Works like a champ!

Steve, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: So far, a very stable unit. I upgraded it to use DD-WRT, which is very useful. I got this mostly because of having 2 Xbox 360's in the house needing to have to separate IP addresses.

Linksys workhorse, as expected

MATTHEW B., Newegg
1 January 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this used back in 07, (v3.0) and it still like a champ. Much like the WRT54g router, they've been around for over a decade and still run perfectly. They're like the '60 Chevy of networking gear.
  • Pros: I used mine in a college house utilizing all 8 ports for PC's, laptops, and consoles pretty much day and night and never had so much as a hiccup from the unit. Now lives out a quiet life at my workstation managing my PC and Xboxes.
  • Cons: 1. All these years and they still don't make them with mounting holes. Had to rig up my own with a block of wood and zip ties when I finally freed up the desk space and got sick of moving it to vacuum the floor. 2. Personally I think the price point is a little steep for just 10/100 speed

Glad I got this larger expanded version

Eric J. Willden, Amazon
5 December 2014
  • Summary: It's a Linksys, and it's been VERY Reliable. Have used it now for about the past 6 months. Glad I got this larger expanded version, as I had been using the 5 port one's for a while. Always great to have the extra ports when you need'em.

Works very well

A reviewer in FL, Amazon
29 November 2014
  • Summary: All the ports worked well for about 2 years, then the one I used as the incoming (#1) stopped working. I did all the troubleshooting and ended up switching the incoming cord to port #2, and it seems to be working fine that way. So I only lost 1 port after 2 years, which might be normal.

Good quality networking equipment. Keep the LEDs.

John J. Guarracino, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: Linksys always makes good quality networking equipment. Until recently, Linksys had ties to Cisco. As having my Cisco Certification (along with other Certs) and working in networking all my life, I like having LEDs flashing while indicating network activity.

Works just advertised

LanceRx, Staples

  • Excerpt: Needed a new switch for a small business when we upgrade our computers. Due due fact my old system only had 4 ports and I needed a new one since going wireless at the time was not a option.

Great Switch !!!!

Robert Mckeand, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I like this switch. It's working fine and I like that each connection point has three little lights to show activity and speed. Sad that these are being replaced by ones with only one light for each connection point.

Inconsistent

Don, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I have several other Linksys switches so I decided to pick this one up. I have never had a problem w/ any of my Linksys switches; however, this one was another story. At times my printers would see it and at times they would not.
