    Rated 4.4 out of 5�by 5 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Great product for small business have used product before. Purchased new one when old one quit working. Product was available in store and quickly available which allowed us to keep network down time to a minimum. October 12, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5�by D Link is a great buy! Internet was faster. I am glad we choose this product. July 8, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5�by Does What It Is Supposed To Do This product is designed to add ports without degrading the network. It does that. No bells and whistles. Easy to install. Reasonable price. July 6, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5�by Great product, could use minor improvements This is a solid 8 port gigabit ether net switch. The led lights clearly show when you have a gigabit connection, and the metal case is a very nice feature. My only complaint is with the rear mounting slot. Some people don't wall mount it, but if you are planning on doing so, and want to mount it vertically meaning it mounts with the ports on the left or right side it doesn't have a slot so that it easily does that. It has two slots for a horizontal mount so that the ports are either on top or on the bottom. However I was able to work around that issue with a little handy work. I wouldn't let that discourage you from this item, but just be aware if wall mounting is important to you, otherwise it's a solid product. June 17, 2015

    • Overview

      The DGS-108 8 Port Gigabit Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch provides a quick, easy and economical way to add high speed networking to home offices and small/medium businesses. With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps the DGS-108 is ideal for fast file transfers, and smooth media streaming. It provides eight Gigabit ports for easy expansion of your network and a quick way to upgrade your network to Gigabit connectivity.
    • Effortless Gigabit Networking

      With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps on Gigabit Ethernet, the D-Link DGS-108 Switch is ideal for transferring files quickly. Easy access front Ethernet ports with two color LED indicators per port allows you to quickly distinguish link status and speed. The switch supports IEEE 802.1p QoS, which organizes and prioritizes time-sensitive and important data for efficient delivery, allowing for smooth media streaming and VoIP calling. Additionally the switch incorporates a Kensington Security Slot on the rear panel allowing users to securely fasten the unit to a table or desk.

      Gigabit Connection for Home and SOHO

      The DGS-108 Switch offers an economical way for SOHO and small/medium businesses to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. It provides eight Gigabit ports for easy expansion of your network and a quick way to upgrade your network to Gigabit connectivity.
    • Think Green

      The DGS-108 is a plug-and-play networking switch that offers D-Link’s Green Technology to save energy and reduce heat, which in turn extends product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. The switch supports IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which detects when a connected computer is shut down or when there is no Ethernet traffic, at which time the switch will automatically power down the idle port, saving a substantial amount of power. In addition, the switch can also save energy by detecting the cable length and using only as much power as necessary. Working together these features drastically reduce power consumption and heat dissipation, resulting in extended life and substantial cost savings.

      IEEE 802.1p QoS

      QoS prioritizes network traffic so that time-sensitive data is delivered efficiently, even during bursts of high data traffic. This helps ensure an optimal experience for streaming media and VoIP calls.

      Environmentally Friendly

      The DGS-108 Switch was designed with the environment in mind. It is compliant with Energy Star Level V, CEC, and MEPS regulations which require the use of energy efficient power adapters. Built to comply with RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials and is packaged with an EnergyStar Level V qualified power adapter all in a recyclable packaging making this product truly environmental friendly.
    • Cable Diagnostics Function

      The D-Link Cable Diagnostics Function enables users to be instantly aware of cable conditions through the LED display on the front-panel. Users can determine whether the pin connections of their cable connectors are correct, facilitating prompt network troubleshooting if required.
