The average router comes with four ports you can use to create your own network. Too bad you've got six devices that need to be on your net. But don't throw out your old router and try to buy one with more ports. Buy an eight port switch instead. In fact, how about this one?

Designed to work at 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1000 Mbps speeds, so it can handle even the fastest traffic currently offered by Ethernet routers. Part of D-Link's “Green Ethernet” line, it's designed for low power requirements, which can get even lower when you have fewer active ports. So you not only use less electricity, you create less heat and your switch lasts longer. To save paper, documentation comes on a CD-ROM disk.

If your home or small office is starting to get complicated, expand your local network's capabilities inexpensively with a multi-port switch.

  • newegg Green Ethernet Technology With Green Ethernet technology, the D-Link DGS-2208 automatically adjusts power usage according to link status and cable length, greatly reducing power consumption and operational costs while generates less heat for reliable operation.
  • newegg Gigabit Network Connectivity The D-Link DGS-2208 integrates 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet technology that provides a tenfold increase over 100M Fast Ethernet and a hundredfold increase over 10M Ethernet, to raise the speed and performance threshold for a converged network.
  • newegg Half/full-duplex Compatible With full-duplex support, the D-Link DGS-2208 works at a maximum 2000Mbps on each RJ45 port (doubling the speed of normal half-duplex devices), and is also compatible with half-duplex mode. On top of that, each port supports Auto-negotiation and Auto-MDI/ MDI-X, which facilitate installation and troubleshooting respectively.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Basic Switch

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, good brand (I've always had good luck with D-Link switches), low power usage, jumbo packets and gigabit speeds. It does its job and it does it well.

Cons: It doesn't cook for me.

Other Thoughts: I use this as a node switch in my server rack for some non-bandwidth-critical network hardware, with one port going back to the backbone managed switch.

It's just a switch. What else is there to say?

1 out of 5 eggsBeware older models

Pros: Transfers packets

Cons: All ports fall to lowest speed in mixed mode on A1 revs.

Other Thoughts: I know this is old, but if some crop up somewhere make sure you don't get an A1. If you did, I think D-Link should swap for a C1 for free as it works properly.

3 out of 5 eggsreliable without jumbo frames

Pros: Bought 3 of these, 3 years ago, and both have been in constant use (all 8 ports) on high-traffic networks since then. 100% reliable except one attempt to enable jumbo frames. Flat/stackable, reasonably sturdy, wall-mountable.

Cons: Jumbo frame support is broken, or at least is not compatible with the 4K and 9K frame sizes used by Intel and Realtek network cards/chipsets.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks until it doesn't

Pros: Works until it fails.

Cons: Fails. Bought one 4 years ago. Also, the warranty is 3 years on hardware, not 'lifetime limited' as newegg claims. I've had one other switch fail in my lifetime and it was just a cheap no-name switch. I've got cheap switches from the 90s that still work fine.

4 out of 5 eggsFlawless, almost

Pros: Works great, was faster than my old switch.

Cons: None, maybe

Other Thoughts: Worked great for over year until I invited my brother in law to a LAN party. Couldn't find the DC power supply for the device for 2 minutes. I went into the garage and found it. Came back to "Oh it's cool this other power supply fits in there and it works now". I could smell the burnt circuits already at this point. It was a fried. R.I.P. my gigabits : ^ (
