Summary: Case# 03434266 I called Linksys to get my switch RMA'd and all went well untill the RMA department. RMA rep told me that Linksys no longer supports the Linksys SD2008 and Cisco takes care of it.
Excerpt: I never like this device. The SD2008 specifically version 2.1 is piece of hardware that keeps on malfunctioning. I had like five calls received from different customers who own multiple unmanaged switch like these from Linksys.
Good performance but it became intermittent and finally kicked the bucket after 6 years!
7 August 2014
Summary: I have several of these and the one that is about 6 years old just failed. It was becoming intermittent and with a big network it is hard to find the one component that is acting up. Finally today it just died so I could identify the bad component in the system which was this switch.
Summary: I purchased this unit for a remote area of our offices to replace an older 100Base-T unit. It slowed the area to a crawl. Testing showed that traffic was flowing at 1/3 the speed of the old unit.
Summary: I own two of these, version 2.1 and version 3.0. Version 2.1 definitely runs too hot but after 2 years of being on 24/7 it is still going strong. Version 3.0 runs cooler and the performance on both is outstanding.
Summary: This excellent Ethernet Switch fully lives up to any expectations related to its prestigious manufacturer. Metal body: heavy, solid, durable-looking. Setup time: zero. Problems/bugs: zero. All three PCs having Gigabit capability in my home network immediately recognized the new 1GB bandwidth limit.
Summary: Version v3 fixes the well known problems of v1 - noisy fan, no jumbo frame support. Also fixes v2.X issue of overheating. The SD2008 has gotten some justifiably bad reviews based on the earlier v1 & v2.x designs.
Summary: I bought this SD2008 switch and I had trouble from the beginning. Connected PC with gigabit eithernet, Linkstation with gigabit port, and a couple of other laptops. Could not get all to connect to my router. Very weird. I got it only to work with only 2 devices, at 100MB, so I just let it be.
