Question about D-Link DGS-2208 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (DGS2208)

2 Answers

Won't allow connection to router

Recently I upgraded from a Linksys WRT54G router to a Netgear WNR854T router. I had the "main" computer connected to the router through a generic 8-port 10/100/1000 switch. Setting up the WNR854T router, I had to disconnect the switch from the connection. After getting internet connection through one computer that used to go through the switch, I reconnected through the switch. The computer would not establish a connection. Thinking it was a switch problem, I bought a D-Link DGS-2208 switch and replaced the generic one. Alas, still the same problem, I cannot get a connection to the router via the switch. I went into Network settings and changed the Media type from "Auto-Sense" to both 100MBS Full Duplex and 100MBS Half Duplex, still no success. The network card driver is a Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (card is "built-in" an ASUS A8V Deluxe MB)

    Switch lock up and power cycle will not reset the switch unless the network connections are removed.

I have a similar issue with a D-Link DSG-1005D switch. However, what I can tell you is that buying a crossover cable is a waste of money, as all Gigabit connections by specification are auto-sensing. If I find out the overall answer, i'll let you know, as I'm still looking.

Since each of these devices is rated for 1000Mb/s, everything should be compatible. Make sure the NIC driver is up-to-date on your computer....and use automatic settings for speed and duplex wherever you have the option of setting it. The only other thing I can think of is to try a "crossover" cable between the router and switch...although this function is usually handled automatically in most modern interfaces.

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time


Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

Please check your cable connections; are the lights blinking? try connecting your computer directly to the modem dsl port that is connected was to the router if connection can be restored.
