Summary: DO NOT UPGRADE TO 22.214.171.124 IF YOU NEED GIGABIT PORTS. 126.96.36.199 is the latest stable version. Port 1 is capped at 100Mbps and fails connectivity tests after upgrading the firmware to 188.8.131.52. I had to downgrade the firmware to resolve the issue.
REBATE IS MIS-LEADING - $10 off NEXT Purchase of Netgear

Summary: Rebate is $10 off your NEXT purchase of Netgear equipment. This is NOT stated anywhere except the terms of rebate link. The posting is misleading. Item is excellent BTW. Use Netgear is you want the best and no problems.
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.
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.
