few devices are connected with our network with linksys 4 port switch (layer 2), then suddenly one particular devices stopped working. we tried dlink other linksys switches no use. that particular device still no communication.

when we change to the normal switch (layer 1 hub - unbranded low cost switch), all devices including that disconnected devices are start working (also pinging).

what are the differences in the above switches (low cost vs high cost).

For clarification, there is no such thing as a layer 1 switch. Switches are only layer 2. You did use the correct terminology in your post saying layer 1 and hub together as hubs are layer 1 devices.

Since you have already tested other brands of switches with the same device having intermittent connectivity, you need to focus on that device as the problem; especially with your other thread stating that device would have intermittent connectivity.

When the device stops working, what is the IP address showing?
