Replaced Switch in Enviornment After Failure


I was working on some new pages on my site and then my site went down. I had to troubleshoot the issue and found that it was my switch that comes into my entire environment from the WAN that then goes to my routers. I had to fire up Wireshark to see that the responses were being rejected until I bypassed the switch to each router. still the switch would act as if it was working and then finally after the last power recycle of switch not even the connectivity activity lights came back on.

While the switch was connected the routers started cycling to show a status of WAN disconnected so that was another clue. Oh well time I slapped another switch in its place and I’m fully back up once again. I’ll have to upgrade in that area once again which I was already looking at but wanted to look into other upgrades in the environment first.

Either way back up and serving web pages and streams once again!
