If the switch doesn't have an "uplink port" or autodetect the port speed, then you will need a crossover cable to connect the DLINK to the Surecom switch. If this is the same issue then rate this one so it can be closed. If not then let me know how it goes. Good Luck

Bought a d514-4 port,router @ a yard sale with no CD

There's no need for any CD-ROM.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to the WAN port on the router.

Use another Ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the 4 'LAN' ports on the router.

Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway .... 123.456.1.1
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://123.456.1.1
Press Enter
Login to the router's web-site (try 'admin' & "blank"; try 'admin' & 'admin'; try "blank" & 'admin')
Run the router's "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure the wireless adapter.
