Good price, works as promised, nice metal case much better than the plastic cases on all my other hubs and stacks better with the nice flat top & bottom, uplink switch so that I can connect either from computer or another switch/hub without a cross-connect cable. Reviewers of the 8 port version warn of poor power supply connector, but I've had no trouble so far with it sitting on top of my desk with cord hanging off back, I've had longer life and easier setup on Netgear stuff than my Hawking and Taiwanese-based company stuff. I use it to connect my DSL modem to Netgear RP-614 internet sharing device with 4 port hub through 1 cable up to my 2nd floor where a hub in each bedroom and 2 computers tie to this switch, thereby using the Uplink feature (and needing it on more than one of the rj45s). Manufactured in China, I think. Going from 10 to 100mbps hub to 100Mbps switch does not cost much more power either. As with all these boxes, I'd prefer that the power supply was inside box, but external supply units are so much cheaper.

Great switch for the money. Plug and go! Mounting slots on bottom of unit allow you to mount on the side of your desk or on a wall, without having to rig something that looks embarrassing. Very compact, but tough as nails.

Product Overview

Solid Network Performance for Growing Businesses
NETGEAR’s popular FS100 series desktop switches, known for its 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. They negotiate to the fastest possible connection and with Auto Uplink™ technology, these switches automatically figure out if the link needs a straightthrough 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 of these very compact switches 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, FS108, and FS116 are your best choices for quality, convenience, and smooth — running usability — all at very affordable prices.

At Your Service
Five, eight, or sixteen ports provide LAN access for many users. Every port supports up to 200 Mbps in dedicated bandwidth and traffic is forwarded flawlessly with automatic flow control.

Compact
Solidly built in small sizes that are easy to position when space is at a premium. Ideal for conference rooms, class rooms, 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.
