D-Link Ethernet Switch Lights Flashing and No Internet

Hi, I have a D-Link DSS-5+ Ethernet Switch and a Network Everywhere wireless router. For the past two days, all the lights on my D-Link switch have been flashing rapidly and I have no internet connection on any of my computers. If I plug the dsl cable directly from my model to one of my computers, I have an internet connection. Yesterday, after about 4 hours of lights flashing, they suddenly stopped and were solid. I had no problems for the rest of the day. This morning, same problem, lights flashing rapidly and no internet. This is causing me major problems because I work from home and need to start working at 7:00am. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
DJ

    Thanks for the input. My first thought was the power supply, however the power light is the only light that doesn't flash. Unfortunately, I don't have another power supply to try. When I came home from work tonight, lights were still flashing and no internet. About a half hour later, they stopped flashing and the internet started working all by itself. I don't want to buy a new router unless I'm sure it's going to fix the problem. Any other thoughts would be appreciated.



    Thanks,

    Dana

You seem to have a problem with the switch or its power supply. If you have another D-Link device with the same power supply (see the volts and amps on the sticker), we may try switching them.

I one had a problem very similar to yours and changing the power supply solved the problem.

    Unfortunately there is not much else to try than a spare part since this kind of switch is very simple.



    If your switch is still under warranty (1 year) you may call D-Link's tech support. If it is out of warranty, you may try to buy a new one (exact same model) in a store that has a 30-day money back policy and try the new power supply. If it works, return the switch (be honnest and return the working power supply too) and call D-Link part department to get a replacement, I think it cost around 20$.

Same thing happened to me all you have to do is remove all the cables attached to your switch then reconnect it, the lights will stop blinking progressively and the switch will be fine again

One possible solution, I have seen this many times on various small desktop switches, is that a slight power flicker will lock them up. Power cycling(unplug power for about 10 secs) the switch should fix the issue, and a good power-conditioning battery backup will prevent it.

Has anyone come up with a solution yet? Does a D-link-5+ switching device have to be programed to the Broadband Router? If so how do you do it?

Lots of flashing except the power light with no internet.
This use to work fine,do they go bad after so much use? Lots of Questions ,but does anyone have any answers.

Posted on Feb 05, 2010

I have four of these switches and three of them have the same problem as yours. The power supplies were not the problem because my known good switch would work with them.

Hi there,
The LAN lights will only turn on once you have an Ethernet cable connected to it and the other end of the cable is connected to a working computer.
If you already have a computer connected to the Ethernet port of the router via an Ethernet cable and the lights are still off. Check if the computer you have connected recognizes a network via LAN.
If the lights on the router are still off and the computer doesn't recognize a network then that means that the port for the ethernet of your Router is bad and sadly there's no way of getting that fixed but to have the router replaced.
Otherwise if the lights are off and the computer recognizes the Network and lets you connect to the internet or other computers on the same network then its just the LED of the LAN light that's broken and I think you can live with that.
Hope this helps!

My wifi or wireless is not working. I have disconnected the router twice, hoping to rebout correctly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Kelly


If you connect the computer straight with your router with the help of LAN cable, then are you able to go online?
If yes then you may visit this website and chat with some technician online so that they can give you exact steps to follow.

I have cable internet and how would i connect the DGL-4500 wireless router to cable???


Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on the cable-modem to the 'WAN' or 'Internet' port on the router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the 4 'LAN' ports on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Wait for its lights to settle-down to a repeatable pattern.
Turn the router on.

On your computer, you should have Internet access.

Want to connect aDI-604UP wired router to a DIR-615 wireless router to use as a printer port wirelessly


Hello Richard.

For this, you have two types of connection
1. LAN_LAN (ethernet to ethernet) -->wireless router is acting as a switch
2. LAN_WAN (ethernet to internet)-->wireless router is acting as a wireless router

in this case, you need the LAN_LAN connection

Physical connection:
plug an ethernet cable from the ethernet port on the wired router and connect the other end of that cabl to the ethernet port on the wireless router

Configuration:
log-on to the setup page of the wireless router, do this while the wired router is turned off.
-open your internet browser, type 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. Then type the username & password for the router ( default admin as the username, password : ).
Under the setup tab, click manual configuration. Then click network settings, change the router ip address to 192.168.0.5 & disable the DHCP server. save the settings. Just personalize the wireless network.

Hope this helps.

Make sure you're using a crossover ethernet cable to connect the router to the switch. Also make sure that the router has it's DHCP server up and running.

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

you need to make sure that DHCP is enabled in the router settings and that your network cards TCP/IP is set to obtain an ip address automatically.

Also check that your computers workgroup is the same as your friends eg, Home or Workgroup.
