch both show blinking lights when the modem shows no activity
    I have looked into all the log files looked at services and firewall info
    going crazy this thing is using 10 to 15 % cpu time before when idle only 0-2%
    and connection is slower now

    I have a adsl modem going to a linksys router going to a intel 8 port switch 550t
    when I first set it up lights only blinked when there was communication
    the intel manual says green: off 10mps solid 100mps ?
    after config of the ports to full duplex and fixing the router
    this is what started to happen
    I added tcpview software and cannot see why this is going on
    my firewall software only shows outside normal activity when I go to a web address
    the blinking starts from right to left with the router port connection goes to last port and cycles over again

    Try it without that Intel switch, i.e. PC --> Linksys router --> ADSL --> Internet
    The switch might be fux0red.
    Or try straight PC --> ADSL --> Internet

    just the thought of that scares me silly
    open up my pc to the web, the router has builtin firewall
    my mcaffe is't the greatest for stopping stuff
    I may try to open the port 80 for a time
    the switch is brand new ,put old d-link back on and it also does the same thing
