The port flashes orange and green even without a cable plugged into it. When we do connect an ethernet cable, we cannot get through the port to the router. We have trouble shot by taking that cable and putting it in one of the other 10/100 ports. This does slow us down. Any help is greatly appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read this.

Re: 3Com 3c17304 port 25 up not connecting
Well I think the port is bad, I had one that did something similar to your problem. I got on the 3Com website and submitted and RMA request and they upgraded my with the newest model. But if yours is still in stock they will replace with the same type. That is what I would do. Hope this helps ya.

this could be a problem with the second switch unit. what happens if you connect a pc to this cable, is that intermittent, if so, that is your problem. try fault finding with a LAN cable tester to see if there's any issue with the link cable.
You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together. Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch. Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port. You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports. If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.
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
Connect the switch with a null-modem cable In windows, hyperterminal , To enter into Password Recovery Mode: login: recover password: recover Turn the power off (hard reset) within 30seconds
Re-enter the password twice.
Base from the description of your problem its only showing that some of the port on of your Ethernet switch is already getting bad and this usually happen on switch like this and eventually all port will go bad and will lead to the replacement of the device. With this type of problem you can first try to adjust the speed of your network card to 10 half duplex and check if that will correct the connectivity problem and if it does its just a sign that sooner or later the device is already getting bad and since its only a switch there's no firmware that we can load to it or even a reset button to bring the device back to its default settings.
