My DLINK DGS-108 switch died last night
#1
So, I got up this morning and I could not access the internet. My computer is plugged into a Linksys router (WRT160N.) One of the router ports in plugged into a DLINK DGS-108, 8 port switch.

There are some bad reviews for that switch at Jeff Bezo's online emporium.

Sometime during the night switch went bonkers. It was tying up my router somehow. By elimination, it's the point of failure.

So, I need a new 8 port switch. Anyone have a suggestion for a reliable 8 port switch.

Doesn't need PoE nor to be managed.

I'm using a NETGEAR ProSAFE FS108NA 8-Port Switch that I've had for quite a while with no issues.

$19.99 on Amazon (for the non-PoE version) with free shipping for Prime members.

Looks like some solid reviews also (at least for the non-PoE version).

How old is the Dlink? probably bad caps. Just recapped a Dell PowerConnect 2016. Guess that was built at the time Dell went cheap and bought bad caps by the container.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I purchased it July 29, 2015. I probably should have put a 40mm fan in the top of the case. This switch runs to my Roku 3, my OPPO BlueRay, and my OTA DVR. I've been really running the ROKU lately.

I was thinking I needed a gigabit switch -- I really don't since my internet is only 5 mbps downstream. So, a 10/100 will do the job.

Yeah, but it is nice to connect up and see 1000 mbps even if it is only to the switch. Smile

Looking in my toy box, I find a unknown name 10/100 4+1 port switch with PoE that can be turned on/off with a dip switch. And. I find a DLINK DGS-1008P 8 port Gigabit switch. 4 ports are PoE and 4 are not.

I guess I can try one of these.

Hi justMongo, where do you sleep on this earth?
I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

I find it best to sleep on the outside of the Earth.


--- Switches

Switches have almost become commodity devices these days for the home user.

They're cheap and work pretty darn good. The autoconfig works pretty well unless you're doing something strange.
