Great little switch!

by Russell on 8/19/2006

I work in IT, and I always use linksys products when I can for their great combination of value and reliability. This switch in particular is one of those that doesn't arouse much comment -- but that in itself is the highest comment that it can have. It does its job reliably day in and day out. Set it up and you can count on it to work.

Product Overview

The Cisco® SD205 5-Port 10/100 Switch can significantly increase the speed of your network traffic. A switch serves the same function as a hub in a network design, tying your network equipment together. But unlike a simple-minded hub, which divides the network's bandwidth among all the attached devices, a switch delivers full network speeds at each port. Installing this cost-effective 5-port 10/100 switch can potentially give you five times the network speed you currently have.

It's also the perfect way to integrate 10-Mbps Ethernet and 100-Mbps Fast Ethernet devices. All five ports are auto speed negotiating and have automatic medium dependent interface (MDI) and MDI crossover (MDI-X) detection, so you don't have to worry about the cable type. Each port independently negotiates for best speed and half- or full-duplex mode, for up to 200 Mbps of bandwidth per port. Fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed on to the network.

The new ultra-compact case design is sure to fit into your workgroup environment. Let the Cisco SD205 5-Port 10/100 Switch kick your 10/100 network into high gear.
