Follow up for the previous review
Pros: Listed in my previous review
Cons: Listed in my previous review
Other Thoughts: This is a follow up to the previous reviewer. The switch does not use the term 'trunk' in usual 802.1q meaning. You can tag any number of VlANs on 802.1q-enabled port. Trunking on this little switch refers to LACP, 802.3ad, which is a ling aggregation protocol - and it does not make sense to have just one port in Etherchannel group. It is not related to the ability of the switch to have multiple VLANs on a single port. So maybe the manual could have been more clear on this subject, but I don't think that it's a good reason to RMA the switch or give 1 star to a decent device.

Not managed switch
Pros: Gigabit switch
Cons: Only 2 trunks.
Other Thoughts: I did not look into any of the other features so I can't really review them..all I got to do was set up VLANs and started on trunk ports when I realized this product does not fit my needs. Now I get to pay a restocking fee, return shipping, and more money for something that actually works like it should. Seriously, why even bother to support VLANs if you can't trunk to a single port for a router? I should have known better than to buy anything from D-Link.

Decent little switch.
Pros: 802.1Q (Entire reason why I purchased)
Cons: No command line.
Other Thoughts: I bought this switch specifically for the gigabit and the 802.1Q VLAN tag/untag support so that I didn't have to do multiple cable runs at my house. I didn't want to use a Cisco switch since they tend to use a bit more power than I like and can be noisy. This switch is silent, doesn't take much power, and it was very easy to set up a few vlans on this device and it has run with no issues since. I didn't really play with some of the other features but it looks like you can do quite a bit. I didn't have to install any software for what I needed to do with it. Just be sure to read the instruction book. The other review on this product mentioned some very good points but didnt pertain to what I needed it for. Overall, I am happy with it and may buy another for the same reasons.

Nice little switch for dot1q
Pros: * Dot1q VLAN support
Cons: * Trap protocol is proprietary and requires D-Link software
Other Thoughts: Strangely, when Management VLAN is enabled, switch will accept untagged frames to the management VLAN on a port that has management VLAN tagged, even though PVID is set to a different VLAN and a different VLAN is untagged (native). I don't know if this is by design, to prevent lock-outs, but it is definitely not documented. Luckily I cannot reach management IP from ports that are not members of management VLAN.
