 D-Link DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet Switch
D-Link DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet Switch
Enables small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet ad Fast Ethernet and integrate automatically.

The DES-1008D is an unmanaged 10/100Mbps switch designed to enhance small workgroup performance while providing high level of flexibility. Powerful yet easy to use, this device allows users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps network to multiply bandwidths, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demands. 8 Auto-sensing 10/100Mbps Ports The switch comes with 8 10/100Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet ad Fast Ethernet and integrate. These intelligent ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T, as well as between full- and half-duplex.
Flow Control for Secure Transmission
All ports support 802.3x flow control. This function minimizes dropped packets by sending out collision signals when the ports receiving buffer is full. Flow control is available in the full-duplex mode.
Auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX Cross Over
All ports support auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX cross over. This eliminates the need for cross over cables or uplink ports. Any port can simply plug to a server, a hub or a switch, using the usual straight-through twisted-pair cable.
SOHO Plug-and-Play
With 8 plug-and-play ports, the switch is a perfect choice for the small workgroup to upgrade performance in a client/server environment. The ports can be connected to servers in full-duplex, or hubs in half-duplex.
Desktop Power 
With low-cost connection per-port, the switch can also be set up for direct connection from the PCs. This relieves data bottleneck by giving each workstation a dedicated bandwidth on the network.
