I'm dealing with some weird networking issues at a workstation in a large warehouse. There is a preexisting drop that is being used for a machine.
I found the other end of the wire by using a tone generator. But when I connected the light tester, I received no lights. I returned to the workstation and found that when I plugged the network cable back into the workstation but did NOT plug it into the switch, I was still getting a link light.
This means there has to be another switch somewhere in the middle, right? Or am I missing something? Is there any way to do some type of trace to see how devices are connected?
