Question about D-Link DGS-1008D 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (790069252747)
Subject says it all. any help?
jpmchugh, I know this response might come to you a bit late, but none the less it might help others who have this issue. I had exactly the same problem until recently, and looks like I found the solution (at least for me). So I thought I'd share it here, since I have not seen a real solution on the various forums I've visited through.
The one common thing I've noted when searching on this and other forums re the 8 bottom blinking lights and then the top right blinking light, repeating over and over again was about a power surge / storm etc.
The exact thing happened to me. A couple of months ago there was a really bad storm, we had a black out in our area and there were some spikes in our electrical systems.
When the black out was over my Gigabit switch was doing the same routine re the lights. The problem for me was the actual power supply unit.
This Switch I've had is about 1.5 yrs old, dunno if I can claim it on warranty from dlink. I've checked the dlink au website and it quotes 5 years, but dunno if it covers storm damage.
Anyways, I took the faulty power supply and the switch to my local jaycar store today. The sales guy noted that the output should be 7.5v, however when he did a test, it was actually showing 12v. He said that the switch must have some sort of built in protection, cause usually supplying 12v to a device that needs 7.5v should have fried the device.
We tried out a replacement power supply and bang.... back in business.
The only kicker was that the replacement power supply cost me around (AUD) $39.95, cause it's one of those fancy multi volt ones. If you can find one that is fixed at 7.5v it might be a cheaper option
Please let me know if this has solved your problem.

Try to connect the switch directly to the power source (do not plug it in the nobreak or stabilizer)
