Summary: Simple and straightforward setup. Seems to work perfectly. It is very lightweight--cord tensions tip it to an angle. I decided to mount the unit on a wall. I deducted one star for mounting difficulty: The screw holes require almost-impossible precision, perhaps to within 1/64-in. (0.2 mm). Despite extreme care, I was unable to get the screws spaced to the needed precision and didn't want to make new holes with repeated attempts.
Summary: Works perfectly. Only negative is that the power cord comes off the side rather than the back with everything else. Would have been better for cord management if everything entered/left device from same place.
Summary: The D-Link DGS-1008G 8-Port switch is a great addition for those looking to increase the number of ports is a particular location. I use this switch is my office where I have Cat 6 cable link to my D-Link Router which also switches at 1 GB. The switch is easy to setup (connect ports and plug in). It correctly identified the connections as either 100 MB (yellow LED) or 1 GB (green LED).
