DOES NOT SUPPORT LACP FOR SERVER 2012

IPM C., Newegg
22 April 2014
  • Pros: This is a nice switch for being the cheapest switch of its kind on the market.
  • Cons: Says it does LACP. I can do LACP for VERY FEW systems under VERY specific conditions. DOES NOT WORK ON SERVER 2012 SOFTWARE TEAMING. Constantly got failed: LACP negotiation. Also trying to configure this thing couldn't possibly be any more of a pain in the rear end. Also their tech support takes ...

Works well

Fucking D., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Pros: VLAN capable managed switch is what I needed and this has been running great without any issues. CLI access available as well. At the cost it is pretty good.
  • Cons: Web interface is pretty basic and can be time consuming if needing to configure a lot of ports quickly.

All 24 ports are POE and other manufacturers will tell you they have a 24 port POE switch but only half the ports are POE

JAMES N SMITH JR, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I have been in the networking business for more than 30 years and this Trendnet 24 port POE switch is without a doubt the best buy anywhere. All 24 ports are POE and other manufacturers will tell you they have a 24 port POE switch but only half the ports are POE.

Returning TL2-G244

John S., Newegg
8 July 2013
  • Summary: We currently use TrendNet TEG-S240TX (24 port dumb gig switches) which work fine, so I though these would be ok (despite other reviews saying the gui was bad), but it's worse than I thought. Been working on it for most of the day and still not comfortable with using it in production.
  • Pros: Affordable for the features. This is the best priced L2 switch.
  • Cons: The web gui is terrible, I can't do anything without getting this error: Error Observed Error: 400 Bad Request I have to configure and save multiple times and if I'm lucky it'll save, most of the time I get this error (whether saving or just viewing). Tech support is very slow...opened a ticket e...

RISKY!

IPM C., Newegg
17 May 2013
  • Pros: Cheap managed switch with TONS of features. The cheapest you will find anywhere.
  • Cons: The GUI web interface is EXTREMELY buggy. Especially when you get LACP/VLAN/Port tagging involved! They stopped updating the firmware years ago, even though this device clearly needs serious software fixes.

Gerat bang for the buck

Sean S., Newegg
30 September 2012
  • Summary: Using the switch to do ISCI/NFS traffic in a demo lab environment, 100% Linux environment which had no issues with either the LACP or the jumbo frames configuration with this switch
  • Pros: Value - Great feature set for the money, need a switch with a CLI that could do LACP and provide some "higher end" features in terms of configuration/mgmt and GBIC capability for uplinks
  • Cons: Web based management - works great if your a pure IE user but Firefox10.x and Chrome 22.x had some issues with usability. Wasn't a huge issue as we planned on using the CLI environment anyway but if you plan to live and die by the WebUI you might be disappointed

User Review

  • Summary: For $300 it is a bargain, though I am open to try other devices at this price/feature point.
  • Pros: Cheapest 24 port gigabit switch with a console via ssh and console port. The CLI on the console is an actual shell, not a menu. I only use static port based vlans, trunks, port mirroring, and jumbo frames which all work great.
  • Cons: The http interface only displays/configures half of the ports at a time... can only change settings for port 1-11 or 12-24 with out a reload. Both the console and http interface are laggy, sometimes >30 to change a single setting. I imagine a complicated configuration could take days to enter fro...
