Don't buy, short lifespan

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: My DGS-2205 worked fine for 13 months, now it just dies every once in a while. The power light stays on, but the port lights go off and the switch is inoperative. It will sometimes come back on it's own, or a power cycle will bring it back to life, but if it won't stay up it is of no use to me.

Good solid product.

  • Summary: I have a DIR-825 Router so I wanted this so it kinda matched although one is black and the other white. There isn't anything to dislike, it's a router, I guess if it went wrong quickly then I'd be un-happy.

Good but failed - two units!

CarNut, Amazon
2 August 2011
  • Summary: Today, the second of our twin units (bought at Amazon in 2009, 2 years 6 months ago) failed. Within 3 weeks of each other. That smacks of planned obsolesence. The units worked fine until - nothing,one yellow light (#5) and the rest blank. Resetting did nothing. I trust d-link and they have good products (we have 6 other of their components here) but this switch is NOT reliable. Sorry D-link.

Easy expansion to my 4-port Linksys router

famousdavis, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: QUICK SUMMARY: I use the Cisco-Linksys WRT320N Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router in my home, but I ran out of ethernet ports with all my connected devices. This easy-to-install network switch solved my problem by expanding the number of available ports in my network. Highly recommended! Background: I had thought to buy a Linksys-branded network switch since I already was using a Linksys router.
