This ethernet switch worked flawlessly and with no additional setup or programing. I uesd it to connect an internet TV, blu-ray player, and an AV reciever to a wireless bridge so that these items could be connected to my home wireless network. I have had the HP V1405-5G switch in operation for about three weeks with no problems.
