The DES-1228P Web Smart Switch is a cost-effective solution for small and medium businesses that require basic management features, showcased in a low cost, easy to configure, and GUI managed 'smart' business solution. The DES-1228P comes with 24 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet ports, 4 1000BASE-T copper interfaces for uplinking to Storage Area Network (SAN) devices, servers, or core switching solutions, and 2 combo SFP fiber slots for long haul uplinking via optional 100BASE-FX or 1000BASE-X transceivers. The DES-1228P is more versatile than ever with integrated wireless switching features. Whether the end nodes are a wired PC workstation or a wireless client, such as the Web Smart DWL-3140AP, the entire network can be managed via a single unified wired/wireless platform.

  • newegg Security The DES-1228P incorporates advanced mechanisms to detect attacks against the central processing unit of the switch and to take corrective action on the attacking interface. When a Denial of Service attack is waged against the DES-1228P, the D-Link Safeguard Engine prevents overload of the central processor, thus insuring network integrity and maintaining open network bandwidth channels. The DES-1228P also supports 802.1x Authentication, which provides a secure means to allow users to log onto your network. When used in conjunction with a RADIUS server, 802.1x requires each user workstation attached to the DES-1228P to provide a username and password before gaining access to the local area network.
  • newegg Unified Wireless and Wired (Firmware v.1.20.08 and later) Without additional costs or licensing, the administrator of the switch can monitor wired or wireless end nodes via a central web interface. Supporting WEP, WPA, WPA2 authentication, DES-1228P can manage up to 24 access points and up to 200 clients. The unified web smart switch facilitates access point deployment by allowing a set of templates to be created, then distributing the same template to multiple access points via a simple click of a button. With no additional license purchase necessary, the Web Smart Switch supports the 802.11g Web Smart Access Point DWL-3140AP, which has a discrete smoke detector (ceiling-mount) form factor that facilitates deployment. All DWL-3140AP and additional D-Link Web Smart switches can be automatically discovered, allowing network topology and layout to be generated in seconds.
  • newegg Link Aggregation The DES-1228P supports static port trunking of up to 6 groups of 8 ports per device. Ports can be combined together to create a fat pipe to a server or a network backbone. To expand the network, you can also make use of link aggregation eliminating bottlenecks between cascaded switches.
  • newegg 802.1Q VLANs The DES-1228P provides support for 802.1Q VLANs improving security and bandwidth utilization. VLANs work by segmenting broadcast domains, thus reducing network congestion due to constant network broadcasting. In addition, VLANs provide a means of securing each broadcast domain from all others. This in turn prevents users on one VLAN from gaining access to resources on another VLAN.
  • newegg 802.1p Priority Tagging For mission critical packets, the DES-1228P supports 802.1p priority tagging to ensure expedited delivery. This feature differs from Port-Based QoS in that 802.1priority tagging allows the administrator to assign and designate the priority of traffic. 802.1p support is ideal for applications such as voice or video traffic so that it is delivered clean and jitter free.
  • newegg SNMP Management & 802.1D Spanning Tree The DES-1228P supports SNMPv1. SNMP is a useful tool in managing and controlling SNMP supported network devices. SNMP enables the DES-1228P to be polled to provide valuable information about the status of the unit and send traps on abnormal events. This sharing of vital management information saves time and money. Furthermore, the DES-1228P supports Spanning Tree Protocol, which provides protection from unintentional cabling loops forming within a network infrastructure. Loops are dangerous in that they create an unending circle where broadcast and multicast traffic propagate across the network in an endless loop. This creates a storm of traffic that overwhelms the network and brings traffic to a crawl. 802.1D Spanning Tree detects and breaks these loops ensuring network uptime.

3 out of 5 eggsfaile but lifetime warrantee replaced no hassle

Pros: Works for awhile (10 months). Warantee replacement was handled without a question or a hassle. It's a "lifetime warantee" which is certainly lots and they did ship a new one.

Cons: None other than you need a backup for when this goes out and you are exchanging under warantee.

Other Thoughts: This one is now our "backUP". With 3 24port POE noisy switches running, one needs a boxed backup for the inevitable failure. whether 10 months or X years.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome switch

Pros: I don't know what everyone is complaining about. This will be the 4th switch I've added to my hotel property with a total of 32 DWL-3140AP's. The latest firmware is definitely required to avoid the xmas tree syndrome other posters are talking about.

Cons: Tech support, you guys are the worst. Seriously, I will never call DLink support again. Yes, it is based in the country that rhymes with Lidia, but they wouldn't even talk to me about the last switch I bought because they saw I had purchased the previous three switches over a year ago and flat out told me I was lying about which switch I'm calling about. I'm sorry I couldn't remember how I setup the other three over a year ago and needed to setup the new fourth one. I eventually figured it out. Lidian's.

1 out of 5 eggsDo you feel lucky?

Pros: When they work, these are nice switches. All features work as advertised, again, when the switch works.

Cons: HIGH rate of failure! This model seriously should be part of a class-action law suit. 3 of 4 purchased were RMA'd within 6 months. One unit was replaced multiple times. Replaced units worked for varying periods of time.

Other Thoughts: Buy a Netgear or Linksys (Cisco for Small Business) instead. Sure any electronic device can fail, but these are either poorly designed or have cheap components which are prone to failure. Stay away!

1 out of 5 eggsDONT BUY!!! THESE FAIL!

Pros: Works for ~6 months. PoE on lots of ports.

Cons: Where to begin? These are EXTREMELY loud. The fans are insane. We had our first fail in about 6 months of ownership and the second just failed about 6 months later

Other Thoughts: VERY VERY BAD! When it fails, all the lights on the front come on. (no, I'm not repeating other reviewers, I know from experience.) I'm about to RMA a second one of these...

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Not Reliable. Two failed in under a year. On one, all LEDS were lit solid, no amount of resetting power cord, reset switch would make it work again. Other unit failed with all the CPU LEDs cycling on / off.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Switch ever

Pros: easy to program thats about it.

Cons: LOUD FANS!!! extremely high failure rates and did I mention loud fans?

Other Thoughts: This is perhaps the cheapest switch ever made. I have purchased dozens of these switches for the company I work for and they fail after 3-4 months. When they fail, all LED's on the front panel will light up and stay lit. I have returned the failed switches only to get repaired units back from D-Link with hardware rattling around inside fo them. Also we have recieved a few that were bad right out of the box, brand new. I would say about 20% of my units have bad ports or ports that are intermittant. AVIOD AVIOD AVIOD

1 out of 5 eggsPoE... Po$?

Pros: Easy setup

Cons: We have 6 of these in service, and about every 3-6 months they go completely dead. After about 1.5 years with them we have replaced every single unit about 2-4 times. That's just over 20 replacements.

When they fail all lights come on and all traffic and PoE driven devices goes down.

Other Thoughts: We really need to move to another PoE switch.

1 out of 5 eggsdo not buy

Pros: price and small size

Cons: unreliable, loud

Other Thoughts: Had to replace twice. One after 8 months, other after 4 month. One day, all light lit up on front panel and all attached POE devices could not get power nor communicate to the rest of network.
