Bear with me here. I'm not the most IT savvy guy. Ethernet cable comes out of the wall, plugs into an eight slot switch. I have five cables to these five individual docking/charging stations and one to my PC obviously. Today director came in to replace the five stations to one big station. From five cables to one. Fine by me. Unplug the cables from the switch, connect the new docking station with the one wire, and away I go. Or not. New docking station not connecting. Follow it to the switch. Switch is picking up the connection from the docking station, but not the wall. Odd. I plug my PC directly into the wall. Nothing. So the outlet is dead. How in the hell could that have happened? There's no power, only data so there's not like anything shorted. I didn't knock or bump the outlet. I never even went near the outlet when doing this. The moment I connected the large docking station with the Ethernet cable, the wall outlet called it quits. I just look like the biggest moron because this was supposed to be a brainless thing to do. Instead we have the IT guy coming in on Thursday. Any ideas? Thanks.
