Holy crap, this is your first post in almost seven years? :)

I assume you are using a splitter inside and not a switch, yes? Have you tried swapping the cables at the splitter to see if the error follows the cable?

Again, what you are calling a switch is a splitter. Again, have you tried swapping cables at the splitter? You will have to move the power inserter when you do to keep it on the power passing port of the splitter. You could also try one of the unused ports, just be sure to keep the power inserter on the power passing port.

If you haven't tried a different port, I would. It seems you have eliminated a bad cable, so maybe it's a bad port on the splitter.
