- Eight Fast Ethernet LAN ports for high-speed wired connections
- Compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE)
- D-Link Green Technology features power-saving by link status and by cable length
- Auto-sensing ports automatically detect network connections and adjust accordingly
Wired Network Setup Made Faster
The DES-1008A 8-Port 10/100 Switch is an 8-port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet switch that allows you to quickly set up a wired network. Use the DES-1008A to connect multiple computers together to share files and folders, or connect it to a router to share an Internet connection.
Auto-sensing 10/100 Ports
The D-Link DES-1008A 8-Port 10/100 Switch uses auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet and Fast Ethernet devices to create an integrated network. These ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, as well as between full and half-duplex, allowing you to get the maximum speed possible for each device connected to your network.
Flow Control for Secure Transmission
802.3x flow control on each port minimizes dropped packets when the port’s receiving buffer is full. This gives you a more reliable connection for all of your connected devices, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted network connection.
All ports support auto-MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be directly connected to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
