    I have the same problem. I just returned the switch and picked up a new one but it has the same problem. Must be me!

    As I said, it must be me. Maybe I figured it out (at least it works for me). On the icon tray you must right click on the switch icon, then click on switch. It will then recognize the computer it is to print from. Hope this helps someone else.

Iogear GUB231 won't pass printing command


Make sure you are selecting the printer after you hit print button. Sometimes there are other printers listed that are not installed and you end up sending spool to them. Also make sure you set the printer

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.

We used our Dynex successfully for several months (serving 2 computers) and then, after a big thunderstorm the other night, now Computer 1 internet will only work when plugged directly to the modem....


Thanks for your question.

Given that one computer works and the other does not would tell me to change out cable to see if it fixes the issue, if not then the switch would be the issue on that particular side. Nine times out of ten its the cable itself.

Whichever the case may be you still would be recommended to try another Ethernet cable. Now the lan card inside the computer 2 should also light up when connected, so I would pay close attention to the lan card as well.


Thanks for your questions, We work for your Feedback and ratings, so dont forget to leave some feedback before you leave.

Best of luck

Linksys sd2008 won't work with printers


I need more information regarding your problem. You mentioned printers, which I assume you are referring to more than one printer device.
Are the printers connected or capable of using the Ethernet port on the gigabyte switch? If they or some of the printers are connected directly to the switch through an Ethernet cable you may need to configure the device from the I/O menu accessed through the printer setup to activate the Ethernet connection or Jet Direct from the HP printers. You will need to assign a TCP/IP address on the printer which should match the computer's network IP without duplicating the address. If the computer IP address is 192.168.0.1 the printer must use an address which no other computer or device is using, for example, 192.168.0.100 (note you can only change the last number of the IP address).
If you are trying to access printers connected to a port on one of the network computers I need to know if it is a PC or MAC? If it is a PC, I need to know the operating system type i.e. Windows, DOS, Linux, or Unix and version i.e. Windows7, Vista, XP, 98. I will assume Windows XP, which needs to have the printer device marked as Shared. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Right click on the printer you are trying to use and select Sharing. Select Share this printer and give it a share name to help you identify it when shared on the network and click OK. Go to another computer on the network where you want to use the shared printer. Go into start and select printers and faxes. Click on Add a Printer. Click next and select add a network printer. Select browse for a printer and click next. After a few moments, you should see your shared printer with the share name. Select the printer and continue through the rest of the installation. You should be able to use the printer from that computer. If your printer is connected to a computer, you must have that computer on to use it on the network. If your printer is connected to an Ethernet switch you will be able to use the printer as long as the printer and switch is turned on. If this does not help try to be more specific, and I will clarify the instructions.

Correct port from main pc


It doesn't really matter. All ports should do, ports 4 and 5 will just be given priority in some cases - but I'm guessing that you're still using default settings so that's not relevant.

Printer sharing wirh USB hub


I would connect the printer to the main computer, network the 2 computers and enable printer sharing. The only draw back to this is that the main computer will have to be on in order for the other to print. Vista makes this easy to do.

Use two computers with one printer


Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000

CAn't print on one PC


Are you sure it is not recognizing the switch?  Just a thought, but maybe the other computer has not loaded the usb drivers for the printer.  Have you connected the printer directly to the computer to see if you can isolate the problem?
