    TL-SF1008D Switch showing a short

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I'm trying to hook up new cat5 cables to the switch, but when I test the cables, I'm getting a "short" indicator. I've tested the cables themselves, and they are fine. The problem occurs when I plug anything into the switch. I plugged a cable directly into the switch itself (any port) and the cable (any cable, so it's not the cable) shows a short. Why would it be doing that?

    The Rj-45 of TL-SF1008D only have 4 pin. Maybe this is the reason. but It will not influence you use this switch
