Summary: I will say that I'm most-comfortable working with enterprise-grade hardware, which this obviously, is not. I purchased this to segment my home network into a private network for my home business devices and an easier-to-access via WAP for the rest of the family.
Summary: This is getting a bit long in the tooth now days, but this is a gig-port switch, let's you do vlans and QoS, and aggregate a couple ports. I think the switch is great for home use, especially with a synology or other NAS solution that can take advantage of aggregated gigabit ports.
Summary: Absolutely fixed my problem with AT&T Uverse. Uverse was killing my home network by flooding my switches when I moved the set-top boxes around my home to new locations. I originally had the set-top boxes, except for one, plugged directly into the Residential Gateway so, while i did notice some...
Summary: Bought this to replace a Linksys that MASY have been causing feedback problems. CAnnot tell you if or why, but since I installed it, the problems of a lost internet connection ahve disappeared.
Summary: Had to pick a switch as our old vpn firewall had to be replaced and new one from out tech support needed a switch to handle more work stations. Being the wana be geek, when i got it i put in place without calling support. Literally plug everything in and it worked.
Summary: This seller, Origin Micro, delivered a unit prepared for foreign markets. Inside the manufacturer's box was a power module that wouldn't plug into US AC outlets, and required 230 VAC, Taped on the outside of the NetGear box was an off-brand power module that would work on US outlets.
Summary: I got tired of replacing the Linksys/Cisco switches that only lasted a couple years before becoming intermittent. This Netgear switch is solid, runs cool and has worked flawlessly. I'd highly recommend this unit.
This thing supports port based vlans and 802.1q tags

Summary: I used this to turn my 2 port Ethernet router (Lan side, Wan side) into 4 VLANs/Subnets. Wifi, DMZ (OLD PC for remote desktop access) , VOIP (Ooma IP phone), LAN (desktop PCs). This thing has been rock solid and isolates my network.
