Zonet ZFS3024 24-port 10/100MB Ethernet Switch

All the port lights remain lit even when there are no computers attached via ethernet. Does this mean a hardware failure on the switch? Can viruses cause a switch hardware failure?

In side there is a small circuit board with 2 two capacitors that have gone out
These will be 2200uf 6.3v simple repair replace the capacitors observer polarity (+ )or( -)
Almost any old computer mother board will have the parts you need this is common many power supply’s and switches develop the same problem 2200uf x10v will be okay the voltage rating is only the size once repaired the lights will flash once and the switch will be back working like new .
Remember when soldering on electronics to use” Isolated “device or unplug the iron from AC voltage before touching the circuit board Very nice switch’s the Zonet I own 7 and have repaired one that was given to me because the lights stayed on . If you install the capacitor wrong it will make a nice mess and blow everywhere so observe how you remove and be sure to replace exactly the same way .

I am trying to set up a switch between my PS3 and my PC. I have an external DSL modem. I purchased a 5 port switch(Rosewill RC405-x) but no luck. Can I use an ethernet splitter instead?

You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together.
Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch.
Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port.
You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports.
If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.

D link des 800d switch configure ip addess for 2 computers on a network

D-Link DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet switch is unmanaged switch which can only support 10/100 MBPS.The DES-1008D is a passive switch which means there is no way to configure the ip address and no need to.

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


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

What wires go into the back of the Dynex 5 Port 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch?

A switch is a device for networking computers printers or other devices with an ethernet port. Most common scenario would be to hook a cat5 cable from your broadband router's lan port to Port 1 and then connect your other ethernet devices to the remaining ports. In order for the devices to cmmunicate you'll want to make sure that they are on the same ip subnet. Usually, 192.168.1.x.
Your router may be, your PC Printer Each device needs a unique IP address.
Hope that helps.

Got a hub genius GH4080SE and trying to connect computers, pls advise what is the steps?

Hardware Setup

1 Find the WAN or uplink port of the Ethernet hub. Typically, it is located on the rear of the unit, and it is often separate from the LAN ports.

2 Connect an Ethernet cable from the WAN port of the hub to either the Ethernet port of the internet modem or, if expanding a network, to an empty LAN port on the existing network’s router, switch or hub.

3 Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the LAN ports on the Ethernet hub and connect the other end of cable to the computer or device that will be added to the network. Repeat for any other devices that will need to be on the network.

4 Power up the Ethernet hub and the computers or other devices attached to it. On the front of the hub will be a series of LEDs that correspond to each LAN and WAN port on the hub. Every port that has a cable plugged into it should have one or more of the LEDs lit that represent that port. If not, check the connections and swap out the Ethernet cable if necessary.
Software Setup

1 Configure the network settings on each connected computer. If you are expanding a network and the network uses DCHP, or dynamic IP addressing, no configuration will be necessary. On networks using static IP addressing or on a new network setup using the Ethernet hub, each computer or device must be assigned a unique IP address. Local IP addresses must use the allowed “private” address pools that will not interfere with internet addresses. Acceptable addresses include 192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x to 172.31.x.x, or 10.x.x.x. The “x” represents a number that is chosen by the user, from 0 to 254. All computers on the network should share the first three numbers in the address, with the final number representing the individual computer. In a network with three computers, for example, the first could be, the second could be and the third could be, though the final number does not need to be sequential.

2 Click the “Start” button in Windows, select “Control Panel" and double-click the icon labeled “Network Connections.”

3 Right-click the icon for the Ethernet adapter and select “Properties.” Click on the check box marked “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and press the “Properties” button.

4 Select the radio button labeled “Use the following IP address.” Enter a unique IP address for the computer and the applicable subnet mask. If a router is used on the network, enter the router’s IP address as the default gateway. Press the “OK” button and reboot if necessary.

5 Enable file and printer sharing from the “Properties” dialog for the Ethernet card if files will be transferred between the networked computers.

6 Click the “Start” button, select “Control Panel” and double-click on the “System” icon. Select the “Computer Name” tab and click on the button labeled “Change” to set the computer’s network name. In the “Computer Name” box, enter a unique name for the computer. In the “Member of” section, choose the radio button marked “Workgroup” and enter the workgroup of the network. If setting up a new network, this name can be change but all computers on the network must share the same workgroup name.

7 Verify that all computers can access the network and the Internet if connected.

Which port do i plug in the ethernet cord from the modem. Zonet ZFS3008P and does any one have owner manual


It is basically a switch so if you are planning to connect more than one computer using this switch than you need to connect a router in between modem and switch

modem -- > router -- > switch -- > computer

from your modem an ethernet cable will connect into an internet port on the router and than from LAN port of a router cable will connect into any port on your switch.

Let me know in case if you need more help :)

I am connecting 4 nodes through 2 switch located at 400ft distance. the data transfer is not working. 2 nodes are connected to each switch, both nodes connected to individual switch communicates with each...

Just to clarify, you have 4 computers connected to two ethernet switches. Two computers are connecteh to each ethernet switch and a network cable connecting the two ethernet switches 400ft apart.

For all the computers to communicate with each other, they all need to be in the same workgroup "name".
The cable joining the two ethernet switches need to be connected to the RJ45 UPLINK port on both the ethernet switches, and the uplink port may have a switch (the switch allows it to function as a standard RJ45 port or a RJ45 uplink port).
If there is no RJ45 uplink ports on the ethernet switches then a cross over network cable is needed to connect the ethernet switches together.

Fsm750s 48 port - we had ports 9,10,11,12 go out in a storm - can they be repaired? power on/off didn't reset - going into the Netgear via IP and disabling and enabling also did not work

Unfortunately, nothing to be done other than replace it if you need the ports. You could in theory replace the chip or chips that got burned up but it would probably not be worth it and it it's an ASIC(likely) you'll probably not even be able to source it.
