Ethernet Switches (2)

What is a Ethernet Switch?

A switch connects all computer LAN connections into one device like a hub. Unlike hubs, switches can run at full-duplex mode. This means that the computer and switch can both transmit and receive simultaneously. The biggest difference between a switch and a hub is that when a computer transmits a digital signal to a hub, it’s then sent to all ports attached to that hub, whereas a switch will send it only to the specific port where the destination MAC address is located.

Also try to ping the wan port IP address. If can’t ping, the wan port may be bad.
