Dead Ethernet Ports?
I've seen this happen on two different generations of Watchguard products now and am wondering if watchguard hardware is extra sensitive or what?
Our xtm22w one day had an ethernet port stop working--no link and no activity. The port would still show up under interfaces but would indicate that it was down (it was configured and in use when it died). Finally we just disabled it and used another port.
We upgraded to an m200 two years ago. And in the last 4 months, 4 ports have died--each one exhibiting the same issue we saw on the xtm22w. Even more strange, on one of the dead ports the link light is permanently on even when there is no cable. We have lost half the ports on this device!
What has everyone else's experiences been like with dead ports? Have you ever seen this on any of your hardware?
