Summary: We replaced our 10/100 switch with the Cisco. All we had to do to set it up was unplug and plug the network cords into the Cisco unit. It was quick and flawless + it helped increase our network speed.
Summary: I bought this for my fairly simple home network. I immediately had problems streaming media from my Windows Home Server to my WD TV Live box. My old Linksys gigabit switch had no trouble. Out of the box this was a bust. I'm not sure if it my network could be tweaked to work, but I just bought a NetGear 16-port switch and it works fine, so why bother.
Summary: just replaced my Cisco 2940, with this switch as I did not need the management capabilities and wanted the gigabit support. My intent is to RMA this item ASAP, not so much to do with anything but the sound level of the fan. The 2940 was not even noticable, the SR2016 must be at least 3dB or 6db louder. This is unacceptible given where the device needs to reside.
Summary: I bought this switch in June of 2008. On January 12, 12 of 16 ports died. Sent back to Linksys for replacement with lifetime warranty. Still on backorder. E-mails are never answered. Have called several times. What use is the warranty on a bad product if the manufacturer can't get a replacement. Avoid the Linksys switches.
Summary: It broke after two months of use, I have been waiting for 5 weeks for linksys to send me a replacement, I had to buy another switch I could not leave my business with out a network for that long, not recommended for business.
Summary: I purchased the Linksys SR2016 11/26/07. 12 of 16 ports are now dead. So it lasted amazingly almost exactly 13 months. We've contacted Linksys and they want the old unit back before they will send a new one! What am I supposed to do with my business for those days? The other option is to pay $75.00 for 'Quick Turnaround' of one day delivery. I think that is BS. When you buy Linksys don't be fooled into thinking its Cisco quality.
Summary: I have been doing Network Consulting and Repair for years and have always used Linksys products. Maybe I am just "jumping to conclusions", but the quality of Linksys seems to have taken a dive after Cisco purchased the company. I have lost numerous Switches and Routers that seem to last 12 to 18 months. I now call them "13 month wonders", because they last just outside the warranty period.
Summary: We have had two of these fail in the last 7 months. They both failed in well under a year. I will think long and hard before buying any Linksys or Cisco product ever again. Oh yeah, their RMA Replacement program is TERRIBLE. It took approximately 3 months to receive the replacement unit. That one failed after 5-6 months.
