Auto-sensing 10/100 Ports

The D-Link DES-1008A 8-Port 10/100 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.

Flow Control for Secure Transmission

802.3x flow control on each port minimizes dropped packets when the port’s receiving buffer is full. This gives you a more reliable connection for all of your connected devices, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted network connection.

Auto-MDI/MDIX Crossover

All ports support auto-MDI/MDIX crossover, eliminating the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. Each port can be directly connected to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
