SD 2008 linksys switch slow

My 8 port Gb switch SD 2008 Linksys falls back to only 10 Mb on autoconnection. The switch is connected to 2 PC's with linksys EG1032 through patch cat 6 cables (3m). The system used to work properly on Gb . Both PC's now fall back to 10Mb

    I first assumed that it was my onboard broadcom netXtreme NIC but after reading reviews at http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductRev... I think it is a common fault with the SD2008 v2.1

    Same problem - switch appears to revert to 10MB on some ports - tried to manually force speed from NICs - no luck -

  • natecasp Mar 25, 2009

    I too have this same issue but it does seem to matter what type of NIC is connected to the switch. If I use a Broadcom NIC the performance is horrible however if I use a Linksys or Intel NIC all is good. Anyone know why or have the same problem?

Same problem here - switch appears to revert to 10MB on some ports and 100MB on others. Tried to force 1000 from NIC, but that just lost connectivity - had to reset back to auto to get any connectivity at all

    These Linksys SD2008 switches are rubbish.

    I have been to several sites with reviews/comments about the SD2008 and they all say the same thing. See http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductRev...



    Most users have problems with them some after only a few months but they all start going slower after a year of so and will not connect at 1Gb. If you can get down to board level solutions there is a capacitor near the heat sink that is usually the problem.



    The best solution is to throw it away and replace with a better brand.



    There is some talk of a Limited Lifetime Warranty but I wouldn't put much faith in that....

HOW DO I CONFIGURE A LINKSYS SD208 SWITCH


This unit does not require configuration. Simply connect main drop / ISP modem and use. The ports are auto detect, so basicly you can use any port. Uplink and / or crossover ready.

The full manual is only 9 pages, but even the 2 pager said it all.

Linksys SRW2008 blocking ports


blocking ports and QoS is a layer 3 function, switches are layer 2 unless you buy a layer two switch. You will need to do this on your router.

Dell XP 200 Dimension ethernet port


Hello.

I'd suggest testing with another computer and the same Ethernet cable to your modem to see if the results are the same and to narrow down which component is the problem.

Was it always slow with this setup or did something change.

Is the Linksys adapter connected via USB ? That would be slower than an internal adapter.

Try updating the Linksys adapter software - Device Manager - rightclick - update driver.

Hope these suggestions help.

Linksys EZXS16W Issue


Hi There, first of all you need to connect from your modem or router's port a link. Use a cat5 ethernet cable from the modem to the switch or if you also use a router from a port in back to the switch. Then when you plug in other computers it will see the internet connection. Good Luck...

Not all ports working


Sounds like you may have some wires cross between your switch and your router. And if someone worked on your pc, there probably something wrong with it too. Most places dont know how to fix a computer they just reinstall the OS and hand it back to you, less the unique drivers from your computer mfg for hardware such as network adapter drivers. Connect dirctly to the modem and got to dell support or whomever and check drivers
