Question about D-Link DGS-2205 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (DGS2205)

Open Question

It has the green power light, but no activity lights

Basically, it looks like it died. I get power, but my computer
can no longer sense the switch. It keeps saying cable disconnected. Doesn't work on any of the ports tried.

is there anyway to reset the box? powering on and off doesn't help.
I've opened up the box, but nothing obvious like a fried chip was seen.
Anyone else have a similar problem and solution other than going a ahead and buying a new one?

SOURCE: Port speed issues with my DGS-2205

Gigabit swich does not enough for a Gigabit network, you also need to get your computers to support it, that means Gigabit network cards, buy if you don't have and you really need to, they are quite cheap these days.
If the above is not the case than it is barely possible, but worths a check, if you are using simple CAT5 cable instead of CAT5E or CAT6 (cable type is written on the cable, see for yourself)cable for the network?
If this is true consider doing a rewireing if really nessesary for speed, but cat5 is ok for gigabit around 10 meters distance for very good speeds.
However to do a little speedtest on your own first is not a bad idea at all, try to copy some big files between 2 computers and check the speed, 100Mbit networks used to do speeds about 8-10 Mbytes/sec that should do it for most networks, gigabit networks can do more, my record in my home network was 50-60Mbytes/sec, but mostly it's around 30Mbytes/sec.
Remember, better cable can do better speed and sometimes length affects network speed if the cable is very long (above 50 meters). And prepare, that you are not really going to reach the theoretical maximum speed of 125Mbytes/sec with common PC hardware. Maybe with some RAID based system or SSD can help you out, but most people don't really need that kind of speed.

SOURCE: d-link lights are all on

I don't think it has anything to do with the voltage its an issue with the ship on a certain batch , again not all the DES-1228P have that issue only few.
I am sure if you contact D-link they will replace the switch as it is a 5 years warranty

Could it be that green is high speed and amber is low speed? Or vice-versa?

SOURCE: there is no power coming

Sounds like the power supply to the switch may be bad, if it doesn't turn the power on.

Check the voltage of the power supply with a multimeter to see what the transformer power supply is outputing.

Hi,
Are you using the original power adapter ?

Use only CAT5 UTP fast-Ethernet cables no longer than 80 meters.

Connect just 5 or 6 computers to see if the problem resolves. Sometimes the internal buffer on the switch (the store-forward buffer) gets full, so the switch resets and stop forwarding packets until it get it's buffer cleared.

I hope it will help you.

Greetings

HP w2207 no vga input signal, no dvi input signal monitor goes to sleep


There is no signal coming from your PC.
excuse some of the solutions as sounding dumb, but we have to explore all possibilities.

Check the power cable going into the computer
Check the power input disconnect switch on the back of the power supply and make sure it is on
If the pc is plugged into a power bar, make sure it is turned on and the breaker isn't tripped
press power on the PC and make sure the lights are coming on.

now for the solutions that may actually help.

disconnect the power from the PC
if the video is on a card, remove and re-seat the video card
hook the power back up, connect the monitor and try again.

the CMOS on the computer may need to be reset.
I hate totally clearing the CMOS, so what I usually do is remove 1 stick of ram and power up. If the system is alive again, power down, put the RAM back in and power back up.
If that doesn't work, turn the system off, put the CMOS jumper to the CLEAR position for 15 seconds, put it back to the Normal position and then power back up.

Basically, if the monitor works on your friends system but not on yours, the the problem is your system, not the monitor (assuming it isn't working fine til it gets into windows...if that's the problem, you have a driver or configuration problem)

Hp pavilion 752n wont turn on.


Seems like a dirty or a bad switch altogether. With the face cover off, try spraying it with an electrical parts cleaner. If that doesn't work, replace it.

I keep getting a connection Error Message. Please Check that USB cable is connected and power switch is turnedl. I just upgraded to a new computer from and older model computer


Make sure you're plugging the USB cable from the machine intoa USB port in the BACK of your computer, not one of the front ports or a porton a USB hub. The cable and machine need more power than most of those portsprovide, a technical detail that Singer doesn't realize. If you're using a laptop, keep trying different USB ports until you find one that works. Good luck!

Volume keeps turning itself up philips lcd tv


this is due to surface mount capacitors going faulty on the side buttons panel. You can simply disconnect the cable from this board and use you remote to control the channels and volume. if you want it fixed you will have to replace the side button control panel which is a cheap part.

I have a Vostro 220. Last night, I put it to sleep mode. This morning, I found that it was off. When I turned it on, the power button glowed amber instead of the usual blue, I don't hear the usaul beep,...


you put it to sleep mode then it goes out completely. these problem only occurs when their is not enough power supply to boot up your computer. try to connect your computer from a stand alone power board that is further away from a power board that you are using. it will take time and if it continues, substitute the power supply with another one and keep the back switch voltage to 240v
