NetGear GS605 5 x 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Switch
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I have (had) two of these switches. They look nice and seem well built, but ultimately both have either failed or got some weird issue which massively limits their throughput in a mixed network.
As with many people with a relatively large home network, I have a wireless router (an Airport Extreme in my case) in the heart of things, with some wired connections out to fixed devices - for me this being AV stuff around the house plus a Synology NAS. Where the wired kit is connected, I use unmanaged switches to multiply the connections.
One and then the other of these switches caused me significant head scratching and stress by suddenly slowing network traffic to a crawl. they didn't do the decent thing and just die, oh no. They still sit and flicker green and yellow lights and make you THINK things are fine, but in fact they are not. We are talking about a movie transfer going from <1min to about and hour, so a serious slow-down.
I have just tested both again while I had a cheap TP-Link 5-port switch handy. With the Netgear switches, files are slowed to a crawl, with the TP-Link swapped in, <1min for a 4GB file
If this had just been one faulty switch, I would not have minded (much) but having the same fault replicate on two separate switches is unacceptable and I will not purchase another Netgear unit. Even if it is some weird compatibility issue, it amounts to the same - an unusable product.
The device is small and comes with a stand to allow the unit to stand vertically on the desk.
It comes with 5 ethernet ports and power supply port on the rear.
I used a standard ethernet cable to connect one of the ports to my ADSL router and the other ports to other devices.
I could access all devices from my PC as if they were attached directly to my ADSL router so I had no configuring of any sort to do. It is as if I had a 7 port ADSL router.
(4 port router and 5 port netgear but one of each is taken up with the connecting cable leaving 7 ports)
I have tried this with two different routers and the netgear switch operates on both with no problems.
I have tried copying files from one device to another but it is inconclusive due to the devices being used but I am getting a speed about 4 - 10 times faster than before, providing I copy from a device attached to the switch to another attached to the switch. It autodetects the speed, showing max at all times when I am using it.
If I copy from a device attached to the router, to a device attached to the switch, it would fall back to the low speed of the router. So make sure that all gigabit devices are attached to the switch and other devices to your router (unless this is also a gigabit router).
Works fine, no problems, didn't need to read any instructions.
No instructions required, literally plug in cables to any of the 5 ports, it self-detects speed etc indicates 10/100 in orange and GIGe in green. Nothing more to it. No interface, no software just true plug n play, ideal for simple home networking.
Only mild negative:
The activity flashing on the port numbers, they all "appear" to flash at the same time regardless of which port has traffic. At this price, I don't mind, it works and I'm not watching the lights.
Would recommend fixed IP setting on NAS (or any other key service) for ease of finding services that you may want to ssh onto or port forward to from router.
The gigabit Ethernet unmanaged switch does what it says on the tin! It is simple and easy to set up.
All you have to do is take the switch out of the box, plug it into an electrical wall socket. Insert your main Ethernet cable that is coming from your router (in this example) into one port (which is highlighted for you on the switch itself) and use the other ports to connect your various Ethernet enabled devices. It is that simple, no need to read long manuals or install some silly software on your PC or Laptop.
Once set-up it just does the job.
I have mine set-up downstairs in the living room. I have one port connected to my home Ethernet network and the other four ports connected to the various devices within the vicinity, such as internet enabled television, internet enabled blu-ray player, network enabled media player and Ethernet enable television receiver.
You can not go wrong and it has not failed me till this day!
This product was out of the box and hooked up working within 5 minutes and i have not touched it since, it's silent, small and neat....great!
