RE: [K12OSN] Really a networking issue but...

Take it in steps, starting at the modulars and working your way out to the

Disconnect the terminals from the wan, and connect to a laptop running
Knoppix/LTSP.  Do the clients boot ok?

Next try plugging the WAN back in at the modular end, and going to the
building end.  Plug the Knoppix laptop in to the other end of the fiber.  Do
the terminals boot?

If the terminals do boot, keep moving back along your network until you find
where it stops functioning.

When you discover where it stops working, thats where your issue is.  Are
the fiber units fried, or perhaps not properly plugged in?  If you can tell
us where it stops, we can then help you figure out what steps to take next.
