I have used several of these bad boys in small offices for expanding a single ethernet run for use with multiple devices. They wall mount easily, and are compact and reliable. At less than [$], I keep one in my truck with my spare Ethernet cables in case I need one at a client's office.

I do realize that this very affordable device would be no frills. It was easy to install and start up. I notice that when opperating two computers at the same time the secondary computer completely looses connection or goes to an incredibly slow connection. I just spent 8 minutes attemping to send a memo to 8 staff members. This process is usually done as fast as I can click send. It does work, but I do not recomend it if you have any time schedules that need to be kept you may want to spend a few more dollars.

Great switch for great price

By DWF

from Spokane, Wa.

Verified Buyer

Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch FS105:

Got this switch to replace an old 10 base T switch that was failing.
Speeds are much better and more consistent than the old switch.
Switch is very small and can be placed almost anywhere.
Great buy.

Blows up after a year !

By Dave

from Cranberry Twp PA

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

Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch FS105:

I bought two of these. Each one after about a year starts to work
intermittently. You unplug it and then it works for a while then
starts to act flakey again. I saw on the web other people complain about
that it starts acting flakey after a while. I made sure they got good ventilation
so I don't think heat was a problem for them. They never felt warm.

I have also bought a wireless dongle from Netgear that stopped
working after a while. I will not buy Netgear again.

Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch FS105:

This switch is great! We just plugged in the source cable to teh wall port and two cables for an X Box and a computer and it worked automatically. It does not care where the cables are plugged and it figures it out automatically.

Quality Control problem

By Tom

from Richmond VA

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

Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Switch FS105:

Had to return and exchange the unit. Net gear assembled the device with the wrong internal connector for the adaptor (pin too large). Where is the inspection for quality control? Checked out the replacement before leaving Staples and it was ok
