    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Hello

    Problem: Random Diconnecting Ethernet Devices.
    Infrastructure before Deco M5: Full working Network With TP-Link ROuter N750 (Internet Connection) and TP-Link 1043 (Wifi) and 2 X TP-Link TL-SG1008D Switch and Powerline adapters.
    Infrastructure with Deco M5: 2 X Deco M5 and 2 X TP-Link TL-SG1008D Switch

    Connected Devices with Problems: Bosch Smart Home Controller, HP850 G1 Notebook, HP820 G1 Notebook, Asus G75 Notebook, VU+ Solo Receiver, Desktop PC with Gigabyte Mainboard.

    Short Problem solving true: Power disconnection of Deco M5 Gateway device.
    Issue visible true fast blinking LED's on Switchport of not available device.
    Device with Problem cant find IP Adrdress over DHCP or getting network connection when setting manualy.

    Cross testet with:
    1. Reseting all DECO M5. (Problem still present)
    2. Changing the Deco Gateway device. (Problem still present)

    Testing connection types:
    Failing: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1008D Switch -> M5 -> TL-SG1008D Switch -> Device
    Failing: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1008D Switch -> TL-SG1008D Switch (with M5 Connected) -> Device
    Failing: Failing: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1005D Switch -> TL-SG1008D Switch -> Device
    Failing: Failing: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1008D Switch -> TL-SG1005D Switch -> Device
    Failing: Failing: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1008D Switch -> Device

    Working: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1005D Switch -> M5 -> Device
    Working: M5 Gateway -> TL-SG1005D Switch -> Device
    Working: M5 Gateway -> Device



    Working solution: Replacing TP-Link TL-SG1008D Switch with other Switch Model TP-Link TL-SG1005D

    Please Fix this strange Bug with this switch. Its not having this Bug then using old Router N750.

    The Decos seem to have problems with specific switches. They should really compile a list of known problematic switches. Or issue a fix.

    Avoid TL-SG1008D

    [h=2]TL-SG1008D is buggy as hell![/h]We have network ~ 2000 users and reccently buy 10 TL-SG1008D.
    If switch have ~ 3-4 vlans, it's take mac address from incoming port and send it back via incoming port in all vlans!
    So, without port secuirty on other switches it take mac from other clients and routers and network stop responding.

    Also, no mac address table to view.

    Avoid this model.

    tl-sg1008d doesn't support vlan so i think it will drop the vlan packets as it can't recognize the vlan tag?

    I use Ubiquiti Edgerouter X (setup as switch) with 3 Deco M5 and 5 devices connected to the switch and everything works fine...

    you would better contact tp-link support so they can troubleshoot as it is related to vlan.
