    I really don't get the low ratings this is receiving...I use this in my living room to feed my PS3, a DVR and then to another switch to feed two DVR's and a computer. I just plugged in the wires, powered it up and everything was online and fast. No configuration, no software to update, just pure plug and play. If you want something simple to setup that you never have to worry about, buy this switch...I'm upgrading mine to the 8 port because my network is expanding and I won't hesitate to buy this brand based on my experience so far, you shouldn't either.

    This gigabit switch is exactly as promised: It delivers a fast, reliable connection. One of the two makes a faint, extremely high pitched noise, which Netgear told me is a known issue, and that some "squelching" is normal. I placed the noisy one behind a table where I don't hear it to often. It doesn't affect performance, but it should be noted.

    pros: it looks nice. works on 10/100 ok cons: in the gigabit mode it seems to handle data in spurts. it will go at 5-700kbps for a second then stop then repeat. it actually took less time with 10/100 mode.

    It's pretty simple - plug this into your router and viola you have four more inputs to plug in computers, voip phones, etc. (1 of the 5 ports is used by the router leaving 4 open). No apparent loss of speed, very stable.

    • A. No you do not. GB stuff is great for newer network cards but TV's, game consoles as well as most laptops still run at 100MB. Cat 5 or 5E cables are just fine. I chose Cat 6 cabling to the man cave as it is a long run. The cable modem should be gigabit and suggest you purchase one rather than renting. Motorola is the best. That said your router/switch should be GB as well. Again NETGEAR is the best as they are a subsidiary of Cisco Systems...the premier supplier for Military and Business systems world wide. Good luck!

    • A. The switch is compatible with Cat5e cable. Cat6 is just faster. Please note that speed is always based on the 'slowest' point device. For example, you have a gigabit pc network adapter, switch and router, but a 100mbs modem. Internally your devices will "talk" faster, but Internet speed will still be the same. Upgrading your PC adapters, routers/switches and modems to 1GB or 10GB speeds might be great for a home based business, the avid gamer, or movie buff (pirater), but the average user won't really see much difference. If you live out in the boonies where a ISP gives shoddy speeds, then you're tossing movie away. The other greatest mistake people make is think WIFI (wireless) speed is the same as they see on the box. WIFI is always slower than the advertised LAN (wired) speed. Read the box carefully and follow the same rules I mentioned above (speed is only as fast as the slowest device). Wireless devices will get one speed while the wired devices will get a faster speed on a Wifi-router.
