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

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.

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.
