In June 2006 Nortel released a whole new line of class Ethernet Switches for small to medium sized businesses. While these switches don’t support the latest and greatest enterprise features they seem to be a very good value for those small businesses.
There are multiple models to choose from in both the 24port and 48port form factors, there are PoE (Power over Ethernet) models as well.
A full list of the models and there feature sets can be found here.
There are some re-occuring questions from folks that I thought I would post on;
What is the default username and password?
How can I factory reset the switch or recover the password?
There is a reset button in the front of the switch depicted in the figure below as (2);
The default IP address is 192.168.1.132 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
How can I login to the switch?
Just give your desktop or laptop a static IP address in the 192.168.1.0/24 network, connect your desktop or laptop to any of the RJ45 ports and open a web browser to http://192.168.1.132.
