Linksys SD208 8-Port Ethernet Switch (SD208KIT) - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
Not all ports working
Sounds like you may have some wires cross between your switch and your router. And if someone worked on your pc, there probably something wrong with it too. Most places dont know how to fix a computer they just reinstall the OS and hand it back to you, less the unique drivers from your computer mfg for hardware such as network adapter drivers. Connect dirctly to the modem and got to dell support or whomever and check drivers
I bought a new pc,
this is a default check that windows does when a new network is detected "wireless or wired"
you must select the type of network this device is connecting too(public/private/home). for the most part you would select home.
do you get on the internet after choosing one? as either way you should be on the internet
hope this helps

Set up difficulties
You sure can. Start w/ the Comcast modem as long as it is NOT a USB type and hooks using a CAT-5 cable (regular network cable). Hook the comcast modem to the WAN port of the wireless router. On the back of the wireless router use the normal 1-4 extra LAN ports to hook other computers or the SD208 switch to it and other computers from there.
Word of advise if using Wireless Router, be sure to read manual and set a KEY for your network to secure it from unwanted outside use.
Yes, but you'll need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. You could buy a hub or a switch. They are easier to configure and cheaper.
How to Fix Linksys Router Error 2118?
This seems to be a symptom of a configuration error, which can be fixed by resetting the router to factory default. Do this by finding the (often partially hidden) reset button on the device, and pressing and holding down the button, with the power on, till lights start flashing on the router. Let go of the button and allow the router to reset (can take a minute or two). You will now have reset the router to factory default. To connect to your ISP, you'll need to enter your account details (and any other specific information) provided to you by your ISP. You will also have to set a name and password for the wifi section of your router (if it has wifi) if you don't want it to be freely accessible by everyone within wifi range.

Why is my Linksys WRT54G wireless-g router not being recognized anymore?
just fixed one yesterday.
the power pack was no good.AC wall wart,
power green LED blinked endless. and the white logo, LED is dead..
a new pack fixed it.
also the wrong pack used, ! do not mix them up. oops.
first year 54G, v1 uses 5vdc pack.
at v2, and up all want to 12vdc pack,
bottom sticker on above failed was v6.
you said recognized, does that mean the 4 rear Ethernet wired jacks are dead, or just wifi dead.?
first the ethernet ports must work, or wifi is doomed.
