Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can cause problems on the LANThese are cheap switches, and you get what you pay for. Since there's no documentation, we had to find this out the hard way:These Netgear switches have short MTU of about 1300. So while your PCs and servers default to MTU of 1500, these switches break each full packet into two, which are then re-assembled at the destination. That process creates about 2X the network traffic, 2X the switch processing, and 2X the NIC processing overhead. In my experience, too many of these switches on an active LAN can quickly flood your network and overwhelm the switches.Instead, we upgraded to the Netgear GS108T managed switches, with variable MTU settings beginning at 1500. They give us far more control, and our network problems disappeared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product unreliableHas minimal ports, used it for about a month, and lost signal to two of the 4 ports available, unreliable after only a short period of time, cost money for down time to find replacement, not made to withstand minimal usage, this product was used maybe 3 times a week for about 3hrs a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little switch for the priceNetgear makes great little switches for home or office use. I have a few of these installed at my customer locations when I need extra ethernet ports at a persons desktop. I would recommend this.
