Summary: Received my switch yesterday. Plugged 4 devices into it and just like that, everything was connected. Very easy setup and much faster internet speeds on all my devices. Great for gaming, whether playing or downloading and updating games. No more stalling when streaming video which was very annoying. Good inexpensive fix. Would definitely recommend.
Summary: I have yet to see one of these even need to be rebooted, much less fail and we have installed dozens over the last 18 months in some less than optimal environments. The firmware is sold and has been updated as needed (most recent is about 4 months ago). I don't understand most peoples issues with this router, I have had no negatives with them whatsoever.
Pros: Super easy to install, although the Save then Commit and Activate can be confusing the first few times. Plenum rated, can legally be put in most false ceilings and air returns. Range and throughput are excellent, even with multiple SSIDs and VLANs active simultaneously these have always held up and performed well even in extreme cold/heat of North Dakota (-30F to 140F in some attics and other installations). They just work, and come with power supplies as well as capa...
Cons: Not really "Dual Band", well not simultaneously, you need to select either 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz, it will not do both at the same time.
Excellent product! Reliable and fast switch, the top for NAS

Summary: Excellent product! Reliable and fast switch, grants more than 50 Megabyte per second of rate transfer between my Synology Ds 413j NAS, and the network (PC and mediaplayers). Recommented for everyone!
Summary: I bought this as a companion to the sister units (DGS-1008G (same as this one, only 8 ports)) that I have already. They're 100% compatible with each other and have all the same features so it was a no-brainer to select this one. they have provided me with almost 2 years of trouble free operation.
Summary: Works perfect no problems at all. I simply needed to be able to connect the cable between the modem and the wireless router and still be able to have cable Internet. I didn't have to do anything for it to work and I'm very satisfied. (As opposed to another wireless router I tried).
Summary: I purchased 2 of these for a medium sized home network, using the D-Link cloud router with them - the router that looks cylindrical in shape. The router alone gave network improvement, but to complete the gigabit network requires everything being gigabit, including these switches and gigabit network cards. Once setup, I noticed more improvement, and streaming video was considerably faster. It was good, and I believe the price to have been worth it.
Summary: This is a companion switch to my D-Link 8-port switch in the living room on my entertainment rack. I have it on the rack in my bedroom so I can stream content to/from my living room DVR. It's nice and quiet and puts out little light so it doesn't affect my sleep. All my bedroom devices plug into it: Blu-Ray, DVR, and TV.
