Top customer reviews
The only improvement I would suggest is some kind of bracket to hold it, either on top of the desk or under the desk, because it is very light and is pulled down by the network cables.
I recommend this product if you are looking for a quick and easy way to expand your network.
It has allowed me to run a fast and trouble free network while other products have failed.
It's light & easy to install. Yes, wireless is rapidly replacing such tools and the necessity will eventually be diminished to such an extent that I suspect few people will be manufacturing these devices. But they offer stability and peace of mind, where wireless sometimes does not.
The green led's make it clear when data is being transferred and it comes with one ethernet cable. The slim and light, white box looks fine.
An Ethernet Switch is a great answer to this issue and requires absolutely no technical skill. All you need to do is plug in an Ethernet cable from your Modem/Router to one of the ports and then use the rest of the ports to supply internet via more Ethernet cables to any device that requires internet.
Even more useful, if you have a Homeplug/Powerline installed which only has one Ethernet out port, use one of these devices to give you another 8 ports to supply wired internet to your equipment.
This particular Netgear Switch comes with a nice looking white box with green LEDs on the front to show clearly where data is being sent and a power cable. There are, unfortunately, no spare Ethernet cables included, so it's worth ordering a few Amazon Basics cables (they're all pretty good in my experience) at the same time.
Brief instructions are included with a pictorial representation of the connections you will need to make, but it's all very simple and 5 minutes later it should all be installed and working.
