assign them an IP address each, making sure the addresses are all different and consecutive, make sure the subnet mask is the same on all machines, the switch will work right out of the box.

SOURCE: I have a D-link DGS-1005G.
The LED light color indicated the speed at which data is being transferred. I believe the orange light means 100mbps, which is a decent transfer speed, while green indicates gigabit (1000mbps) speeds. This just means the devices connected to green ports are a bit newer and support higher speeds. This will have nothing to do with the problems you are experiencing, which are basic network setup related.
Simple breakdown: The two computer's wireless cards on network "A" are automatically given correct addressing from your wireless router to communicate with each other, and with the internet. The computer's LAN (Ethernet port) cards, the D-Link Switch, and the printer's LAN card are on network "B". Network "B" will not be able to access the internet, but if configured correctly should allow your computers to communicate to your printer. You can find simply how-to's on configuring IP addresses manually for your computers, but you will have to play with your printer's menu to find the correct selections to do this. A very simple config that will allow the devices connected to your D-Link switch to talk to each other is:
Once you have them talking, you'll still have to actually setup the printer (local IP port, drivers, etc), but this will solve your first problem.
More info: All of the networking cards (both wireless and wired) are configured to obtain the network configuration automatically. This works great for network "A" because they are connected to a wireless router. Most wireless routers are programmed to dynamically assigned IP addresses and routing information. The network cards on network "B" are also looking for a DHCP server (built in to your wireless router) to give them their config, but since none are available, they all have invalid auto-assigned addressed.
