Question about D-Link DGS-2205 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (DGS2205)
I have a green speed light on my switch on the first port. That indicates I have 1000 mbs entering the switch. All of the other 4 ports are capable of speeds of 10/100/1000 yet I only get 100 mbs on the other four ports.
How do I get the full capable speeds out of all of my ports?
Note Green light indicates 1000mbs and yellow light indicates 100mbs. I have 1 green and four yellow.
Gigabit swich does not enough for a Gigabit network, you also need to get your computers to support it, that means Gigabit network cards, buy if you don't have and you really need to, they are quite cheap these days.
If the above is not the case than it is barely possible, but worths a check, if you are using simple CAT5 cable instead of CAT5E or CAT6 (cable type is written on the cable, see for yourself)cable for the network?
If this is true consider doing a rewireing if really nessesary for speed, but cat5 is ok for gigabit around 10 meters distance for very good speeds.
However to do a little speedtest on your own first is not a bad idea at all, try to copy some big files between 2 computers and check the speed, 100Mbit networks used to do speeds about 8-10 Mbytes/sec that should do it for most networks, gigabit networks can do more, my record in my home network was 50-60Mbytes/sec, but mostly it's around 30Mbytes/sec.
Remember, better cable can do better speed and sometimes length affects network speed if the cable is very long (above 50 meters). And prepare, that you are not really going to reach the theoretical maximum speed of 125Mbytes/sec with common PC hardware. Maybe with some RAID based system or SSD can help you out, but most people don't really need that kind of speed.
