In any case, it's probably that this switch failed and stopped working properly or it has a defect. It would have been so much easier if it had just completely failed.... then the problem would have been much easier to find.
Background: I had thought to buy a Linksys-branded network switch since I already was using a Linksys router. But this D-Link was less expensive than a comparable Linksys network switch, and it's been around long enough that D-Link has revised the hardware architecture several times to improve their product. My only concern was, "Will this D-Link play well with my Linksys router?" The answer is, "YES!"
WHAT I LIKE:
- It's stupid easy to install. Plug in the switch, connect it to the router using an ethernet cable. There, done. (You can plug it into any of the five ports on this network switch).
- Inexpensive! Saved me a few dollars over the Linksys brand.
- It has gigabit ethernet, so it's compatible with my gigabit router.
- Seems green. The product literature and box boast about how energy-saving it is.
What Could Be BETTER:
- It's not a stylish piece of hardware. But then, it's just a lowly network switch.
- The CD that comes with it is really useless. When I see a CD, I immediately think I'm supposed to install some software. The enclosed CD just has the electronic copy of the user's manual and little else.
Note: Since you're using one of the five ports to connect this switch to your router, and since you're giving up one of your ports on the router to connect to this network switch, your net gain is really just 3 ports on a 5 port switch. I had 4 ports on my router, but now only 3 of them are connected to devices other than this network switch. I have four available ports on the switch after connecting to the router. So, instead of a 4-port router, I've got a 7-port router + network switch. If you think you'll need more than a 3-port net gain, go for a bigger network switch.
CONCLUSION: This network switch simply works, and it's not expensive, either. Recommended!
Wireless schmireless, cables work. Read all the reviews, understood about 30% of them but got the general idea how an ethernet switch works. Only needed 3 ports, but 4 was the smallest so I ordered the D-Link DGS-2205. Very easy to hook up, truly plug and use. No heat from unit, status lights are clean and understandable, all-in-all a nice unit.
One small complaint, the instruction CD sent with the unit, way too complicated. I suppose there are some network set-ups that would require the 33 pages of instructions. However a simple home set-up paragraph of "plug this into this, and when these lights come on its working", would have been helpful for us ranchland types.
I like the dual lighting system to identify which ports are working at 1000 mbps and which ones are working at 100 mbps.
There is no noise and the switch is not hot to the touch like older previous gigabit switches were.
Transfer rates seem to be double what I got on FastEthernet. Of course, I am just copying and pasting with Windows Explorer which has a lot of wasteful overhead. Still, I am pleased that I am getting better performance.
I did a lot of research before buying this switch. The DLink 2205 doesn't seem to have a history of networking gear dying about the time the warranty is up like netgear and even linksys now, so I hope this one lasts past the warranty period. As networking gear has gotten cheaper and cheaper, so has the life expectancy of the gear.
I recommend this unit based on the price and the performance so far.
