5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch
What This Product Does
Expand your home or office network with the D-Link® 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch. This Switch lets
you network up to five devices at speeds up to 2000Mbps (at full duplex) and is compact enough to be
placed virtually anywhere in your home or office. Add a computer, printer, NAS storage device, or network
camera and expand the functionality of your network. You may also connect the Switch to hubs, switches,
and routers to expand your network.
Before You Begin
The setup of the Switch can be performed using the following steps:
• Visually inspect the DC power jack and make sure that it is fully secured to the power adapter.
• Do not cover the ventilation holes on the sides of the Switch, and make sure there is adequate
ventilation around it.
• Do not place heavy objects on the Switch.
• Place the Switch in a cool and dry environment.
Thank you for purchasing the 5-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch. Follow the easy
steps in this guide to properly set up your switch. Please verify that all the package
contents listed below are available.
Package Contents
DGS-105 5-port Gigabit Desktop Switch
Wall Mount Kit
Power Adapter
• You may mount the Switch on a wall with the included mounting kit. Two mounting slots are
provided on the bottom of the Switch for this purpose.
• Magnet mounting is an optional method to mounting the Switch on a wall, and is not included
with the package contents.
Connecting the Switch
Step 1
Plug the supplied power adapter into the Switch and the other end into a power outlet, power strip,
or surge protector (recommended). Verify the Power indicator is lit on the Switch.
Step 2
Connect one end of an Ethernet cable in the device you want to connect to the Switch and the other
end into one of the Ethernet ports on the Switch. Check the Link lights (LEDs) on both the Switch and
the device to verify that the cable is good and that there is a valid connection.

D-Link Green Technology
D-Link Green Technology implements special power-saving features that detect cable length and link
status and adjust power usage accordingly. Green Technology saves energy in two specific ways:
1. If there is no link on a port (when there is no connection or the device connected is turned off) the
port(s) will enter a “sleep mode” which will drastically reduce the amount of power used.
2. D-Link Green Technology detects the length of connected Ethernet cable and adjusts power
usage accordingly without affecting performance. This way, a port connected to a 10m or under
cable only uses as much power as it needs, instead of using full power, which is only needed for
100m cables.
This product is IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficiency Ethernet compliant. The IEEE 802.3az EEE standard defines
mechanisms and protocols intended to reduce the energy consumption of network links during
periods of low utilization, by transitioning interfaces into a low-power state without interrupting the
network connection. Both connected devices must support 802.3az EEE for power saving support. If the
connected device does not support 802.3az EEE, the switch will default to D-Link’s Green Technology of
power saving.

This LED indicator light is green when the port is successfully connected to an 1000Mbps device and
will blink as data is transmitted or received.
This LED indicator light is amber when the port is successfully connected to an 100Mbps or 10Mbps
device and will blink as data is transmitted or received.
Note: A Category 5 (or higher) Ethernet cable must be used for 100Mbps or higher operation.
Power Indicator
This green indicator light is on when the Switch is receiving power; otherwise, it is off.
