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).

Does your ISP supply _one_ or _two_ IP-addresses per account?

On each computer:
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER

What "IP-address" and "gateway" do you get for each computer?

No, a "driver" for the switch is not necessary, and will not help.

Instead, buy a "router" (with or without wireless capability), and rewire your network:

Cable-modem -> Ethernet-cable -> WAN-port on router

LAN-port-#1 on router -> Ethernet-cable -> Computer #1
LAN-port-#2 on router -> Ethernet-cable -> Computer #2

Turn the cable-modem off.

Turn the cable-modem on.

Turn the router on, to get one IP-address from your ISP.

Restart each computer, to get new IP-addresses for each computer.

Within the web-browser on each computer, disable "auto detect proxy".

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.

Cannot get ip through D-Link DGS-1008D Green switch


Your question is a little odd, as you should not be dealing with ip addresses when referring to a switch. Is the devices only function as a switch? Is it powered on? Are the ports enabled? Please clarify what you are trying to do when you "don't get ip addresses through"

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.

Connecting xbox live to my d link 1005d


Is the PC's connected to the D-Link able to browse the Internet? Sometimes the MAC Address will bind to certain IP's and must be cleared out when the Router is replaced. Please unplug the power to the router, X-Box and Cable or DSL modem. 1st plug in the power to the DSL/Cable modem until the "Ready" light comes on. 2nd plug in the power to the D-Link Router, wait 30 seconds then plug in the X-Box, power on and test. If a computer plugged into the D-Link will browse Internet then this is the solution to your problem.
