Hello
Connections should go.Main internet to router,then from router to dynex switch,then to pc or pcs.
There is no main internet ethernet port, as this is just a switch.You need a Router before the dynex switch.

We have a Linksys SRW2048 48-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch. The problem is, that we can't get a connection on the 8 ports on the very right side. What could be the problem, how can we solve it?


Disconnect all the Ethernet cables from all the ports.
Connect one of those eight "bad" ports to your laptop.
See if the port works when it is the ONLY active port.
If not, move the cable to the next of the eight "bad" ports, and test again. Repeat.
Move the cable to one of the 40 "good" ports, and test.
If it works, then you have a hardware problem with that "group" of 8 ports.

Your choice to use only the 40 "good" ports, or to replace the router, if you need those last 8 ports.

Hi I would like o hook up a netgear prosafe 8port gigabit switch to my pc and run an ethernet cable which is allready hardwired to my sony bluray player so I can enjoy netflix


It would be much easier to use a simpler device, namely any Netgear 10/100 wireless router.

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> Router's WAN port

Router's LAN port #1 --> your desktop computer
Router's LAN port #2 --> your Sony player
Router's wireless adapter --> your iPod Touch's WiFi adapter

Since the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) is only delivering 5 to 25 Mbits/second to your router,
unless you are paying a _lot_ of money per month to your ISP,
there's no need to buy/use expensive "gigabit" equipment.

One of the LED is orange instead of green


I also have the DGS-1008D 8-port switch and it connects fine at gigabit speeds between my 5 PC's - I would check the cabling again, as mine was plug and play. As soon as it was hooked up and switched on, I got the green light for the gigabit connection - my 100mb router (also D-Link) connects with an orange light, as it cannot achieve gigabit speed.


Hi there and thanx for the reply.
I have connected PC's with the gigabit cards to the point where the one machine connects at 1Gig. All machines connect at 1 Gig at that specific point. So it is either the cables itself or the connection in the jack itself problem

Linksys SRW2008P 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch Currently two of the ports do not work, can anyone help?


Not much you can do when you have dead ports on a switch but just to replace the whole switch. The cost of having someone take it apart and repair/replace the dead ports will probably cost more than a new switch.

What wires go into the back of the Dynex 5 Port 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch?


A switch is a device for networking computers printers or other devices with an ethernet port. Most common scenario would be to hook a cat5 cable from your broadband router's lan port to Port 1 and then connect your other ethernet devices to the remaining ports. In order for the devices to cmmunicate you'll want to make sure that they are on the same ip subnet. Usually, 192.168.1.x.
Your router may be 192.168.1.1, your PC 192.168.1.100 Printer 192.168.1.101. Each device needs a unique IP address.
Hope that helps.

Linksys SRW2008 blocking ports


blocking ports and QoS is a layer 3 function, switches are layer 2 unless you buy a layer two switch. You will need to do this on your router.

Open a web browser an put the IP address of your switch in the addresse bar. Once in the web interface, open the Monitoring folder and then click the Port Utilization link. The switch is actually creating graphics of each port utilization.
