Want to reach gigabit speeds on your home network without pulling more cable? The DES-1009G multi-speed gigabit-over-copper-Ethernet switch by D-Link features a 1000 BaseT copper gigabit port that's designed to support and integrate eight networking ports. The DES-1009G automatically detects and uses the highest transfer speed of the network segment it's connected to, and its standard CAT 5 cabling works seamlessly with existing network cables. It's also interoperable in a multivendor environment. Three LEDs per port show you connection speed, port status and network activity.
