Question about D-Link DES 3226 (DES-3226) 24x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch
I recommend replacing the switch as well. Sometimes you can get those switches to limp along for a while longer, but they can also cause additional damage to the network attached devices as well down the road.
Don't take the chance, and replace the whole thing. I wouldn't say that Cisco is the only brand that i would recommend. 3COM and others still make quality switches. Also, your replacement dependson your needs as well, as some people need managed switches and others do not.
Honestly, if what you had before worked well, I would replace it with the same thing. Additionally, make sure you're using a UPS device on this as well to prevent surge damage.
Also, as a side note. When this device shorted out, were there devices connected to it or was everything unplugged? If there were other devices connected, they too can be damages, although they don't always show signs of damage at first. Be sure to check them out as soon as you get the new switch installed and connected.

Where is the short circuit? usually you cant fix a short unless it is in the power switch itself.i would sugest trashing it and replacing it. i always stick with cisco brand but there are other god ones. check pc world and cnet reviews on switches and routers. cost you more to repair than replace.
