Excerpt: This is the second I've purchased. The first unit has been in continuous operation for nearly 5 years- yes it is the same model number. This is not a new or even recent product from Netgear, but it is highly reliable and compact.
Summary: The switch works fine and is high quality. Just note that the design has changed: the 7.5V input is now 12V, and there is only one LED per port, instead of two. I wish there was no power switch - seems like an unnecessary feature that could lead to failure, or inadvertent activation.

Summary: A few years ago Broadband Internet service became availabe in my neighborhood. I ran a single Cat 5e cable from my upstairs computer room to my basement mounted router. (I prefer cat 5e connectivity over wifi).
Summary: Whenever I add any network equipment I plan to spend a couple hours of tinkering to get it to work, but this was the exception. All of my wireless router ports were in use so I unplugged one device and used that port to connect to the switch and then connected the device to the switch.
