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:

Computer1
IP:192.168.2.2
MASK:255.255.255.0

Computer2
IP:192.168.2.3
MASK:255.255.255.0 Printer
IP:192.168.2.4
MASK:255.255.255.0 Etc...
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.

I have a D-link DGS-1005G. I have two computers connected and a printer. The D-Link is also connected via LAN. I can obtain internet connection to each computer with wireless and the printer will not...


Hi, you have to set up your printer as a device that can be communicated in your LAN by the two PCs.

To set up your printer properly in the LAN, you need to assign a fixed IP to this printer such that whenever it is switch on again, both PC still communicate to this printer without changing the new IP assigned to this printer.

You need to set up this fixed IP properly in your DLink router. For guidance please check this in your user manual of the Dlink. Please let me know any problem you may have again in future.

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 interconnect a D-Link DES-10160 with D-Link Gigabit Switch DGS-1024D network and my network becomes slow


connect only DGS -1024D to your network....it will be faster...
because DGS supports 10/100/1000 speed.... but DES supports only 10/100 speed...
connect DGS directly to your network and work with that... if you wish to extend the number of ports then connect the DES to one of the ports of DGS

and dont connect DGS to one of the ports of DES

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"
