Excerpt: I bought this switch for my IT services business but got to use it at scout day camp. Most folks laptops didn't have a good enough wifi to capture the signal from the distant router at the fairgrounds. However my Dell 7000 latched right onto the signal. So I connected to the distant wifi, plugged the switch into my laptops Ethernet jack and turned on internet connection sharing on the Ethernet port.
Excerpt: We recently had a disaster at work. We needed to relocate the engineering offices in a moments notice. I ended up renting a construction office trailer and installing three Linksys SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switches to support all the users. Lucky staples had these switches in stock. The Linksys SE2500 switches ran our Cisco phones with POE adapters just fine. The network speed was decent for the computers and the end users were happy.
Excerpt: Sets up in 2 minutes and works right out of the box. This is as simple as it gets. Plug in the power adapter, plug in an Ethernet cable from the router and plug in up to four more Ethernet devices to expand one router port to 4. Makes a noticeable difference in speed vs. wireless connections for computers, NAS devices, etc.
