When useing D-Link DGS-1016D switch,if the link speed is not 1.0 Gbps, than the cabling between the two endpoints should be examined. If using Gigabit over Copper (1000 Base-T) than you can use Ethernet cable Cat 5 or better (Cat5E, Cat6 or Cat6E). If the cable is pinned improperly, than the network connection will not run at gigabit speeds. Gigabit over copper uses all 8 wires of the Ethernet cable.

If you are using a store bought/factory pinned cable, and the connection speed is still not connecting at 1.0 Gbps, there may be a bent/broken pin on either the NIC, or the switch port. Isolate each portion of the possible problem, until you are able to find the defective port on the network. This can be done by using known good gigabit ports, and cabling.
