Summary: We ended up returning the item. "Pro" in the name is not correct. Its not at all like the other ProSAFE switches. It can't really be used in places where you need a couple of VLANs and a VLAN trunk to another switch with tagging. Our throughput was slow and caused jidder and dropouts. We observed about 3 MBs on one of the VLANs over the the switch trunk. I previously obtained a Netgear GS with more ports used and it worked prefect. I was disappointed in the GS108.
Summary: This was one of the worst switches that I have bought. none of the software that came to manage it worked. After many attemps to resolve with netgear, I returned it with no hassles; thanks Amazon. I ended up buying a 608 netgear which works flawlessly.
Summary: I had a difficult time re-establish my network so that all computers on my network could print on both connected printers. Even now, one computer cannot print to the laser printer but can print to the inkjet. Someone blamed my Apple (wired) router for this.
Summary: These switches don't require any management or really any network expertise to use. This makes them a perfect solution to expand the amount of ports on your home router for even the rubes who know nothing about networking. They've helped me out; I have over 20 ethernet connected IP devices in my house.
