Even a cheap switch should accommodate different speeds and duplexes on
all ports. I would plug all devices into the switch regardless of speed.
In your case my only concern would be the switch trying to
auto-negotiate with your D-Link router. It should work, but from what I
gather the D-Link is buggy.
If you are not using the d-link as a router why no toss it and connect
the printer to the same computer that dials out? I am not trying to
cause trouble. It just don't like buggy hardware.
