GS105E - For home network running Windows - Not for businesses)

R. Del Russo, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: This is in response to the NETGEAR 5-PORT (GS105E) (Edit/update (12/12/2013): Spelling errors) Does the job once it's setup. However, NETGEAR ships this switch with software that only runs on Windows and without a static IP address.

  • Summary: (Disclaimer: I'm already bitter about Netgear, because I owned a WGT624 wireless router, and the thing would literally die and need to be reset every two weeks. But, I was told, Netgear's ProSafe products are better, they're more professional-grade, and they just work. Well, ha.

No more web interface which is a deal breaker for me.

Michael Walker, Amazon
12 February 2010
  • Summary: The only way to manage (configure) this switch is through the Netgear Software which is a deal breaker for me because I had hoped to put this in a remote office. The switch does not not allow configuration changes via a web interface.
