    Works well, noisy adapter

    Posted

    This switch works well as it does not bog down our internet speeds while allowing us to connect multiple Ethernet cables in one room through a single wall port as the router is in another room in the house. The issue I have with it is that the ac adapter used to power the switch makes a high pitched noise. You may also be able to get a similar switch for a cheaper price, I just didn't want to wait for shipping at the time. Overall, reliable and works well, but the power adapter has an annoying noise.

      Hi, WesternAce,

      The power adapter should not make a high-pitched noise. To isolate this challenge, we suggest that you try to plug the power adapter into a different outlet. If the same thing happens, please email us your contact details at LinksysCares@linksys.com so we can further check it. Indicate the link to this review for our reference.

    this worked ok at first but as we started to get more traffic on the network this would sometimes completely turn off a port to a random line. We upgraded to a larger 16 port switch and since have had no issues.

    The product is ok, but the feature is too simple. I think the product should consider future applications. No one would like to many components in home. Integrate some functions and provide high quality products will make them more competitive.

    So far there are no problems with this product. As long as it continues to work I am happy. It was very easy to start using it. I just hope that it will continue to work so that I do not have to purchase another one. Only time will tell.

    the strength of the wifi signal has weakened this late week from the router and cannot determine if it is from only those going through the Ethernet switch or not, so having to hold judgment for now on the product.

    It's good product but won't pickup receipt printer

    If you have small operation with wired computers this is perfect product for you. I only gave 3 stars because it won't pick up/recognize receipt printers which is big part of our business. Good product otherwise.

      Hi Terry,

      We value the time you spent in sharing your experience with us. We suggest that you check if the LEDS are properly lit on the switch. You can also temporarily bypass the switch and test if the printers are recognized directly connected to the modem/router.

      Should you need further assistance, please reach out to us at LinksysCares@linksys.com with your contact details the link to this review.

    Was told it would help speed up a connection on a computer in the office with a wireless and wired connection. Have to log in to a remote connection. No increase at all.

      Hi Cskolsky,

      The Linksys SE3005 is an unmanaged switch which can transfer data across a local network at up to Gigabit speeds. We suggest that you check if your computer has the same speed when connected straight to the modem or router.

      Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at LinksysCares@linksys.com should you need further assistance. Include your contact details and the link to this review.

    Not going to blow you away by performance. Does a good job for the purposes it is designed for. Well built, but slightly overpriced for hardware and performance.

    It it works but you need a faster modem to connect to it because the speed is not fair but it is acceptable so I could recommend it.

      Hi, Gman62,

      Yes, the SE3005 Switch is just a plug-and-play device and the internet speed would depend on your existing modem/router. As a product overview, this Switch has Gigabit ports which are capable of providing 10 times faster connection than ordinary 10/100 Ethernet connections. Should you have queries or clarifications, feel free to contact us directly at LinksysCares@linksys.com, anytime.
