IEEE 802.1P QoS

QoS prioritizes network traffic so that time-sensitive data is delivered efficiently, even during bursts of high data traffic. This helps ensure an optimal experience for streaming media, VoIP calls, and online gaming.

Cable Diagnostics Function

The D-link cable Diagnostics function enables you to efficiently detect cable conditions through the LED display on the front-panel. You can determine whether the pin connections of your cables' connectors are correct, facilitating network troubleshooting.

Think Green

Combined with an efficient power adapter that is EnergyStar level V qualified, minimized the use of harmful substances (RoHS compliant) in the device and enclosed in recyclable packaging.

Conserves Energy

The DGS-1005G 5-port Gigabit Switch helps you conserve energy automatically through several methods. It automatically powers down ports that have no link activity, allowing the switch to save energy by cutting power usage for unused ports or ports connected to computers that have been shut down. It can also detect connected cable lengths and adjust power usage accordingly, helping you save energy without effecting networking performance.

The 5-port Gigabit Switch was designed with the environment in mind. It is compliant with energy Star level V, as well as with the strict CEC and MEPS regulations that require the use of energy efficient power adapters. The switch is also built to follow RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials, and uses recyclable packaging that helps reduce waste, complying with the WEEE directive.

Customer Reviews

It runs very cool and the wall mount option is very nice for keeping things organized.
S. DOPIERALA
Bought this to use in our home office because our wireless router was in another room so we used a internet cable from our wireless router to this and it works great.

They give great gigabit speeds and are of course backwards compatible with slower 10/100 Mbps networks.

I was looking for a small, low-power, reliable little 8-port gigabit enabled switch with auto mdi/mdix.. and I found it. The unit runs very cool, is completely silent, and sits eloquently in the background. Before I purchased this, I reviewed Linksys (aka Cisco), Trendnet, HP, and a few others options for aggregate throughput, buffer RAM, power usage, etc.

The Dlink DGS-1008G is right at the top of the pack with 16Gbps backplane and 11.9 million packets per second, which roughly translates to .703 Gigabits of sustained throughput, which should be around 87.875MBps (MegaBytes, not bits). Keep in mind that 1Gbps = 125MB of throughput. Not any consumer switches I have found out there that can sustain this data rate. This is one of the highest throughput switches available in 8-port consumer, with HP and Trendnet second and third (in that order).

Worked perfect out of the box. I made up a few more Cat5e cables and away I went. Now if Dlink would only combine this switch with a wireless router and a WAN port!!! THAT would be awesome.

Update 06-26-11: Now that I have had time to test this out, I can get about 84-85 Megabytes per second of throughput, close to the numbers i mentioned above. Tested using iperf/jperf with TCP/UDP. Make sure to set all devices to jumbo frames to get this throughput. I went into network adapter settings and changed the default packet size to 9K MTU. Changed my Synology NAS for 9K also.

Connected and ran fine, died in just 35 days. The device is on a UPS and APCC CAT 5 network protection. I have three other D-link devices no issues of earlier models. I am not impressed with this model. Tech support was a joke. I substituted a known good switch but D-Link support (a person who could barely speak English) kept trying to follow a trouble shooting script. After 15 minutes of trying to communicate the issue, the phone connection dropped. Another call back to finally have a support person issue an RMA via email. I received the RMA information. You pay the return (about $12 for shipping). You will get a repaired/refurb product in return. I paid $35 for the D-Link and it is on sale now for $27. I would not pay another $12 for a bad product set and wait 2 to 4 weeks for the turn-around. Instead, I bought the Net Gear for $39 less $18 rebate, less $12 not paid to ship back the D-Link plus $.50 to mail rebate slip; net cash flow cost is $17.50 and the Net Gear will arrive in 2 days. I will not buy another D-Link device.

4/15/2013: The saga continues. What the heck, I just installed the new Netgear and it runs great. So for laughs, I went through the D-Link RMA process only to discover that the D-Link Limited Lifetime Warranty is a laugh a minute. If you want to RMA the switch, you must send back everything that was included in the original box or face additional charges for missing items as follows:

"Please ship your product to:
D-Link Systems, Inc.
2901 South Harbor Blvd
Santa Ana, CA 92704
Please be sure to include the following items:
1 x DGS-1005G
1 x AC Power Adapter ($10.00)
1 x Mounting Screws ($10.00)
1 x QIG ($5.

This is a fantastic product. It's hard for some reason to find a good Gigabit Switch. Most consumer switches are 10/100, not 10/100/1000, and they sell for the same price or more than the D-Link. Prior to this, I was using several Dell 2708 switches. They ran flawlessly but are large and heavy (and made of metal). This product is tiny, mostly plastic, light, and runs cool. I also like the power saving features. The D-Link 5-port Switches, at half the price, are an excellent value.

Going from a NetGear to this was like moving from Detroit to the Swiss Alps. Nice and small, yet great build quality. Internet performance is more solid than with other switches I've tried over the years. One huge plus is, it doesn't get hot like the others. Good job D-Link another top-notch product.

I have four D-Link switches. Two of them are this model and they have all worked fine until this one failed yesterday. It comes with a 'lifetime warranty' or so they say.

After over an hour trying to understand one of their phone techs (well, I don't hear so well so it's not entirely her fault), I was e-mailed a link where I can setup an RMA. When I read that they expect not only the unit itself and the power brick but also the CD-Rom and 'bracket' (which I must have thrown out because I didn't really need a bracket), I assumed I could send them what I do have with a note and things would be handled according to the normal give and take that prevails or ought to prevail. So I drove to the Post Office and got a flat rate box with which to return this stuff, checked my e-mail before going back out the door to mail it and found another e-mail from D-Link with a little reminder which I quote:

Please be sure to include the following items:
1 x DGS-1008G
1 x AC Power Adapter ($10.00)
1 x CD-Rom (manual, QIG, drivers) ($12.00)
1 x Bracket ($20.00)
1 x Copy of Proof Of Purchase
Please return all listed bill of materials, failure to do so will result in the billing of your credit card for the missing parts at standard replacement pricing.

This is not subtle. And, by the way, what do they know about my credit card? What's going on here?

Go ahead and buy this product, be happy with it and when it fails, buy a new one. The warranty is just an invitation to play games with D-Link.

And it did fail.

UPDATE: In the end, I did send the broken switch back to D-Link and I'll give you both the good and bad on that. The good is that they did send me a replacement and it works.
