More Information

  • Ideal for creating a small network and connect computers, wireless Access Points, IP cameras, network printers and other Ethernet devices quickly and easily without complicated configurations.
  • Its fanless design makes this switch completely silent, ideal for offices, libraries or meeting rooms.
  • Despite being an unmanaged, Plug and Play switch, the DES-105 is able to classify network traffic by assessing the 802.1p field in the Ethernet frames, and forward them out of its ports depending on their priority. This allows for a smooth integration of video, voice and data traffic without delays or loss of quality.
  • This switch implements the 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard, which can save a substantial amount of energy by detecting the port status, putting them in low-power, stand-by mode when no network traffic is detected.
  • The sturdy metal housing will protect the switch against accidental harm, while helping to dissipate heat and to reduce stress on internal components.
  • The visible LEDs allow for an easy reading of each port status, helping to troubleshoot connectivity problems.
  • For a convenient placement, this switch comes with a wall mounting kit and a slot for a Kensington security lock to protect it from theft.

Works Perfectly

Excellent hub. I've used these for years in business. Be aware of the 10/100 rate of the device. Many ISP's are offering bandwidth in excess of 100 Mbps these days.

Great Value Great Performance

I was originally looking for a Ethernet hub to connect my LCD TV and new Apple TV box to my home LAN and internet. I find that a hard cable connection is more reliable than using wireless LAN for large video and picture transfers. When I realized this switch would do the job, I bought one at a great price from Best Buy online. It's easy to install and seems to work very well in the few weeks I have had it. [...]
