Question about D-Link (des-3526) Networking Switch

DES-3526 problem Hi, guys... Our environment has 2 D-Link DES-3526 linked together by high speed ports. This morning I had a weird problem... one of them (the second one in chain) had every LEDs blinking (of course, the connected ones) in amber. Such blinking did not seem to be communications signs. It had a constant slow blinking frequency for a while, then every LEDs went off for a while also, then start blink again. All communication were stopped, even with the first one. The only thing occurred to me was unplug the power cable, wait some minutes and plug it again. It worked! So, my question is: what happened and why? Marcos, from Brazil

SOURCE: switch with 8 leds blinking (and not working)

You probably have to buy another switch. However, before you try that - the eighth most right cable - switch that out to see if it was a cable problem. That's an easy thing to try before you buy another switch.

SOURCE: D link DES 1048G Switch, is facing communication problem

u r saying after restarting of switch it is working fine.

  1. is ur switch is getting hit while it is hangup
  2. leds are starting blinking ??
if switch get hit u need to send it to service centre and replace card.
if switch is hanging while all LEDS are blinking this means one of the network calbe is getting short. u may need to search the faulty cable and restart the switch

For isolating the issue, try connecting the same computer to different ports on this switch. Mostly it should not be an issue with the computer but still as we need to troubleshoot this logically, we need to try this.
Else keep the power cable unplugged and plug it back in after 15 minutes.
Lastly try connecting your computers directly with the modem one-by-one.
Still if the problem persists, you may have to get the switch replaced.
Because a switch is not an intelligent device, nothing much can be done to troubleshoot.

I have a switch Dlink (DES-3026). All the status LEDs are blinking together with orange color. Is there any problem in that?

Blinking LEDs show data activity (Send & Receive) at the connected ports. So, there is no problem as long as the switch is performing well

Good Luck!

I have des 1008d switch running at 100 mbps.i want to get 200mbps speed full please tell me how to configure this switch to get the full speed.


D-Link DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet switch is unmanaged switch which can only support 10/100 MBPS.

You need to replace the switch and the network adapters with a gigabyte switch and adapters to get more bandwidth.

I interconnect a D-Link DES-10160 with D-Link Gigabit Switch DGS-1024D network and my network becomes slow

connect only DGS -1024D to your will be faster...
because DGS supports 10/100/1000 speed.... but DES supports only 10/100 speed...
connect DGS directly to your network and work with that... if you wish to extend the number of ports then connect the DES to one of the ports of DGS

and dont connect DGS to one of the ports of DES

There is no configuration on the switch, this is a dumb layer 2 device. Plug in you PC's etc.. and go. The switch will auto detect the speed and duplex of the device connected to it.

The DES-3526 has a lot of features and it would be quite hard to teach you everything through FixYa.

I suggest you start by carefully reading the manual. Everything is very well documented:

Then, once you have learned more about it, if you still have problems, feel free to write back and we will help you.
