Ok you've done something that I'm not real sere that you wanted to do. You're trying to connect a gateway/modem to a layer 2 highly configureable web switch. It may/may not require any crossover cables this canbe determined later.
First however you the 100WR must be configured A) Plug-in the power B) Plugin a "4" wire telephone cable this may not be nessarry however I do not know anything about your service provider and a few do require this also make sure that there is no alarm system on the same line or you will have to call your phone company or alarm company. plug the telephone line from the wall to the 1000WR now you should get not only the power light but the internet/adsl light now on the back of the 1000WR is a series of 4 or so ethernet ports. Connect an ethernet cable between the port and your computer you will see that your computer will try to get a connection how it shows it will be some kind of network signal on microsoft products, also a light will light on the 1000WR if not get a crossover.To go any furter is a shot in the dark what I need is what is your operating system the reason you are useing a layer 2 web switch (bet you paid a lot for it) and who we are connceting to

How can we cascade 2 switches.


Looking at a picture of the switch, it appears that there isn't a crossover port. In which case in order for you to link the two, you would have to use a crossover cable and not a regular patch cable.

Does the D-Link DES 1016D 16x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch accept either of strait-through or crossover cat 5e cable configuration to NICs?


Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover
All ports support auto-negotiating MDI/MDIX detection, which eliminates the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. The DES-1016D is the perfect choice for Plug-&-Play support for 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T networks.

See -->> http://www.d-link.co.za/des-1016d.php for further specs.

Hope this helps.

I have two des-1005d network switches. i want to communicate betwwen them with a cat5e cable. the cable is made as cross through and distance is about 70 meters. with one switch pc is connected and at...


Max distance for Cat5e cable is about 100M, but that is the best case scenario, essentially a straight line, down a building. If you have any kind of interference, like flourescent lighting, high voltage lines running parallel to the ethernet cable, the distance will be much less than 100M. Although it looks like you have 60 feet to spare, anything interfering with the cables will cut the signal down. Try to move the switches closer together, make the cable from pc to switch longer and ADSL modem to switch longer and cable between switches shorter. Use a known good straight through ethernet cable, as modern switches don't require crossover cables.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_5e#Maximum_cable_segment_length

According to the ANSI/TIA/EIA standard for category 5e cable, (TIA/EIA 568-5-A[5]) the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 meters (328 feet). If longer runs are required, the use of active hardware such as a repeater, or a switch, is necessary.[6] [7] This 100 meter limit is all inclusive. According to some authors,[who?] the practical limit for permanently installed cable is about 90 meters, leaving 5 meters at each end for the patch cables that connect the end equipment to the wall panel.

Hope this helps.

Make sure your not using a crossover through cable. Also make sure your not connecting the cable into the internet port, which is usually the first or last port.
  • A straight-thru cable has identical ends.
  • A crossover cable has different ends.
  • A straight-thru is used as a patch cord in Ethernet connections.
  • A crossover is used to connect two Ethernet devices without a hub or for connecting two hubs.
  • A crossover has one end with the Orange set of wires switched with the Green set.

Linksys 5-port switch


When connecting a switch/router to another switch a specially-wired crossover ethernet cable is necessary, unless both units are designed to automatically determine whether they need to operate in crossover or "uplink" mode. This is more than likely the problem you are encountering.

Pc's say a network cable is unplugged


First, NO, crossover cables are for connecting LIKE devices.. you need a Straight Thru cable for connecting 2 PCs to a switch.. So, if you are using Crossovers, then you are getting the correct results (cable unplugged). Replace with the proper cables, and it should see the network fine..

Not making a connection to broadband router


Hi, If I understand you right, you installed a hub after your router, all your PCS are connected to the hub and it is working. Then you should not be concerned, first, you did right, second, as long as it works and isn't slow or disconnecting then no issues. A few buts: 1. If your router has 4 ports, then you don't need the CP3008a and 2. why only "2 lights on cp3008a" if you have 2 PCS + the router, you should have 3 lights; At the end of the day,if it works and you have no complain, let it be. Kind regards.

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx
