I have a Linksys DGS-1224T switch in a classroom. I lost Internet connection and discovered that my 1st and 3rd row of lights are flashing green and 2th and 4th row are constant orange. I don't know what the lights signify. Can you help?

Hi, you have to set up your printer as a device that can be communicated in your LAN by the two PCs.
To set up your printer properly in the LAN, you need to assign a fixed IP to this printer such that whenever it is switch on again, both PC still communicate to this printer without changing the new IP assigned to this printer.
You need to set up this fixed IP properly in your DLink router. For guidance please check this in your user manual of the Dlink. Please let me know any problem you may have again in future.
connect only DGS -1024D to your network....it 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
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.
Is the PC's connected to the D-Link able to browse the Internet? Sometimes the MAC Address will bind to certain IP's and must be cleared out when the Router is replaced. Please unplug the power to the router, X-Box and Cable or DSL modem. 1st plug in the power to the DSL/Cable modem until the "Ready" light comes on. 2nd plug in the power to the D-Link Router, wait 30 seconds then plug in the X-Box, power on and test. If a computer plugged into the D-Link will browse Internet then this is the solution to your problem.
Since each of these devices is rated for 1000Mb/s, everything should be compatible. Make sure the NIC driver is up-to-date on your computer....and use automatic settings for speed and duplex wherever you have the option of setting it. The only other thing I can think of is to try a "crossover" cable between the router and switch...although this function is usually handled automatically in most modern interfaces.
it depends on the type of internet service you have if it is cable internet most cable modems can act as a gateway for conecting multiple computers but the cable company needs to activate that feature on the modem.
