Patrik,
there are problems with some WRAP devices (latest branch, manufactered in
taiwan). Please see more details about this issue here:

In short, you need to send WRAP for a replacement or do the hardware fix by
yourself.

go wireless,

Subject: [m0n0wall] Problems with switch


I have searched the list archive but havent find a solution. Im running
m0n0wall on a WRAP and it works good if I connect it directly to a PC with a
cross-over cable. My switch is a DLINK DES-1005D. Datasheet here:
http://213.216.192.242/products/des-1005d.pdf Note that the image in the pdf
is not correct. It looks different.
If I connect m0n0wall to the switch the led on the switch which corresponds
to m0n0wall starts flicker repeatadly although no action is shown on the led
on the WRAP, just the one saying that the link is up, but the other led is
turned off.

The led on the switch flickers even if I only have m0n0wall connected to the
switch alone. I have tried with different length of the cables, as Manuel
suggested in an earlier thread. It seems it does work with both cross-cable
and straight from m0n0 to switch as the led is turned on in both cases,
maybe my switch as the capability to know which pair to use.
The switch does work and is not broken!
