Performance

The Netgear switches keep getting better and better. This model comes with a much smaller power supply than the older ones do. Like other gigabit switches it does run rather hot. The colors on the front number-shaped lights are easy on the eyes and not too distracting. Performance is very good especially with the new jumbo frame support.

I want to inform people that I used to have a linksys 5 port fast ethernet switch (100mbps) and when I wanted to transfer large files from or to my xbox the connection would sometimes time out for some reason. I tried troubleshooting this and couldn't figure it out? So I saw this great deal for a gigabit switch for around 29 after rebate and I thought it won't hurt to try it. I have a 2 xbox's, 1 linux desktop, 1 winbloz xp desktop, and a roommate that has winbloz xp al sharing an internet connection and all my computers share files and use the linux desktop as there backup server. When I tried this thing out, awesome!!! No more timing out and I was transferring files a little faster then the fast ethernet switch, it makes a huge difference on smaller files but only a little difference on large files but at least now I can count on a 3.9 gb file completely transferring without me having to check on it and restart the transfer. I use FlashFXP as my ftp client and avalaunch 49.3 (I think) as the ftp server on my xbox's. This is great!!! It also compliments my netgear router I already have, so now my router can just be a router/dhcp server instead of a router, switch, and a dhcp server and this way, if I do ever need anymore spots, i'll just connect to the router, there's 4 open ports on the router.
