Does the job, seems reliable. I bought this for a client to replace a D-Link that had a port failure. Disconnects All Systems and Dies I am unbelievably frustrated by this product.

Netgear 10/100Mpbs switch This unit replaces a 10Mpbs switch. The old unit was replaced in minutes with the new one which is working fine. Just what I wanted Well put together solid unit. Metal case and new more efficient external power supply.

Gets the job done A little outdated having so many 100MB ports but it gets the job done if you need a GBIC slot. Technical support is very good.

i just like the idea of the 10/100/1000 mbps rate. i can connect to my other computers faster w/o any hang ups. The switch does its job. Delivers gigabit speed in a small metal case. The version I received supports jumbo packets, full duplex and auto-uplink. This switch is exactly what I want. The size is very compact for a 8-port switch.

I am using this hub to connect two computers, a digital TV, and two printers in my home office. Good and reliable product. Two ports used with power and the rest without. Worked just fine. Easily Expanded","Easy To Set Up","Reliable

On the box its a VPN/firewall/router. Well the thing is nothing more than a good door stop. It crashes all the time and takes forever to reboot. If you were thinking of buying this router and putting your clients public WAP (WRT300N) in the DMZ forget it. Nice reports and logging.

I used this as a replacement in an existing system. The network setup required no programming of the unit. I expected to replace the existing switch. I make a lot of online purchases and would have no hesitation purchasing from PC Nation again in the future. Great experience... The best thing that you can say about a switch is that it works. I needed a POE switch to set up some Cisco VoIP phones for a training event.

I have used two other switches of another brand, both lost ports. Have one of these at work with no problems so got this one to use at home.

Do not buy this product Netgear have accepted there is a firmware problem with this device which causes it to hang every 3 or 4 hours. Almost a good piece of kit For the average wired office or home network this is a good piece of kit.
cwongcpa 6:54pm on Sunday, April 18th, 2010 
The problems with this router are well documented, it is just a third rate product. Hopefully a firmware upgrade will make it usable someday. I bought 4 FS-116 when it was on-sales. It was the least expensive 16 ports I can find at that time. Inexpensive. Pro look Dead immediately.
