    Data Sheet

    1. 1 Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate.
    2. 2 The attached devices must have a Gigabit NIC that supports 802.1p queuing to allow QoS functionality.
    3. 3 Jumbo Frame support for 9720 Bytes is applicable in Gigabit mode only. Use of Jumbo Frame feature requires the PC to have a Gigabit NIC that supports Jumbo Frames. Jumbo Frame performance may be affected when used in 10/100 Fast Ethernet mode.
    4. 4 24/7 Basic Installation Support is available only in the USA for the first 30 days from date of original purchase.
    5. 5 Limited Lifetime Warranty available only in the USA. For warranty and regulatory information, please visit: http://support.dlink.com/warranty.
