Excerpt: I was looking for more speed in my existing 10 Mbit switch, which linked a couple of computers and two printers to our existing network. This Ethernet switch was literally "plug-and-play." All that was required was to power the switch with the provided power supply, and plug in the RJ45 Ethernet cables and viola! Everything worked. No tinkering, or fiddling or any adjustments on any of the computers.
Excerpt: Finally pulled Cat6 cable through my trilevel to get hardwire ethernet connections to the master bedroom, basement and family room. I used this switch behind my internet providers gateway to connect everything and it works flawlessly. I cut the cable TV 9 months ago so my primary purpose is to allow better TiVo connectivity (Roamio to Mini) and internet video streaming to these rooms.
Excerpt: I purchased the Netgear unmanaged switch to extend my wired ethernet network to my multimedia center. I was able to add four wired devices to my single-wall ethernet jack without running any new configurations. The switch prioritizes the traffic from this new site without any router reconfigurations. It complements my main 24 port Netgear switch connected to my Apple Time Capsule wireless router.
