Performance

I used to really like Netgear stuff, it was a good value and just worked. Maybe this switch was just a lemon but after owning it for a year or so the power connector started to go out. It would just reset itself when some tiny vibration jiggled it. It finally got so bad that the switch would just sit there tweaking out in reset mode. I guess I should have gotten the extended warranty, or a different switch.

I have several of these switches over here and ALL OF THEM have really bad power connector. Even tiniest movement disconnects it. Also, two of them are lying broken on the shelf as their power supplies just went bad (all equipment protected with UPSes). So if you're looking for any sort of reliability, do not buy these.

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.
