The DES-105 5-Port Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Desktop Switch is a 5-port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet switch that allows you to quickly set up a wired network. Connect the DES-105 to multiple computers together to share files and folders, or connect it to a router to share an Internet connection. The DES-105 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. All of the ports on the DES-105 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-105 features multiple front, easy-to-access Ethernet ports with two colour LED indicators per port to easily distinguish link status.
