Question about D-Link DGS-2208 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (DGS2208)

1 Answer

D-Link DGS-2208 only works through Hub uplink but not router?

I had D-Link router DGL-4100 connected to cable modem, and to D-Link switch DGS-1008D, and working OK. Switch died. I replaced with new D-Link switch DGS-2208 connected same manner; does not show connectivity and no data flows. The lights work and blink as expected, but no data flow. If I connect router to Linksys Hub EFAH05W, then connect D-Link 2208 to the uplink port on the hub, then the 2208 shows connectivity and data flows ok. Why does 2208 not connect same way as 1008? Can't get Gbit LAN to work as it previously did. Tried two different 2208 devices; both work same way, and neither works when connected directly to router. What's up? Thanks for help.

    makes sense, except that I connect router to LinkSys hub, then to D-Link switch then D-Link works ok...and can either be connected LinkSys LAN port or the UpLink port and it works ok. Use all different cables I have for Linksys, does not matter. Use the D-Link cable that came in the box with the switch, connect to router per instruction manual, does not work. confused. Thanks for help.

One of the LED is orange instead of green


I also have the DGS-1008D 8-port switch and it connects fine at gigabit speeds between my 5 PC's - I would check the cabling again, as mine was plug and play. As soon as it was hooked up and switched on, I got the green light for the gigabit connection - my 100mb router (also D-Link) connects with an orange light, as it cannot achieve gigabit speed.


Hi there and thanx for the reply.
I have connected PC's with the gigabit cards to the point where the one machine connects at 1Gig. All machines connect at 1 Gig at that specific point. So it is either the cables itself or the connection in the jack itself problem

I would like to manage the router's dhcp config. How do I get into the management screen?


The DGS-1008D is a gigabit switch and not a router. It does not have a DHCP server as it will simply pass traffic between all the devices connected to it. It is meant to be connected to a DHCP server (router).

I cannot find the reset button on my D-Link DGS-1008D router..Where is it..?


there is no reset for that Model its just a pass through router your modem connects to it and provides other hard wire connections to access the modem. it is typically used for consumers that have a modem with only one ethernet port and wanting to expand the ports to allow more pc's to connect via hard wire ethernet

I need to ask about my problem. I just bought a D-Link DES-1008D and a D-Link DIR-300 Wireless-G Router my problem is after I attach 7 computers on my switch hub. I only have limited local network...


Make sure you're using a crossover ethernet cable to connect the router to the switch. Also make sure that the router has it's DHCP server up and running.

DES-1008D connectivity issues.


Is the modem a DSL or cable model?
Does the router have one ethernet port and a WAN port?
Normally the broadband modem is connected to the WAN port on the router and the ethernet port on the router is then connected to the hub/switch and the computers are then connected to the hub/switch.
The modem gets an unique IP address from your Internet Service Provider and then the router then issues Class "C" IP addresses to each computer that is connected to the switch/hub.

When I connect a DSL router to my switch, either the link goes down or the router hangs. I'm connecting via a cross-cable as the switch does not have an uplink port. Any ideas?


Maybe your cable is bad.
Have you tried a different cable.

I just read the specs and it seems like quite a modern switch.
I'd be surprised if the ports aren't auto sensing so either a straight or cross over cable should work.

You could try a factory reset on the switch.

Another idea is connect to your DSL modem direclty from you pc and from your browser open the modems config page There should be some kind of event log in there somewhere. See if anything gets logged when the link goes down. It might give you some idea where to look. Your modem manual should tell you how to find the event logs. I take it your DSL modem only has one ether net port?

Hope this helps

Tutorials On How to configure a D-Link DES-1008D Ethernet Swich


There really isn't much to setting up an ethernet switch hub. Plug a network cable into your router LAN connection and into port 1 or uplink port of your switch. All other computers will attach to ports 2 to 8. If you have an Uplink port and port 1, they usually can only be used singlely. That is to say use either the Uplink or port 1 Using both disables the switch hub.

Switch with 8 leds blinking (and not working)


You probably have to buy another switch. However, before you try that - the eighth most right cable - switch that out to see if it was a cable problem. That's an easy thing to try before you buy another switch.

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx
