Hmmm, I wonder if you are getting 'ebayed'? I bought 2 7250-24 units on ebay, but shelled out extra for two literal "never opened" units, and they were perfect. Also, though, mine are 24 port units, so... Hard to believe there is an issue with the 48 port units like this though.So, the eBay seller was good, got my refund, and since they were quick about things, I went ahead and ordered the last one....and same problems. This time, it is only the POE led for port 21 that is stuck on, but same, 24 of those "BCM_ERR: while 'bcm_port_mdix_set' is Feature unavailable" errors on boot and plugging anything into ports 1 thru 24 does not activate a link, but plugging in ports 25 thru 48 will bring up a link.
This, after he said they tested all the ports.
I loaded SPR08080f firmware and factory set-default, just to be sure and that didn't change anything.
Am I doing something wrong, or is this just another bad switch that failed the same exact way? I figured I'd check here before I send yet another one back. I am now hesitant to get another 7250.
