High-Speed Networking
Fast Ethernet ports allow you to connect up to five or eight devices for fast file transfers and smooth media streaming.

Intelligent Data Streaming
QoS support enables uninterrupted VoIP calls, smooth online gaming and quick downloads over the network connection.

Eco-Friendly and Economical
D-Link Green Technology saves energy while using an economical yet innovative design that runs cool and quiet.


This 8-Port 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet Switch is designed for the departmental and enterprise connection. Powerful and versatile, it eliminates network bottlenecks while giving users the capability to fine-tune performance. The DES-108 has a special front access design for Ethernet ports/LEDs to for easier control of network status. Also, the metal case design keeps cool, allowing for superior performance. Additionally, the DES-108 complies with IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standards, making it energy efficient without losing connectivity or functionality.

Integrated Network
The DES-108 8-port 10/100 Mbps Switch uses auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps ports, allowing a small workgroup to flexibly connect to Ethernet and Fast Ethernet devices to create an integrated network. These ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, as well as between full and half-duplex, allowing you to get the maximum speed possible for each device connected to your network.

Simplified Installation
All of the ports on the DES-108 support automatic MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be plugged directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables. In addition, the DES-108 features multiple front, easy-to-access Ethernet ports with LED indicators per port to easily distinguish link status.

Flow Control for Secure Transmission
When a port reaches its receiving buffer capacity, the 802.3x flow control feature activates to minimize dropped packets. By minimizing the number of dropped packets, the switch provides a more reliable connection for all of your connected devices while surfing the web, playing games, or accessing media.

Think Green
The DES108 is a plug-and-play networking switch that uses D-Link Green Technology to save energy and reduce heat, which in turn extends product life without sacrificing performance or functionality. The switch supports IEEE 802.3az Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which detects when a connected computer is shut down or when there is no Ethernet traffic, in which the switch will proceed to power down the idle port, saving a substantial amount of power.
