    I have been successfully my surecom EP-808AX switch with the following
    - 1 adsl router modem (routing of 4 IP addresses) (zyxel p650 me)
    - 2 pcs (1 laptop, 1 desktop) with windows XP professional
    - 1 xbox

    now (since a few days) my lan is:
    - working fine with 2 connections (whatever device combination I use,
    so it's not xbox or modem related)
    - rarely working with 3 connections, and the time before all 3
    connections are up is longer (a few seconds at least)
    - apparently not anymore with 4 connections (or perhaps I do not wait
    long enough)

    by my lan is "not working", all the connection leds are extinct,
    except for some quick flashes where each cable is connected, about
    every second

    --> I've read about some power supply issues. I may have to check

    --> I've read about the MAC address learning capability, with a 5 min.
    timeout, so I tried to wait that time, but it didn't help

    If anyone has a clue about any other probable cause, please tell !

    maybe one port is reserved for use with the LAN when not using the WAN
    port.... Linksys 5-port switches do that when you assign an uplink port
