Question about Linksys -Cisco 16Port 10/100 RM Switch [ SR216 ] (107006)

1 Answer

Not all ports seem to work

It started with the printer saying attempting to connect.  Now we have other computers that have worked on the network before that are saying the same, but I have not changed any of the cable connections

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.

Linksys sd2008 won't work with printers


I need more information regarding your problem. You mentioned printers, which I assume you are referring to more than one printer device.
Are the printers connected or capable of using the Ethernet port on the gigabyte switch? If they or some of the printers are connected directly to the switch through an Ethernet cable you may need to configure the device from the I/O menu accessed through the printer setup to activate the Ethernet connection or Jet Direct from the HP printers. You will need to assign a TCP/IP address on the printer which should match the computer's network IP without duplicating the address. If the computer IP address is 192.168.0.1 the printer must use an address which no other computer or device is using, for example, 192.168.0.100 (note you can only change the last number of the IP address).
If you are trying to access printers connected to a port on one of the network computers I need to know if it is a PC or MAC? If it is a PC, I need to know the operating system type i.e. Windows, DOS, Linux, or Unix and version i.e. Windows7, Vista, XP, 98. I will assume Windows XP, which needs to have the printer device marked as Shared. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Right click on the printer you are trying to use and select Sharing. Select Share this printer and give it a share name to help you identify it when shared on the network and click OK. Go to another computer on the network where you want to use the shared printer. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Click on Add a Printer. Click next and select add a network printer. Select browse for a printer and click next. After a few moments, you should see your shared printer with the share name. Select the printer and continue through the rest of the installation. You should be able to use the printer from that computer. If your printer is connected to a computer, you must have that computer on to use it on the network. If your printer is connected to an Ethernet switch you will be able to use the printer as long as the printer and switch is turned on. If this does not help try to be more specific, and I will clarify the instructions.

HP printer will not print over wireless network using Belkin hub


Try turning everything off, wait a couple of seconds and then turn it back on.  Also try disabling McAffee to test.  When you go to printers and faxes on the PC, what is the status of your printer?

I have a Linksys 5 port workgroup hub. I have 2 computers and a printer on it and it all works well. I have a satellite connection with the modem coming into the hub. That works well too. I now have...


have you tried simply disconnecting the router from its power and data source, remove the power source from the modem, connect the router back to the modem,(with all the systems allready connected to the router), restore power to the router, then finaly restore power to the modem. after a few min the router should automatically sense multiple requests for dns and ip services and asign addressess accordingly.

If that makes no diff, watch the led light on the router that corresponds to the port that the non-functioning system is docked with. when attempting to access the internet, does the led blink? if it blinks fast and you also see that the "modem link" is flashing then there is a connection, and any lack of access to the internet has to be a firewall setting.

simply go into your router settings by typing 192.168.1.1 in your web browser and using "admin" as the username and leave the password blank(that is unless you have changed all that)
you should be able to view all the computers currently active on your network and the ip assigned to them. you may see that port 5 has been restricted, in which case the easiest way from the very beginning would have been to simply take a ball point pen and hit the reset button on the back of the router.
on the other hand, try that first then the other options above as you may save yourself lots of time and headache

GOOD LUCK!!!

Use two computers with one printer


Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000

Unrecognized usb devices


If they work without the the expansion unit, the unit is not passing the power through. Many work this way. Some will work with external power.

Problem with SXP2224WM compex switch.


If I remember correctly, this device has vlan. Did you check to make sure that the vlan is configured or turned off? And does this have a firewall? Seems like a firewall is blocking ping port but allowing traffic. Also, I thought the 24WM was a 24 port switch, you mentioned a hub, but what kind of hub is it? It really sounds like a port blocking issue.
