    Networking Noob Couldn't Mess This Up

    I have a Google mesh network in my house, but each puck only has one ethernet port and I wanted to hardwire in my Xbox and PS4 (along with some other devices). I did some research and found this Netgear. Works just as advertised. Plugged it and the ethernet cords in and it all works seamlessly.

    I recently purchased this because when I upgraded my router it only had two ethernet ports and I have five electronics that needed ports. I did some quick searching and found this one and it works great. I haven't had a problem at all and set up was basically plug it in and turn it on.

    This switch works like it should. I also noticed that it and the included power supply run cold even with high network traffic. That implies that it does not use much power - a good thing. By comparison, the 100Mbit switch that I replaced with this one ran quite warm, as did the power supply.

    My home is so wired, I had to update from a 5-port switch to this 8-port one. Usual Netgear quality - just plug and play. Looks great next to my Smarthings hub and plays nicely with my router. No traffic issues so far and 4k streaming works fine.

    I run this switch in my garage, so 13 yrs ago I bought the 1st switch, same netgear 8 port unmanaged switch, the Fl heat doesn't seem to bother it and I checked the speeds, in 70 Degree or room temp, same performance.

    I ran out of Ethernet ports on my router so this smart hub extended the number of hubs for my smart TV, BlueRay player, receiver, printer, etc.

    Hooked this up to my Linksys Velop AC6000 Tri Band router system because of lack of ethernet ports and this baby shines. All my wired connections are running smoothly.

    This was easy to connect to my router and provide additional ports for hardwired computers in the house. It provided the increased capacity so that all machines can enjoy the same download and upload speeds.

    I got this to extend my home network via hard wire so I won’t have so many items on my WiFi and it works great. Good price and does the job

    This Netgear Gig switch is simple to install and just works, right out of the box. It has been running for about 4 weeks now with no issues.

    I got a new stereo and need a router switch with more inputs than I already had. So I replace a Netgear with 5 imputs with one with 8. Plug and play

    One of the easiest solutions to get super fast ethernet in a media center instead of using a wifi signal. It's as simple as plug and play, no set up required.
