RB493AH, and broken ether1 port ?

Fri Jan 14, 2011 9:53 pm

Hi Folks ...

just wanted to know if someone experienced the same.
While being on travel, my home connection went down. When back - everything seemed OK - however internet connectivity was not possible. Apparently for the Router itself, everything was Ok, however a DSL Connection was not to be brought up.
Only when I moved the connection to another physical port - could the router dial out again (DSL).

Actually - it's the ether1 Port - Power over Ethernet capable one that failed.

Just thinking if I replace the router alltogether or not ...

Thx for any comments.
