There are two Troubleshooting on Netgear PoE Switch GS108P:


Power light is not lit


The switch has no power. Make sure that:

• The power cord is properly connected to the switch.
• The power adapter is properly connected to a functioning power outlet. If it is in a power strip, make sure the power strip is turned on. If the socket is controlled by a light switch, make sure the switch is in the on position.
• You are using the NETGEAR power adapter supplied with your switch.


Port number light is not lit for a connected device, or stays on continuously


There is a hardware connection problem.

• Make sure the cable connectors are securely plugged in at the switch and the device.
• Make sure the connected device is turned on.
• If the Ethernet cable is connected to a NIC or other Ethernet adapter, make sure the card or adapter is installed correctly and is working.
• Make sure the cable is less than 328 feet (100 meters).

1. Place the Netgear switch on a flat surface or hook onto the screws.

2. For each device, insert one end of an Ethernet cable into the port in the device and insert the other end into one of the Ethernet ports on the switch.

3.Note: If you have more than 8 devices to connect to this switch, you must connect them to a hub or other switch and then connect that hub or switch to this switch.

GS108P and Firewall


3. Connect the power adapter’s cord into the back of the Netgear switch and then plug the adapter into a power source (such as a wall socket or power strip).The Power light should light up. Each RJ-45 jack has 2 LEDs. For each jack that is connected to a powered device, the Link LED is lit, and it flashes when activity occurs. If the connection is 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, one LED lights up. If the connection is 1000 Mbps, both LEDs light up. If any light doesn’t operate as indicated, go to the Troubleshooting section.

4. Connect Power Devices (PDs) to Port 1 – Port 4 of Netgear GS108P. These PoE ports will automatically activate when a compatible device is connected. The GS108P will not provide power to PD devices that are not compatible with the PoE Standard IEEE 802.3af. This feature allows users to freely and safely mix legacy and standards-based PoE devices on their network without concern for damaging equipment. (Refer to “PoE Examples”.)

5. First Insertion First Service. First Insertion PD Port will get higher priority. Last Insertion PD Port will get lowest priority. When an Over Power Budget situation happens, Last Insertion PD Port will be disconnected. If a port is stopped to supply power, this port will lose its original port priority and change to lowest priority when it gets power again.

6. Verify the following:

• The Power LED is lit.
• The corresponding port number for each connected and powered device should light when linked (connected), and flash when activity occurs.

If any light doesn’t operate as indicated, see the Troubleshooting section.

DC Power Jack: Power is supplied through an external DC power adapter. Check the technical specification section for information about the DC power input voltage.

Be sure to connect the 48V/1.25A power adapter DC plug to the DC jack of the GS108P before plugging the power cord to AC power outlet.

Grounding Connection: A grounding strap location is provided to enable you to ground the case to Earth.

1.How do I connect Netgear GS108P to another PoE switch?

It is recommended to use a non-PoE port of the Netgear GS108P (port 5,6,7,8) to connect to another PoE switch.

2.What is the power budget per PoE port?

GS108P supplies maximum 15.4W per PoE port.

3.What is the total power budget of GS108P?

GS108P has 4 PoE ports and they share total 50W of power budget.

4.What is the function of the PoE MAX (Amber LED)?

When Netgear GS108P total power budget remains less than 7W, the PoE MAX LED will lit up to indicate it has less than 7W of power budget left.

5.If the power budget is overdrawn, which port will receive power?

The Netgear GS108P use a “First Insertion First Serve” policy. It meas that the first inserted PD (Powered Device) will get highest priority. When an over power budget situation occurred, the lowest priority port will be disconnected. If a port is stopped to supply power, this port will lose its original port priority and change to lowest priority when it gets power again.

Netgear MS2110 Stora Media Center Troubleshooting,You can check the following:

• Check the status lights to verify correct operation. When powered on, the Stora blue power button light will be on. Green status lights labeled 1 and 2 indicate which hard drive is installed and detected. If the drive light is amber, turn off the Stora unti, and then turn it on again.

Turning off Your Stora correctly. To turn off your Stora, press the power button until the blue light blinks (about 5 seconds).

Verify Ethernet connection. Make sure that your Ethernet cable is securely connected to your router and to the Stora, and the LEDs on the back of the Stora are lit.

Turn off your Firewall. Make sure that the computer accessing the Stora does not have its firewall turned on. Please see the User Manual on the Resource CD for information on turning off the firewall.

Parental controls are features which may be included in digital television services, computer and video games, mobile phones and computer software. Parental controls fall into roughly four categories, content filters, which limit access to age appropriate content, usage controls, which constrain the usage of these devices such as placing time-limits on usage or forbidding certain types of usage, computer usage management tools, which allow parents to enforce learning time into child computing time, and monitoring , which can track location and activity when using the devices.

1.Parental controls on mobile phones

The increased use of mobile phones that include full featured internet browsers and downloadable applications has created a demand for parental controls on these mobile, smart handhelds. In November 2007, Verizon was the first carrier to offer age-appropriate content filters as well as the first to offer content-generic content filters recognizing that mobile phones were used to access all manner of content from movies and music to short-code programs and websites. In June 2009, on the iPhone OS version 3.0, Apple Computer was the first mobile device company to provide a built in mechanism on iPhone and iPod Touch devices to create age brackets for users that would block unwanted applications from being downloaded to the device. The introduction of a safe mobile web browser, called Surfbalance Kids browser for iPhone in June 2009, filled a need for parental web controls in the mobile phone arena.

2.Parental controls on the iPod Touch

There are also parental controls on the iPod Touch. Parents can block the icons for some apps, block access to the Internet or YouTube, and restrict the apps and movies that may be downloaded.

3.Commonly used methods to bypass parental controls

Several methods of bypassing parental controls are commonly used. If the filtering software is located locally within the computer, all Internet software can be easily bypassed by booting up the computer in question from alternative media or with an alternative operating system. However, if the computer’s BIOS is configured to disallow booting from removable media, and if changes to the BIOS are prohibited without proper authentication, then this approach is not available.
Another technique involves using external proxy servers or other servers. The user sends requests to the external server which retrieves content on the user’s behalf. Filtering software may then never be able to know which URLs the user is accessing, as all communications are with the one external server and filtering software never sees any communications with the web servers from which content really originated. To counter this, filtering software may also block access to popular proxies. Additionally, filtering systems which only permit access to a set of allowed URLs will not permit access anything outside this list, including proxy servers.

4.Criticisms of parental controls

An argument that is present is that: children will get access to questionable content, either through friends or by cracking the software. Parenting organizations feel, especially with older children and adolescents, that the best way to keep kids from viewing questionable content is by teaching kids about the hazards of viewing such content.

The Netgear WIRELESS ROUTER WNR1000 has Free Parental Controls.
