1 out of 5 eggsFixing a died DGS-2205

Pros: Connectors on back and LED on the front. I also bought two DGS-2208 and none of them wasn't DOA,

However I found a way to fix mine. Twice I had to fix it.
The symptom was green power LED was on but none of the port were active. There is a power up routine where each port LED would flash. This wasn't happening anymore.

The first time is when their 5v 1.2A power supply died
after 10 months with a low output voltage <4VDC. I filed for warranty replacement but didn't want to pay $13 shipping back to D-Link when a surplus 5v supply was laying around.

Now after about 20-months the unit finally died again with the same symptoms but the 5v replacement power supply is okay.
C47 caused the failure which is was a 1000uF 6.3v electrolytic became shorted. Replacing this fixed the unit.
Btw the unit internally uses two switching power supplies, one for 3.3v and another for 1.2-1.3v core voltage. C47 was on the 1.2v core voltage and the LED is probably powered from the 3.3v rail..

Cons: I have two Gigabyte Core Duo mo/bo with Marvell Yukon Gigabit and these network switches are finicky with cable length. Too short <10ft of a cable causes connection issues.

Other Thoughts: These types of failures are classic D-Link cost reduction measures. Either the wall-wart dies, (happened 3x for me), or the internal regulator dissipates too much heat (happens on 2 different devices), or some electrolytic cap fails in the power supply.

5 out of 5 eggs6.5 years and still going strong

Pros: Used to be inexpensive, fast, no problems, set it and forget it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My experience with DLink has been positive, with routers, cable modems, and now, switches. Dependable and generally well priced products. Never had a problem.This little switch is no exception and has been going near non-stop for 6.5 years without a glitch. Just realized how long it's been today, so I bought a backup because, lets face it, it's clock is ticking and I don't want to be caught without a replacement ready. So I bought another DLink, but an 8port instead. YMMV.

4 out of 5 eggslasted 5 years

Pros: Lasted 5 years. Did its job until it didn't. Allowed me very high transfer rates between the two main computers on my home network.

Cons: Earlier this year I began to notice erratic behavior. I'd start having network issues that I tracked down to the router itself. Rebooting the router usually fixed it. Then it would work fine for hours, days, weeks, then start acting up again. Five years is long enough I suppose but something this simple should last a bit longer IMO.

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 the home office, 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 eggsUnreliable

Pros: None of significance

Cons: 3x Just stops working. No known trigger. each of 3 of theses I've had died between 12 and 15 months.

Other Thoughts: I've had units like this last 5 to 8 years and higher quality last 10 to 15 yrs. This thing is not worth the time it takes to plug it in because you'll be doing that again in 12 months. Buy another brand.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Three years later still trucking on. $25 well invested.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Someone here claimed that it does not pass Magic Pakets for WOL . This is not correct. I have woken my machines many times remotely. No problem.

1 out of 5 eggsIt is d-Link - dead as expected

Pros: Worked for a few months

Cons: I was out of home for less than two days, and upon return has found that my living room switch (connected to a media PC, blue ray player, Dishnetwork) is not connecting anymore. I was disappointing. When I disconnected it to replace with a spare (a have three more "green" gigabit switches active in my house, and had one extra unit), I was surprised to see it was a D-Link. I did not use D-Link products anymore, I do not remember any of them were working - switches were dead, wifi was loosing signal and routes were loosing computers, and even power supplies on D-links were not powering those. Perhaps I did a mistake somehow, or receive it instead of a real product. Thus, one more peace of trash from the same brand. Other switches are not D-Links, they are working and will work.

Other Thoughts: In part, it is my mistake, I knew well that D-Link will not work. It is in a deserved place now - landfill.

1 out of 5 eggsGot two and both died within 3 years

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I bought two. One died in under two years. The other died in another 8 months. Spend a little extra money and get a better one.
