Boost your home network with the D-Link DMS-106XT 6-Port Multi-Gigabit Switch

With the DMS-106XT, D-Link released a high performance unmanaged switch with five 2.5 Gbps Ethernet ports and one 10 Gbps Ethernet port, making it a great option for media, sharing files and games. Besides, it looks good to do it.

You can connect all six Ethernet ports to any device you want, but it makes a lot of sense to use the 10 Gbps Ethernet port for a NAS server to maximize throughput on your network. iTWire tried DMS-106XT with 10 Gbps port connected to Synology DS1621 + NAS and desktop computer connected to 2.5 Gbps port; our copies of multi-gigabyte files were fast and painless, with the progress bar moving at an unprecedented speed. In all of our testing and regular use, it provided trouble-free, reliable, quiet, and high-speed network connectivity.

The switch also provides intelligent turbo mode to provide quality of service (QoS) and port-based priority for uninterrupted online gaming and 4K streaming.

On a managed switch, you must configure a series of rules to make QoS work, specifying how much bandwidth you want to allocate to specific applications. D-Link has simplified QoS on the DMS-106XT so that you only need to press a button to turn it on or off, then it prioritizes traffic based on the switch port. So, port 1 has priority over port 2, which both have priority over port 3, and so on up to port 5. 10Gb port has the same priority as port 1. So you can physically connect your devices in this way. that your most important network needs can use the lower numbered ports. For example, you can connect your smart TV to port 1 for seamless streaming, while your printer is connected to port 5.

Physically speaking, the switch has LEDs to easily indicate port speed status, has quiet fanless operation, and is made of durable matte gray aluminum. In fact, its sleek design won it a Good Design Award as well. The Good Design Award is a comprehensive design assessment that has been recognized worldwide for recognizing products with good design since 1957 and focuses on five ideals: humanity, honesty, innovation, aesthetics and l ‘ethics.
