The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

I got to thinking about crossover cable...is that required for this? If so, wouldn't it already be like that from the old switch? I know older switches have uplink ports, and I thought new switches could automatically figure it out.

I thought router to switch was supposed to use crossover? But I also thought that almost didn't matter anymore with newer products, since they automatically correct that...

All of the ports on the new switch are autosensing and autocorrecting. The only real issues could be 1. They didn't connect the cable from the router/modem to the switch. 2. No power (but you already addressed this) 3. They are not waiting long enough for the switch to complete it's startup routine before trying to access something. 4. One or more of the ports on the switch are bad. 5. the unit itself is faulty. IMO there is really very little else that can be done to have an unmanaged switch not work.
