Is there a way to find the MAC address of a switch from a PC instead of looking physically at the back of the switch. The switch has already been installed and is difficult to get to the back of it. thanks in advance. Naj

I got this switch DGS-3224TGR from a friend but he forgot password. Can I manually reset switch to factory defaults?


Yes, you can reset the unit, but I suggest that you RESET to YOUR specs.
Get the install program from D-Link, for free, but below are the highlights of what I think is important to set:

Wireless Router settings:


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, which you can get from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below:


To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.


Things to set:


(Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE OFTEN.)

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).


There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not set mac address limits.

How do I connect to the router interface.I tried to enter 192.168.0.1 into the internet browser to no avail. I have both a Mac and a PC, but would prefer using the Mac as the main computer. Cheers Rod


Keep in mind that a switch is NOT a router. Switches merely distribute sugnals to other computers, but does NOT manage IP addresses. You can connect your modem to a router to a switch but if you connect the modem to the switch then you can not control the switch. Suggest you get a router instead of a switch.

IP IOS Command not working with switch


you want to give IPs to your VLANs and also make physical interfaces members of a VLAN instead of giving IPs to physical interfaces

Layer3


Which model are you talking about ? I have included both


Here is the OSI model
Layer 1 = physical medium & signal on the wire (physical)
Layer 2 = MAC Address and SNAP (ATM) (data link)
Layer 3 = IP Addressing V4 V6 (network)
Layer 4 = TCP/UDP (RTP, RTSP) (transport)
Layer 5 = Duplexing Half or full (Session)
Layer 6 = HTTP, FTP, SNMP (presentation)
Layer 7 = Web browser, FTP Client, (application)

TCP Model:
Layer 1 = physical medium & signal on the wire (physical) (Hub and reapeter)

Layer 2 = MAC Address and SNAP (ATM) (data) (Switches and bridges)

Layer 3 = IP Addressing V4 V6,
Layer 4 = TCP/UDP (RTP, RTSP) (Internetwork) (Firewall, IPSEC) Routers

(This function is split between 4&5) Duplexing Half or full

Layer 5 = , HTTP, FTP, SNMP, Web browser, FTP Client, (application) (programs)


I hope this helps,

Thank you,

DHCP problem and router connection


  • access 198.162.0.1 router's configuration page and set the settings IP addressing to DHCP or auto assigning the IP addresses and the DNS
  • set the router mac address to the middle option set to computer mac address
  • and make sure all the computers connected to the router and the switch is set to automatically detect the IP address and the DNS is all set to auto detect...
  • how to access XP...goto to control panel and select network connections (for vista network and sharing center, manage network connections) and right click on the LAN, select properties select tcp/ip and click properties. and selct automatically assigns IP address and DNS.
