I have an old NETGEAR 16 Port Fast Ethernet Hub and, since lunch time today, I've been having network problems. All PCs connect direct to the internet via the hub.
The power LED on the front of the hub is flashing on and off. I've put a multimeter on the hub's power transformer and it seems to be putting out the correct amount of juice.
I've had a look inside the hub and I can not see any obvious burnt-out connections or components.
Does anybody know if the flashing green power light means the unit is knackered or it just an indication that it is not connected?
I have been able to access the internet again by plugging my PC ethernet cable direct into the back of the router i/o the hub.
Does it mean my hub is toast? I can't see that there is anything to really go wrong?
