Wonderful switch for small home network

D. Stoddard "Falas Quendi", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: This switch is, simply put, great. It took longer to unwrap, open, and get the parts out the box than it did to get all my network cables plugged in and movies streaming. I have 5 rooms with ports, so this 8-port switch is just enough to have 5 rooms/wireless router/media center/1 left to spare for another room connection in the basement. I've had this switch running for roughly 2 months now and have had zero problems.

earlier hardware version A2, good switch, but warmish, and no vertical stand

Brian H "b23h", Amazon

  • Summary: My switch is an earlier hardware revision, A2. I see no problems with speed. I expect that some of the features of the later (C1) green designation, is already present in my version. It appears to switch off those ports which are not presently in use. Overall I am fairly happy with the switch and have been thinking about replacing it with another later revision.

Killed my net connection speeds

Amazon
26 September 2008
  • Summary: I bought and installed this switch when the previous 5-port D-Link gigabit switch I had in place died. (I also kind of needed the extra ports anyway so the death was a little fortuitous.) As soon as I plugged it in, I saw a dramatic reduction in speeds to the Internet. LAN speeds were fine but WAN download speeds went from >10MBit/s to <2MBit/s. Oddly, upload speeds were unaffected. Several hours of diagnostics and the only hitch appeared to be the new switch.

To help clear things up...

Amazon
4 October 2007
  • Summary: Hi guys/girls, I noticed that the first review for this item quoted what I had written in a review on Newegg so I thought I'd clear up some discrepancies between what users have been writing in recent reviews compared to earlier ones. From what I understand of this product, hardware version 2 has no problems in a mixed network.
