Summary: if you just want a switch there are cheaper ones that will do fine. The set-up of this switch is awful...in retrospect I would never buy this product again. I am very tech savy and the steps to acess the conifg utility are a pain. In order to get to the other functions of this product you need to into your router and change the ip addy so the switch will talk with your router(btw I have a netgear wndr3700)you would think a product made by the same company would work...
Summary: I have read on the forums that there is a software update in Beta that will fix the ping bug, but no word on when it will be available. Definitely check/update the firmware if you get one of these.
Pros: Nice durable metal case construction, small. VLAN, Port Mirroring, Discoverable on the Network, IP addressable fixed or DHCP. Netgear ProSafe - have had good luck with ProSafe.
Cons: Not as simple as the GS105 which is a better choice for simple installs.
