    I 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.

    The NETGEAR - 16-Port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet Unmanaged Switch makes it possible to connect up to 15 ethernet networked devices to my router without relying on WiFi. This allows me to reduce the demands on my WiFi signal, which is already handling all our phones and tablets. It also enables me to connect devices that are beyond optimal WiFi range.

    If you have a lot of things that are all connected by ethernet this is the hub for you. For the same price you can also get only an 8 port compared to this ones 12. Netgear has always produced excellent products and I would recommend this one to anyone who needs one.

    We purchased this product because we needed to expand our switch capacity. Because the NETGEAR switch we were using has lasted us over 15 years, we decided to stay with what works. We are not disappoint!

    Bought 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.
