When I did the reset, I had only one eithernet cable connected.

I pressed the factory reset button on the front right hand side of the unit for about 10 seconds then released. The light indicating connectivity on Port 1(where the Ethernet cable is attached directly to my laptop) went out for about 2 or 3 seconds, then game back on and was blinking for awhile then became a solid green light. During this time, I was capturing packets through wireshark, looking for some type of indication.

I'm going to try the other suggestions you made in your reply, to see if maybe this switch is just picky on the reset feature.
