Drivers are not required, the device is a networking device and doesn't interact with the OS directly anyway.
What you might be looking for is the Web Interface that allows you to change settings, update firmware etc.
By default most are configured to either / /
Open your web browser, type one of those into the web address bar until you find the one that brings up the web page, from here you should be able to configure a few things.
If you are unsure click start > run > type: cmd > hit enter> a dos prompt appears, now type: tracert
You will see IP addresses appear as the computer traces the path the packets are taking to reach google, what you are interested in is the first address that is in that list, that should be your switch ip address and all you have to do now, is type that address in your browser address bar. This should now bring up the configuration page for the switch.

Still unsure of the address, head to D-links website and find the support link and search for your model of switch, from here you can bring up the detailed users guide which will contain instructions on how to access the Web interface also.

How to check who is on your router

Open a web browser and connect to your router by typing in its URL. The basic URL set for many routers is either or The URL for your router should be its IP address. If you are unsure what yours is, do the following: click "Start," then "Run." Type "Command" and then press "OK." In the DOS pop-up, type "ipconfig," and then press "Enter." This will give you a list of information about your internet connection; the IP address listed under "Default Gateway" should be the IP address for your router.

  • Enter your router user name and password to log into your router. Entering the router's IP address into a browser will bring up a pop-up requesting this information.
  • Search through the administrative tools and menus that your router offers, for a list or table of DHCP clients or of attached, connected, or active devices or computers. Different routers have different administrative options, so menu labeling will vary, but there should be a place to find a list of devices and IP addresses currently using the network. For example, users of the popular Linksys WRT54GL router can click "Status," then on the "Local Network" sub menu, and finally click on "DHCP Clients table" to bring up a list of attached devices.

    Need to reconfig router

    Of course, if you just want to reset to the factory settings and start from there, look on the back of the router for a little button to depress. Hold that in for 10 seconds while powered on. When it reboots itself, it will have the original factory configurations and you can enter any settings desired.

    Hope this helps.
