No hassles, works great.
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.
