same time. It is always best to do one thing at a time so you
know what the fix was for future purposes. A partially connected
cable could have caused what you were seeing depending on what
pins were connected. If I plugged in one cable I have plugged in
tens of thousands installing and troubleshooting the major long
distance company's telephone switches, ie: MCI, US Sprint, etc.
It is sometimes hard to know if things are hardware or software
related. For me, hardware is what I go with first. A trick you
can do when you have redundant hardware (two of the same backing
up each other) or two similar hardware devices is "roll" or
"frog" the cables. That means to take the end off each device
and swap them. See which way the problem goes. That way you can
determine if it is a hardware or software problem, or at least
clear the two pieces of hardware.
