Didn't recognize uplink

I tried to put our equipment on the ef3116 switch and when I did that, I couldn't get anything to logon. I put the network feed into port 1 and ran everything els off of that. Am I doing something wrong?

Not really, you just have a minor misconception. The network feed is not suppose to plug into the uplink. The uplink is for connecting 2 switches together so they act as if they were one switch.

Steps how to install 4-port Cable router what steps we should do..


This is a switch so if it is the only thing that is attached to your modem it will not work for more than one device. The first device that it talks to will be the only one with internet. If you want to use internet on more than one device you need to get a router. This will make it so you can use more than one device on your network.
If it is not the only thing attached to your modem and a router comes first then setup is simple. You just have an Ethernet cable go from any port on the router to the "uplink" or "internet" port on the switch. Once this is attached you can attach anything else to the switch and it will have internet.

Two d-link hubs do not communicate


Hubs don't have the brains to communicate without help. They're more like a splitter than a switch is. If you're not using static IP's then the best thing to do is plug them into a router or a managed switch capable of assigning IP addresses. Also, be sure you are using the correct cabling. Conventionally, hubs are to be hooked up with straight cables and switches with crossovers, but in today's auto-sense world that's rarely an issue. In any case, be sure you are using the "Uplink" port when attaching a hub to another piece of networking equipment. Try assigning everything static IP's or using a device with DHCP to act as a brain. If these suggestions don't help please post more information about what it is you're trying to accomplish. Good luck.

How can i reset the linksys ef3116 to default if it doesn not have a reset button or knowing what the ip address is on the switch?


You can use a port scanner to find its IP address, such as Angry IP Scanner http://www.angryip.org/w/Download and reset it from there. It is most likely 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.x.

You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).

You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.

When I plug a cable into port 8 it will shutdown the switch


Your router supports a total of 8 connections. However, on the back there are 9 physical ports. Port 8 has two physical connectors where one (we will call it port 8a) is used to connect to a PC and the other (we will call that port 8b) is used as an uplink port. The uplink port (8b) cannot be used if something is pluged into 8a. If you are trying to use all 9 physical ports that is likely ther problem. If you need more than 8 devices connected to your switch get another 8 port switch (any brand will do) and connect the two switches via the UPLINK port with a 7 foot CAT-5 cable. Do not use a CAT-5 patch cable less then 7 feet long to connect two network devices together such as computer to switch or switch to switch as that will probably cause another problem with timing.

Another possibility is that the device at the end of port 8 has a malfunctioning network adapter. Try connecting a laptop to port 8a using a 7' CAT-5 cable. You may also want to try pluging the problem cable into another port as a way to test if the problem is somewhere along the cable run.

I am connecting 4 nodes through 2 switch located at 400ft distance. the data transfer is not working. 2 nodes are connected to each switch, both nodes connected to individual switch communicates with each...


Just to clarify, you have 4 computers connected to two ethernet switches. Two computers are connecteh to each ethernet switch and a network cable connecting the two ethernet switches 400ft apart.

For all the computers to communicate with each other, they all need to be in the same workgroup "name".
The cable joining the two ethernet switches need to be connected to the RJ45 UPLINK port on both the ethernet switches, and the uplink port may have a switch (the switch allows it to function as a standard RJ45 port or a RJ45 uplink port).
If there is no RJ45 uplink ports on the ethernet switches then a cross over network cable is needed to connect the ethernet switches together.

Ef3116 has different up and down speed.


PC1 may have a defective NIC card. Also, verify that PC1's NIC card is using an up-to-date driver and that it's interface speed and duplex settings are set to auto-negotiate.
