Lesson Learned…

Just recently I got a POE (Power-over-Ethernet) switch installed by a co-worker. Lets just say it didn’t go to well. It worked for the first day or so, but then client was complaining of network slowness and blue screens(while opening larger files) Now I am pretty diligent on updating firmware on servers and controllers, but I never figured not updating a switch’s firmware would bring down a companies VoIP and Data network. As I said in the title… I sure learned my lesson, from now on, nothing leaves the office without upgrading every possible piece of hardware! :)
