Re: D-Link DFE 916

The D-Link DFE-916 hub is unmanaged, there is no web management console. You will need setup your broadband modem setup as DHCP to assign your workstations IP address, (or you could go static IP, but DHCP is suitable for most situations)
Topology should be like this:

here the link the manual,

concerning the bandwidth pirate, you will need the offending computers mac address, (Media access Control)
to do this:

click start,
type in: ipconfig /all
the line that reads: "Physical Address" is the MAC address
the format will read like this: xx-xx-xx-xx-xx
Now check your broadband modem or you routers management console for a MAC filter, this is where you can allow or ban a device or computer from the network.

Good Luck!

What is the default IP address of D-Link DES-1024R for accessing from PC for switch management?

the usual ip add of a Hub or Router or Switch is either or to determine the Ip Add you can check it - Start - Run (for XP) - type Run in the search box and use the Run command - in the Run Box type in "CMD" - a small black box will pop up (that's the command prompt) - then type in "ipconfig" - look for the "default gateway" that's the ip add of the switch or hub or router.
Hope this helps

Two d-link hubs do not communicate

Hubs don't have the brains to communicate without help. They're more like a splitter than a switch is. If you're not using static IP's then the best thing to do is plug them into a router or a managed switch capable of assigning IP addresses. Also, be sure you are using the correct cabling. Conventionally, hubs are to be hooked up with straight cables and switches with crossovers, but in today's auto-sense world that's rarely an issue. In any case, be sure you are using the "Uplink" port when attaching a hub to another piece of networking equipment. Try assigning everything static IP's or using a device with DHCP to act as a brain. If these suggestions don't help please post more information about what it is you're trying to accomplish. Good luck.

I need the instructions

Network hubs do not need to be setup. Just plug the LAN cable from each computer to the hub.
Each computer's LAN card needs to be configured with the same workgroup name and a TCP/IP address, it needs to have the same IP address range. Eg. 192.168.0.XXX (XXX needs to be a different number for each computer from 1 to 254) with a Subnet mask
