    It's excellent, the pre-assigned IP address is a bit goofy for a switch , fine and very useful and all, but I imagine a bit of a pain for non-tech / network savvy end users. If it happens to be within your existing subnet range, your all set,if it isn't, it's not a real pain to change but a bit odd for a switch. Just my two cents, but a darn good, cool to the touch, silent switch. 4-5 stars easy.

    Switch seems OK but Software is Garbage

    Needs better software. Not fully compatible with Windows Vista Home Premium and Internet Explorer 8

    Great Deal

    Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switch GS108T:

    This is a great product. It's got a lot of "enterprise" features at a consumer/SOHO price. I've owned three of these for around two years, with no failures or burnouts so far. Key features include VLANs, settable port speeds, SNMP bandwidth and error tracking, PoE powered device as an option (you can power it with PoE). How are these features useful?

    Situation: Two tenants, one LAN, one internet connection. Solution: VLANs.

    Situation: Air Conditioner with a fancy computer controller needs to be on a LAN to control it. Use VLANs to keep this unit entirely off of your LAN to improve security. (These things are hackable.)

    Situation: lame legacy device doesn't play nice on your new gigE LAN. Solution: set the port to be whatever speed you need, without negotiation.

    Situation: Your LAN needs to traverse a hallway to reach an office, and you are temporarily using a wire taped to the floor and covered by a rubber cable protector. Solution: use link aggregation to bond two ports into one, and reduce the problems of a damaged cable, and use SNMP monitoring to record errors. (Use Cacti to record the data.)

    Here are the headaches and problems: web gui is a little weird, but it's tolerable. The monitoring feature isn't 100% there - people report some dropped packets.

    Great product for the small net builder, small business network consultant, etc. Cisco features and Netgear prices, and without expensive service contracts.

      Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switch GS108T:

      Great little switch. We have over 15 of these deployed in our network closets. Low failure rate, high pass thru, jumbo packets, and, a metal case that won't degrade in enclosed environments in the summer sun. Throw in the GUI and it works. The T-200 version is much more robust than is smaller siblings in the 108 line which do a less than perfect job of handling the traffic.

      Lame management software

      Pros

      • Fast

      Cons

      • Poor Management Software

      Best Uses

        Comments about NETGEAR ProSAFE 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switch GS108T:

        The manual indicates you must configure your rounter so the unit uses IP# 192.168.0.x; this is an unexpected constraint. I did this to set it up, then switched back to my normal settings. The result is the management software does not work at all; it seems that it will only work as intended if the IP# is what they specify. This makes no sense and is far too limiting. I finally realize I don't really need to manage the switch; I just need a fast switch. So I have returned this unit and purchased another unit (TP-LINK® TL-SG1016D Gigabit Desktop Switch, 16 Ports).

            This switch is fully manageable. Easy to use web interface. I wouldn't buy this for home use unless you're doing something tricky like VPN. Great for small business!

            Was able to easily implement this into my existing network to expand it's capacity, as well as to facilitate a move to 10/100/1000 speeds from the previous 10/100 switch. Setup was simple, and the available features were surprising.
