I use this switch as an extension to my home network into my office. I have several computers in this one room and this small switch makes it easy to get them up and keep them there.

The one complaint I do have is that because it is a light weight unit it is hard to get it to lay flat because the cables make it buck if they don't lay flat. Otherwise, for the price it does exactly what was advertised.

Netgear switch review

By Sonja

from Brockton, MA

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about NETGEAR 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch FS605:

Our agency had multiples of these that were "work-horses" in the past years and only because of 2 sudden power surges that blew 4 of them out did we need to replace them with new ones. I attach our providers HP notebooks and work on multiple machines without any issues and have multiple ones attached to our clinical work areas so that our providers at any time can sync their patient data. I can always find this product at STAPLES knowing that it is a product that stands on it's reliability and performance.

Plug and Play

By Ed

Comments about NETGEAR 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch FS605:

Some things say "plug and play" but are far from it. This unit is indeed "plug and play". If you have one Ethernet cord coming in, just use this "switch" to add more internet devices. I use these to hook up IP Credit Card machines. A business will have a line running to their computer but it is far from their router. I merely use this unit and we now have both the computer and the credit card machine working at a very low cost and both still have separate IP Addresses. It needs an electric outlet close by but draws little power and the unit remains cool.

Netgear 5-port fast TEthernet switch fs6

By Sweet Lou

from New York, NY

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about NETGEAR 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch FS605:

Very easy to connect. We are in a very small area and the Netgear 5-port takes up a small space. We were able to hide behind a book where no one can disrupt it. We have tried many routers previously which were very bulky and took up to much space. The cost for the product was one of things that attracted us to it. Got back to the office disconnected the old router plug the netgear 5-port into the wall outlet, connected my PC's and printer and within seconds t was up and working. I would recommend this product.

Perfect ethernet expander

By Pap at LKN

from Lake Norman, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about NETGEAR 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch FS605:

Nooded just one more ethernet plug to be added to my router. Saw this at Staples, and decided to try it. First time I had used such a device, so didn't know what to expect. My first impression was that it was a well made device. It also worked equally well. Just pluged in the power supply, connected a line from the router to the expander, in addition to two devices. Everything worked when I applied power and checked the operation. I was very pleased with this purchase. The only improvement that I would suggest would be to be powered by the host using the power over internet, similar to the current USB system.
