5-Port Gigabit Switch

Mac / PC / Linux / 1000BASE-T
Unmanaged Metal Desktop Switch
Effortless Gigabit Networking
Gigabit connection for home and SOHO
The DGS-105 Switch offers an economical way for SOHO and small/medium businesses to benefit from the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet. It provides five Gigabit ports for easy expansion of your network and a quick way to upgrade your network to Gigabit connectivity.

With data transfer speeds of up to 2000 Mbps on Gigabit Ethernet, the D-Link DGS-105 Switch is ideal for transferring files quickly. Easy access front Ethernet ports with two color LED indicators per port allows you to quickly distinguish link status and speed.

The switch supports IEEE 802.1p QoS (Quality of Service). Additionally the switch incorporates a Kensington Security Slot on the rear panel allowing you to securely fasten the unit to a table or desk.
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 and VoIP calls.
Think Green
The DGS-105 is a plug-and-play networking switch that offers D-Link's Green Technology to save energy and reduce heat, which in turn extends product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. The switch supports IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which detects when a connected computer is shut down or when there is no Ethernet traffic, at which time the switch will automatically power down the idle port, saving a substantial amount of power. In addition, the switch can also save energy by detecting the cable length and using only as much power as necessary. Working together these features drastically reduce power consumption and heat dissipation, resulting in extended life and substantial cost savings.
Environmentally Friendly
The DGS-105 Switch was designed with the environment in mind. It is compliant with Energy Star Level V, CEC, and MEPS regulations which require the use of energy efficient power adapters. Built to comply with RoHS standards to minimize use of hazardous materials and is packaged with an EnergyStar Level V qualified power adapter all in a recyclable packaging making this product truly environmental friendly.
Cable Diagnostics Function
The D-Link Cable Diagnostics Function enables you to be instantly aware of cable conditions through the LED display on the front-panel. You can determine whether the pin connections of you cable connectors are correct, facilitating prompt network troubleshooting if required.
