Question about D-Link Express EtherNetwork DSS-5+ (NTSWDLDSS5PL)

Mac not connecting

My computer worked with this connector before, but it just stopped. Another desktop is hooked up and has a steady light. When mine plugs in, the light flashes on and off a few times and then goes to a steady light.
When opening up my internet it says there is no connection at all, and the network help cannot get me a connection either.
Can you help? We don't have an owner's manual anymore and I can't find one online.

I just bought a laptop computer and I already had a desktop. My internet provider is Hugesnet Satelite. I bought a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router thinking I could just hook it up to my desktop...

The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.
If you need more help, let me know by replying to this solution. Thank you for using FixYa!

Cannot share my cable modem connection

You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

NetGear ProSafe FS116P 16 Port... Problem:

I had the same issue with the 8 port prosafe GS108.
open the case, look for the small (barel like shape) capacitors near the power connector.
Their top is mostly silver and should be FLAT, if it is uneven or slightly expanded as if ready to explode, that is the one that need replacement.
Best source is any old motherboard or if you prefer, buy a couple new ones.
6.3 Volt, 1000mF (micro Farad)

If you cannot determin which one is gone, just replace both or how many your switch has.

DHCP problem and router connection

  • access router's configuration page and set the settings IP addressing to DHCP or auto assigning the IP addresses and the DNS
  • set the router mac address to the middle option set to computer mac address
  • and make sure all the computers connected to the router and the switch is set to automatically detect the IP address and the DNS is all set to auto detect...
  • how to access XP...goto to control panel and select network connections (for vista network and sharing center, manage network connections) and right click on the LAN, select properties select tcp/ip and click properties. and selct automatically assigns IP address and DNS.

Just connected to cable modem from dsl

two things are you hooked up from the dsl to the router via Ethernet or usb is so check the settings in the router, it should be auto, so it could choose but lets not assume anything.may sure dhcp client or server is enabled on the router, if not it would not pick up the ip adddress from dsl.
Is the mac address of your computer hardcoded to your dsl, if it is then you would have to clone your pc mac to the router for it to work.
If this is not the case, try a different router if it works the router is faulty. if that does not work plug the dsl directly to the pc and go to start, run type ipconfig /all if you recieve an ip address and you can see a dns address from your isp and you can go to the internet, then the problem is your router, if not the problem is with you isp dsl, please contact them. was this helpful let me know.

Connecting to the Internet with more than 1 computer (using a PureData 16 port device)

The PureData 16 port is just a hub and does not perform any of the housekeeping functions you would need in order to create a home network and connect several computers to the Internet at the same time. The reason why your procedure works is because your service provider by default will only allow you to have one IP address. When you unplug your modem that forces the providers equipment to reconnect to your computer and reissue the IP address. The way to get your desktop and laptop to connect simultaneously is to go down to your local computer store and purchase a home router/firewall. I?ve seen some on sale for as little as $35 at times and are fairly easy to setup. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
