The DES-1005A 5-Port 10/100 Switch allows you to quickly set up a fast, reliable, and efficient wired network in your home or office. The DES-1005A is an unmanaged 10/100Mbps switch designed to enhance small workgroup performance while providing a high level of flexibility. Powerful yet easy to use, this device allows users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps network to multiply bandwidths, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demands. Connect the DES-1005A to multiple computers to share files and folders, or connect it to a router to share an Internet connection.
Effortless High Speed Networking
The DES-1005A features easy access auto sensing 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports with a LED indicator for each port to quickly distinguish link status and activity. These ports detect the network speed and auto-negotiate between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, as well as between full and half-duplex, to get you the maximum speed possible for each device connected to your network, for faster browsing, video streaming, and online gaming. The DES-1005A also supports Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover, allowing you to connect each port directly to a server, hub, router, or switch using regular straight-through twisted-pair Ethernet cables.
Reliable Plug and Play Installation
The DES-1005A is a Plug-and-Play device that requires no configuration, so setup is simple and hassle-free, so right away you’re easily able to connect multiple computers, share files, music, and video across your home or small office network, or even create a multi-player gaming environment. 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.
