Lets speed things up a little,
This review is from: Netgear GS605 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (Personal Computers)
I bought this much for the same reason one of the other reviews bought theirs "Jet Set". I was looking for a switch 100mbps to connect to a modem/router so that I would have a few more ports and not have to run cable from one end of the building to the other for each device being connceted. So I was kinda looking for a hub-like device but was advised to get a switch as it can manage traffic (or something like that) (can you tell I'm not that technically minded??)
Anyway I decided to go for the gigabit (1000mbps) instead, because it wasn't much more (price wise) and it'll do a bit of future proofing. I was considering a NAS with gigabit connection but I'm not sure which one to get (I would be greatful if anyone would have any suggestions?). The only device on the network at the minute which has gigabit nic is a ps3 but i was also thinking of getting PCs upgraded to gigabit. But at the minute there's no point as theirs not a lot of network traffic but maybe in the not to distant future this could change.
It's really easy to connect up, just plug all in, green/yellow indicates gigabit connection and orange indicates 10/100mbps connection and it's as simple as that.
thanks for reading.
