Posted by: from Virginia on 10/12/2012Bought this switch to replace a Linksys 8 port switch. This puts it all in one box, and will handle all the wall jacks in my house.

Great for home networks!!!
Posted by: from Kaneohe, HI on 09/17/2007I bought a bunch of these for home network installs I'm doing. A great deal at the $50 I picked it up for a couple weeks ago. The installation couldn't be easier. Plug the adaptor into the wall. Plug the other end into the switch. Plug in the cable from your modem or router (any port works, there's no WAN port like on your typical consumer grade 4 port router). Plug in your devices, i.e. computer, mp3 streaming device, etc. This is great for home networks sharing an internet connection and only so-so for large file transfers like if you have a Network Attached Storage device. That's it! You're done, you get full duplex connections and a lifetime warranty on it (Netgear recently upgraded the warranty to lifetime for all Prosafe products.) Built well, a little heavy, and it wallmounts in three directions.
