A very reasonably priced network switch that delivers top data speeds with economical operation

Excerpt: So, switches and hubs: what's that all about then? Well, quite simply, they both do the same thing: connect together devices on a computer network. So, what's a router then? Well, it connects different networks together, securely. Basically though, they all do more or less the same thing: enable computer data to get from one place to another. In a typical computer network you may have one, some or all of these.
Summary: Item is quite a small, compact unit, and very straight forward to set up. However, the power lead supplied is terrible. It us a continental type 2 prong plug, so for a start you'll have to buy a uk adaptor. This in itself is frankly poor. What is inexcusable is that the plug has to be in just the right way or the slightest knock will cause the power to go off and my network to go down.
Summary: Product is OK but it came with a continental power supply which meant I had to but an adaptor! It is important product descriptions contain the right information otherwise it leads to a less than ideal product experience - and costs more money. It is irritating and frustrating.
Summary: D-link's DGS-1005D does perfectly what it's suppose to do. There is no complicated menues or settings. It's pluses are that it is cheap, white, and energy efficient. It does not have any downsides.
Summary: Plug in and use,works just fine. Used this one because had problems with a wireless router that was used after my modem router combo. The blue ray could figure out the wireless setup so just got this one and it works great.
