D-Link DFE-905 Network Kit - Part 2
I went down to a shop in SLS to purchase the kit. The thing that first struck me before I bought the DFE-905 was the stark difference in the package between the one offered in Singapore and the one displayed on their US website. The one offered in the shop was an earlier shipment of the package. According to D-Link, the earlier shipments of the DFE-905 will be short of a Quick Starter Guide and a Shareware Game CD. To be sure that the package had the necessary contents, I asked the shop assistant to display its contents, ala "stand by network kit". The contents were as follows :
  • 1 x DFE-904 4-port 10/100Mbps SOHO hub
  • 2 x DFE-530TX 10/100Mbps PCI Adapter
  • 2 x Network Cables
  • 2 x 6m (20Ft) Cat 5 Cables
  • AC Power Adapter
  • Mounting Accessories
  • A Driver Diskette
  • User Guides (1 for the adapters, another for the hub)

Sure enough, the Quick Starter Guide and the Shareware Game CD were not included.

The contents of later shipment package offered on D-Link's site are shown below together with its cover :
