Summary: NETGEAR's unmanaged JFS500-series switches ramp up office networks to a new power level -- affordably. These unmanaged 10/100 Fast Ethernet switches provide expanded connectivity for small office networks at an economical price the value-conscious business owner can't ignore. All 16 or 24 switched 10/100 ports deliver automatic speed and full/half duplex sensing, 200 Mbps of network speed in full-duplex mode, and Auto UplinkT technology to adjust for straight-through or...
Summary: This switch was installed 9/12 with about 12 PCs and servers attached to it. It ran fine for about 10 months then general weirness on the network. The switch looked fine, but traffic to a standstill. No amount of shutting down or rebooting PCs and servers mattered. Device ping times would be fine, but HTTP and other traffic just basically stopped. Cycle the power and life is good again for about 3-5 days and it starts all over again.
Summary: Excellent plug and play switch from Netgear. I've purchased this switch for my small business. Easy to mount on my 2 post rack with included kit. It has nice purplish blue (that's best I can describe the color) and compliments the usual boring black computer equipments. High quality product~!!!
Summary: I have used Netgear before and have been satisfied. I compared with LinkD and Cisco and chose this product because: Good price - much better than Cisco Good prior experience Wanted an internal power supply. I hate the transformer on the plug type.
Summary: Bought for and installed at customer premises. Works fine. It's a switch so there is nothing to set up. Nice that the power supply is internal, so there is no external power supply and chintzy DC power plug to worry about.
Summary: Access to the power and the network cables were on opposite sides of the box. I wanted access to the power and the network cables on the same side of the box in order to accomodate a neater installation of cables in a desktop arrangement. Accessing the cables from opposite sides of the box is good for rack mounted equipment but not for desktop equipment.
Summary: Sixteen ports. One plug. Simple.....Below are the setup instructions. Plug into an outlet. Plug internet into any port. Plug internet using devices into any port. DONE. I connected internet from modem to wireless home router. All wireless devices connect to wireless router. Router had four ports to connect wired devices. Connected router to the 16-port switch with one ethernet cable to any port.
