    Good Switch

    This simple, budget-friendly switch also features non-blocking design and supports jumbo frames to help ensure proper data distribution and speed. NETGEAR also designed this Ethernet switch with an auto MDI/MDIX feature, which means there is no need for crossover cables. Overall, this switch is compact and versatile and is an ideal solution if you don’t want to pay a great deal for a switch, especially if you need something compact to fit on desk

    I've had a Netgear wired router (RP114) for many years and never had any trouble with it, so when I ran out of availble ports, I bought this Netgear Fast Ethernet Switch. I just connected a port from my existing Netgear router to a port on this switch, then connected 2 computers to 2 other ports on the Netgear Fast Ethernet Switch and everything worked perfectly the 1st time. I would highly recommend this product as well as other Netgear products!

    Delicate Switch

    This switch worked great for a while, but then my power cable plug started losing contact with the switch. So depending on the angle of the cord, the switch would stay on or shut off. I fixed it by taking it apart, removing the power receptacle from the circuit board, cutting off the plug, and soldering the power wires directly to the circuit board. I was not happy that the cable did that, but it was worth fixing for the low price and small size.

    I bought this as I ran out of room on the back of my modem. I moved several items from my modem to the port extender. I plugged them in and they all worked. No tweeking or fussing with getting it to work!

    Once again, you can't go wrong with a Netgear product. If you don't want to pay for gigabit pricing and want a simple network, this 10/100 switch is the way to go. No need to play around with software setup(s).

    Ordered the switch. Had to wait nearly a week for delivery as none of the stores had it in stock anymore: affecting the home networking to only one device.

    Honestly don't know how they give you this quality electronic gear for so cheap. Too bad Netgear doesn't make cell phones :-) , I'd be the first in line to buy one!!

    Being frustrated with slow wifi on Netflix and Amazon Prime, I installed this with connections to all tv's and pc's. It works beautifully, especially 4k streaming to my 75' SONY

    Needed to share a single outlet with multiple devices including a Sprint Airwave. Hooked it up and it worked like a charm! Was also able to hook up a spare Mac Book that was located close to the switch.

    No frills, workhorse switch. If you need a simple unmanaged switch, this will get the job done. Plug and play, nothing to configure. Has lasted me years.

    This is fast and simple to set up, and it works flawlessly. I needed an extra LAN port for a network storage drive. This works perfectly, and it's very fast.

    I went with the 100mbps switch. It works wonderfully. I was worried about the 100mbps. But, I can't tell any difference for what we use it for.
