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.

I thought that by buying this product I could share the Internet with my son. But found out I still needed a DSL modem in order for both of us to be on line at the same time. Boomer!

        Comments about NETGEAR 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch FS605:

        I purchased this product because I trust the name, "NetGear", for it's reliability and functionality. It serves its purpose in my business. I often have from two to three computers and or laptops that I have to connect to the internet for test purposes. Now that is separate from my wife's office machines upstairs. Before it was difficult to juggle as to which of us was going to dominate the internet that day and for how long. It doesn't matter anymore with the NetGear I have purchased for my business. Thank You NetGear.

        works exactly as it should

        Comments about NETGEAR 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch FS605:

        I purchased this to add more hard plugs into my wireless router. Some of the electronics in my home had to be hard wired and I always prefer to have my main computer hardline whenever possible to keep the speed up. This 5 port switch worked exactly as advertised. It was very simple, basically just plug in to electric and plug in the items you want and plug into your router. You do lose one router plug to plug in the switch but you gain 5 which work great. There has been no speed loss to the internet and it has been perfect.
