You can upload a new Boot Image and/or new Firmware to your D-Link DWS/DXS-32xx switches in stacking mode all in one attempt.

Please log in to the master switch and follow these instructions:

Step 1 Please type the following command to upload the latest boot version.
If you are already running the latest boot code please skip this step and upload the firmware.

DWS/DXS-32xx# copy tftp://{tftp server ip}/{boot file} unit://*/boot

Please do not reboot the switch at this time

Step 2 Please run the following command to upload the latest firmware.
DWS/DXS-32xx# copy tftp://{tftp server ip}/{image file} unit://*/image

Remember to copy both boot and image files before rebooting the stack.( If applicable)
Since firmware always gets uploaded on the non-active partition you need to run the
following command for each switch.

DWS/DXS-32xx# boot system unit 8 image-2

This is an example considering that this is 8th unit of the stack and non active
image is 2.
You need to run this command for every switch of the stack.

If you want to limit a certain VLAN’s incoming bandwidth usage, for instance to limit a guest VLAN’s download speed.

Step 1: Login in to your DSR. Click Advanced in top menu bar. Once the page has refreshed, in the left hand menu, hover over Advanced Network then Traffic Management, then click Bandwidth Profiles.

Step 2: If you have not already done so, you will need to tick the “Enable Bandwidth Profiles” tickbox, then click Save Settings. Click Add to create the inbound traffic limit.

Step 3: Name the Profile, for instance if you are creating the profile for VLAN 2 inbound traffic, you could name it VLAN2_Inbound. Change the Profile Type to “Rate”. In the Minimum Bandwidth Rate box, type the minimum bandwidth you would like that VLAN to get. This can be set to any value between 1Kbps and the Maximum Bandwidth Rate value. Set the Maximum Bandwidth Rate. This can be any value from 100Kbps to 1000000Kbps. Set the LAN Interface to be the LAN you want to limit bandwidth for.


Step 4: Click Save Settings to save this profile.

Step 5: You need to define a custom service for use in step 7. On the left hand menu, hover over Firewall Settings then click Custom Services.

Step 6: Click Add. In Name put “CS_ANY”. For Type select “Both”. Leave Port Type as “Port Range”. In Start Port put “1”, in Finish Port put “65535”.

Click Save Settings to save this setting.

Step 6: Hover over Advanced Network then Traffic Management then click Traffic Selectors

Click Add

Step 7: In the Available Profiles box, select the Profile we created earlier, in this case “VLAN_250_Inbound”. In theService box, select the service we created in Step 5 “CS_ANY”. In the Traffic Selector Match Type box, select IP. In the IP Address box type “”. In the Subnet Mask box, type “”.


Click Save Settings to save this traffic selector, and limit incoming traffic for all IP addresses on this VLAN.

NOTE – The recovery process will need the following:

• Console Cable
• tftp server
• Firmware – Download the latest firmware on our website
• PuTTy

Step 1 – Connect the serial port of the DSR with your PC and an Ethernet cable to a port on the DSR and connected to a switch on the same network

Step 2 – Open the tftp server and put the firmware of the DSR into the root folder

For example: C:\Program Files\Tftpd64


Step 3 – Open PuTTy and setup a COM port with the following settings:


Step 4 – Once configured, click on “Open” to show the following:

Step 5 – Once you see the boot process and see the message “Hit any key to stop autoboot:” hit the enter key to enter the bootloader#


Set the environment variables (Copy and paste into CLI):

Step 6 – Enter the following command to set the DSR to the subnet of host


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv ipaddr

Step 7 – Enter the following command to the IP of the host where the tftp resides


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv serverip

Step 8 – Enter the following command to set all tftp transfers on LAN ports


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv ethact octeth0

Step 9 – Enter the following command to firmware flash and erase


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv firm_flash ‘erase BDCA0000 BF99FFFF; cp.b 0xaa00000 BDCA0000 1D00000’

Step 10 – Enter the following command to boot firmware

D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv boot_firm ‘cp.b BDCA0000 0xaa00000 900000; bootoctlinux 0xaa00200 mtdparts=phys_mapped


o setenv bootcmd ‘run boot_firm’

Step 11 – Enter the following command to sabe


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# saveenv

TFTP the image and flash it:

Step 12 – Enter the following command:


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# tftp 0xAA00000 DSR-1000N_A1_FW1.09B61_WW (this is the FULL name of the firmware as shown below)


You should also notice the tftp server starting the file transfer (if not, make sure the firewall is disabled or an antivirus program is not blocking)


Step 13 – Enter the following command to run flash firmware and wait until complete


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# run firm_flash

Step 14 – Enter the following command to boot firmware


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# run boot_firm

Once the flashing of the image is complete, you will see the u-boot prompt again. At this moment you can now power cycle the DSR.

Step 15 – Login


DSR-1000N login: admin
Password: admin

Installing Power Cord Clip

To prevent accidental removal of the AC power cord, it is recommended to install the power cord clip together with the power cord.


1. With the rough side facing down, insert the Tie Wrap into the hole below the power socket.
2. Plug the AC power cord into the power socket of the Switch.
3. Slide the retainer through the Tie Wrap until the end of the cord.
4. Circle the tie of the retainer around the power cord and into the locker of the retainer.
5. Fasten the tie of the retainer until the power cord is secured.

Mount on a Rack

The D-Link GO-SW-16GE can easily be mounted on a rack. Two mounting ears are provided for this purpose. Make sure that the front panel is exposed in order to view the LEDs.

1. Attach the ears to each side of the switch, using the screw-holes located on the side of the device.
2. Firmly attach the ears to the rack. Please follow the usual safety precautions for rack-mountable products.

Connecting the Switch

Step 1

Plug the supplied power cord into the Switch and the other end into a power outlet, power strip, or surge protector (recommended). Verify the Power indicator is lit on the Switch.

Step 2

Connect one end of an Ethernet cable in the device you want to connect to the Switch and the other end into one of the Ethernet ports on the Switch. Check the Link lights (LEDs) on both the Switch and the device to verify that the cable is good and that there is a valid connection.

D-Link GO-SW-16GE Desktop or Rackmount Switch

Note: A Category 5 (or higher) Ethernet cable must be used for 100Mbps or higher operation.

D-Link Green Technology

D-Link Green Technology implements special power-saving features that detect link status and adjust power usage accordingly. Green Technology saves energy in a specific way:

1. If there is no link on a port (when there is no connection or the device connected is turned off) the port(s) will enter a “sleep mode” which will drastically reduce the amount of power used.
