Netgear FS105 Prosafe 5-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch
Solid Network Performance for Growing Businesses
Netgear's FS100 series desktop switches, known for their reliability and performance, provide your LAN with high-speed, 10/100 Mbps auto-sensing connectivity for as many as 5, 8, or 16 users. Just plug-in your Ethernet cables, connect a power cord, and you're ready to go -- there’s no software to configure. The switches negotiate to the fastest possible connection and with Auto Uplink technology, they automatically figure out if the link needs a straight through or cross-over connection, and makes the right choice.
Existing 10BASE-T devices are easily integrated within higher bandwidth environments, with full wire speeds on all ports of either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. Engineered without the need for internal fans, they operate silently and each switch is housed in a sturdy metal case for years of dependable use.
When you want solid network performance for your growing business, plus the added benefit of quiet operation, Netgear’s Prosafe FS105 is a great choice for quality, convenience, and smooth-running usability.
At Your Service
The 5-port model provides LAN access for many users. Models with 8 and 16-ports are also available. Every port supports up to 200 Mbps in dedicated bandwidth and traffic is forwarded with automatic flow control.Compact
The FS105 is solidly built in small sizes that are easy to position when space is at a premium. It is ideal for conference rooms, classrooms, study groups or small offices. Place it on any flat surface or use the included wall mount kit to tuck it out of the way.Simple To Use
Once you connect the hardware, your switch is operating. Auto negotiation takes care of the speed and duplex, while Auto Uplink takes care of the MDI/MDI-X connection. Eliminate the need for toggle switches or special crossover cables.Quiet
No fan means no noise, which helps maintain a peaceful atmosphere in your busy office.

I have now purchased three of these 5-port units and so far I have installed two of them. I have my internet wireless access point in a cupboard downstairs and use it wirelessly for occasional laptop use etc. However, for speed, complete lack of interference and reliability (especially the latter) I have personally always preferred a wired ethernet solution. I have four ethernet ports in the back of my internet access point (a 3 year old Belkin Wireless-N Router) and I have a long cable from each of these ports extending to key rooms in the house (e.g. the lounge or study). Then, currently at two out of the four of these room points, I have one of these devices connected to the room end of the long cable. That then gives me four free plug 'n' go internet points from one cable to the router. I can then connect any mixture of up to 4 internet accessing devices to each of these points (e.g. PC, HDTV, Games console etc).
Where I live, we do not get great internet speeds (no cable in the road) but even so we are very satisfied with the service we are getting via these devices. I have not noticed any slow down as a result of connecting multiple devices - although I do not generally have them all running at once as I can usually only be in one room at any one time. Download and upload speed test results seem unaffected. The major convenience is that all my devices can stay permanently and reliably connected and are therefore ready for use immediately on demand.Read more ›
The switch comes with no cables - this is clear from the description. But what to buy? Did I need patch cables; ones with cross-overs; straight ones; or what.
The answer is simple. The standard cables that you use normally to connect your PC to your existing hub/router will work fine with this. As far as connecting this switch to your router, as it is auto-sensing, any network cable of the right length is fine.
I just plugged it all together and it worked first time.
Now for those of you who have BT Vision boxes and BT Hubs (there must some more of us out there). I was worried that, according to the BT instructions, the Vision Box had to be plugged into the first port on the BT Hub (and I assumed that it wouldn't work any other way). Well, the BT instructions are over careful. I have this switch plugged into my BT Hub (not the first port - it doesn't seem to make any difference) with a 10 metre cable, and then from the switch I take my BT Vision box, a laptop cable connected into the switch (wireless is rubbish in my house due to all sorts of reasons) and, via a "network over the mains electric" box (see the Home plug range on Amazon Max Value 85 Mbps Home Plug Double Unit Pack ) a wired connection to the other end of the house. Everything worked first time and works reliably.
So my message to you is, "buy with confidence". I know that this switch is more expensive than some other options, but the total lack of hassle makes the difference worthwhile.
That's it. I 've never had to bother with it again.
