DGS-1024D Daisy Chaining not working
« on: April 05, 2017, 11:23:45 AM »

I have a router upstairs connected to a non Dlink 4 port switch that is then going to my Dlink DGS-1024D downstairs.  i can get no internet connection on the Dlink.  when i go back to my old setup of connecting a 5 port switch  downstairs i get a connection immediately. 
 
is there a special port that must be connected with the active ethernet cable into the DGS-1024D for it to be daisy chained? 

any ideas or suggestions as to what the problem could be?

Whats the Mfr and model of the non 4 port switch?

What happens if you place the 1024D switch in place of the non Dlink 4 port switch?

In addition to what Furry asked, are you getting link lights on the D-link switch?

When connected can you ping your router?

ok my upstairs switch is a TRENDnet 5-Port Unmanaged Gigabit

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HH0W5W/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

before i would just daisy chain this upstairs switch to 3 more daisy chained trendnet switches downstairs.  i purchased the Dlink to take up less space and use less plugs on my power strip. 

i haven't tried moving the dlink upstairs because i just assumed there would be no problems since everything worked with the Trendnet switches and i mounted the 24 port Dlink already.  i really don't want to take it all down to try it upstairs if necessary.

i got static green lights on the Dlink but nothing blinking

could the Dlink possibly not be getting a connection to my devices because i'm using static IP's on these devices?  that is one thing i thought of to try before moving the dlink upstairs

Have you tried pinging your router? Try connecting your computer in one port and another device to another port and see if traffic is going through it.

I assume you are using the same cables that you used with the trendnet switch to the D-Link.

You having static IPs should not make a difference since this is an unmanaged switch. It should just plug in and work.

Did you change any of the DIP switches? If you set "port isolation/storm control" to ON, plug the cable to the router in port 24. Ports 1-23 will be isolated from each other. It should be off by default.

ok, moving to port 24 fixed everything thank you so much.

for some reason all of my settings on the dlink switch are set to ON right out of the box, i never touched them.  perhaps this is because i got a refurbished unit off of Amazon.  is there any reason i should switch them away from being ON now that it is working?  i really don't understand what switching any of those white toggles actually does

The information is in the quick install guide (page 3) that should have come with the unit. If not, you can go to http://support.dlink.com/dgs-1024d and select which hardware revision you have and view/download the QIG there.

IEEE - Enables/Disable IEEE 802.az EnergyEfficient Ethernet Feature (on by default)

Flow Control - On or Off (on by default) - from wiki -  Flow control is the process of managing the rate of data transmission between two nodes to prevent a fast sender from overwhelming a slow receiver.

Port Isolation and Storm Control - (off by default)   When enabled, a broadcast storm control threshold value of 128 kbps will be applied to incoming broadcast packets on all ports.  Also ports 1 to 23 will be isolated from each other, but will still be able to communicate with port 24. Port 24 will be able to communicate with all the ports available on this switch.

If you do change a DIP switch, you will need to power cycle the switch for it to take effect.
