Excerpt: I use this with three laptops and a Qnap TS231 NAS for mobile downloading of large files from USB devices. (60 GB) I know very little about network setup but this was about as simple as you might imagine. It works well and allows three sources to transfer as fast as USB 2.0 will push data.
Excerpt: Used as a switch to split my network coming out of the wall to multiple devices. Was super easy to install and set up. Seemed compact and well built, and just worked. Had zero problems. Great great great.
DHCP request is not working and devices does not get an IP.

Summary: While this switch seems to be a good switch and many people have rated it high in the scores i must admit i find this switch as useful as a brick. About 2 year ago i bought this switch. While it was looked good and seems on the first instance i had it i had issues with IP address.
Summary: A PC connected to "picky" ethernet port connected at gigabit speed.
Pros: Gigabit speed. Small form factor. Lifetime warranty. Have been using for almost 6 months and is very fast for gigabit wired networking.
Cons: Was having trouble getting Xbox 360 to connect at faster than 10mbps. Moving ethernet cable to different port on this Netgear switch resolved the issue and connected at 100mbps. Hope this helps other people having this problem. Switch should not be this picky for speed auto negotiation.
Summary: I bought this to connect 4 HTPC systems that require Gigabit connections. I'm downporting to my old WRT54G- so that I can segment my Ethernet, while still keeping internet accessability on the Gigabit network.
Pros: Metal housing, nice power supply, seems well made, works perfectly for my Media Center and internet needs.
