Overheat product that start failiing on my Home Network.

Summary: I bought this for their "Smart"capabilities for my home network. The switch itself works fine BUT it heats like a devil!! When it becomes too hot I found that network shares start freezing on my home network.
Summary: Aside from the extra 1-2 weeks that I will be without a functional switch, I am not at all happy about having to pay $10.23 to return an item that cost $59.99 shipped (17% increase in cost), and did not function upon arrival.
Pros: Metal Enclosure, Reputation, Reasonable Price
Cons: Dead on arrival - took it out of the box, plugged it in, and did not function correctly. Half of the indicator light remained illuminated even though no cable was plugged in, the other half never illumunated whether or not a cable was plugged in. No traffic across switch.
Cons: Defective. After configuring VLANs the switch would freeze up and Internet connection would stop. I could no longer access ANY web interface. I had to reset to defaults over and over and over and over again. The configuration software was useless. Had to RMA. It needs more ports too.
Summary: The reason I'm giving a low rating is just to get the attention of NetGear and maybe other companies that are now sending VISA Debit Cards with the Mail-In-Rebates. What happened to the good old checks? My rebate was just for ten bucks and yet, I got a shinny VISA Debit Card.
Cons: Worked for almost 3 weeks. It started to drop all network connections after 15 minutes of operations. No logs or errors to explain problem. Only way to get switch working is to reset or power off/on. Tried different firmwares and still same symptom. Plugged in 3 yr old gig switch and rock solid.
Summary: Habe den Switch voll belegt. Stürzt häufig ab. Support ist nett aber es ist halt ein Mini-Switch. Ich benötige etwas anderes.......16....oder 24 Port-Switch. Den kleinen hier kan man managen, aaaaber besser man belässt ihn in der Grundeinstellung. Hoffe ich konnte etwas helfen.
