    Is this switch plugged directly into a broadband modem? Or is the switch plugged into a router that is plugged into a broadband modem though the WAN port?

I brought a des 1008d swtich i want internet sharing with swtich .i connect all pc with this switch


You have to connect all the computers you have to the switch and connect your DSL or cable modem also to the switch and enable DHCP in it. Configure all your computers to obtain IP address automatically. This should work and you should be able to share the internet across the network

Why i cannot connect broadband connection through switch more than one computer at same time? But only one computer can connect.


Internet through your broadband connection is normally setup for single user.
If you need to use multiple systems to be connected to internet then you need NAT (Network Address Translation) to be enabled.
But unfortunately the D-Link DES-1008D doesnt support that.

How can I install or connect my d link to the internet line and my computer


Hi,

I assume you have a broadband connection which you are directly to your computer.

In that case please connect the broadband ethernet cable to one of your switch port.
Get a new CAT5 or CAT6 ethernet straight cable and connect one end to any free port of the DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet Switch and other end to your Computer.

No configuration needed to be done on DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet Switch

Best Regards

When i get connected to d-link des 1008d switch port the computer will get automatically configured 255.255.0.0 to subnet mask therefore i have class c ip address and i dont have internet connection...


u no need to worry about the subnet mask 255.255.0.0
just do the following connections
  1. connect a utp cable from modem/router to dlink switch.
  2. connect a utp cable from switch to ur pc
Assign ur pc manually with following configuration

ip: 192.168.100.5
subnet: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.100.1

and your router with ip: 192.168.100.1 And enable pppoe in ur router.

Thats it you are connected to internet. No need to enable ics etc.

Two pc connection by dlink switch


connect the router to the switch using any port-it does not matter which port you use. Connect each computer to any port on the switch-it matters not. The router will assign IP address to the computer as they are added.

DONE!!!

Good Luck

I dont how to connect my pc's using D-Link


Dear! first of all you need a 4 port hub or 8 port switch that have easily available. Now, first of all, put three wires (Straight Through Cable) in three different ports and other side its ends put in that nodes or computers. Now they are connected to each other. You want to sharing data for each you should run setup wizard for sharing inside the network places after that computer required a restart. Now the computer will start and data will share to each oher. You should use IP address for computers, first of all IP 192.168.0.1 for first PC and 192.168.0.5 for second PC and 192.168.0.10 IP for 3rd PC. Enjoy, everything is accessible now ...........
Thank You

Printer sharing wirh USB hub


I would connect the printer to the main computer, network the 2 computers and enable printer sharing. The only draw back to this is that the main computer will have to be on in order for the other to print. Vista makes this easy to do.

I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!
