Hey guys, normally I would ask this question in the chat room but for some reason it will not open??

Anyways, we bought a new switch and router for the school
Router - D-Link DIR 655
Switch - NETGEAR JFS524E

Reason is because we had about 3 little switches and it was a mess, and impossible to diagnose if it was needed. So I managed to find a nice cheap one online that will do the job (QoS and Network monitoring was needed).

So I unplugged the first switch, put all the ethernet cords into the new one and plugged it into the router. No internet. Anything connected to the router had no internet. Unplugged it, it was fine.

So before I make a huge mess in the network room, I want to know what maybe I did and what to try. Computers right now are working because the switch I removed was needed for 3 computers that are not used much.

I'm thinking I did a loop?

Thanks in advance,
PcRc
