The DES-1008 8-Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Desktop Switch is an 8-port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet switch that allows you to quickly set up a wired network. Connect the DES-1008 to multiple computers together to share files and folders, or connect it to a router to share an Internet connection.
Eight Fast Ethernet LAN ports for high-speed wired connections
IEEE802.3az EEE Power-saving compliance
D-Link Green Technology features power-saving by link status and by cable length
Auto-sensing ports automatically detect network connections and adjust accordingly
Auto-sensing 10/100 Ports
The D-Link DES-1008A 8-Port 10/100 Switch uses auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet and Fast Ethernet devices to create an integrated network. These ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, as well as between full and half-duplex, allowing you to get the maximum speed possible for each device connected to your network.
Auto MDI/MDIX Cross Over
All ports support automatic MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be plugged directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
Flow Control for Secure Transmission
802.3x flow control on each port minimizes dropped packets when the port’s receiving buffer is full. This gives you a more reliable connection for all of your connected devices, ensuring smooth and uninterrupted network connection.
