Cisco ESW 500 switch 8port poe

Recommended Posts

I installed this tiny switch for our client a few days ago, has poe. 8 port.


and it uses gui to do the management. too bad. it takes me half a day to figure out how to make a port trunk or access port. using tag and untag function.


on the way to figure it out, there is a smartport wizard function on the main page.

give u option to set the port on one go. the bad thing is I dont know what exactly this wizard does at the back end. I have the network setup. but on the same vlan. some ports just not able to get access to the other.


anyone has the similar exp? I think there may be security things going on with the "smartport wizard" function. but just not able to find out what it is.

Try following.


Go through the manual

or call the vendor if that is a local vendor

other wise in the future consider local companies as vendors

i would suggest your Netgear or micronet they are very good in SOHO
