5* Simple and Easy
Reviewed by Zeth on 14/10/2012
Netgear = easy and simple. Plug in power on and it's working. Little stand with item, small and hides well behind my screen.
5* plug&play?
Reviewed by Anonymous on 02/11/2009
Bought device after nice reviews, yet find none of it applies to a Virgin Media connection. After 15 minutes still switching computers,switch and surfboard on and off in an attempt to get more than one device to connect to the internet let alone anything else...
5* Perfect
Reviewed by Anonymous on 21/07/2011
Connected to router with 20M cable. Connected instantly. LED indicator to show the connection speed between the devices. Orange 10/100 Megabits per second. Green 1000MB a sec. Excellent for the price. No problems occurred so far. Would recommend for anyone who uses multimedia over the network and anyone who wants to expand a wired Ethernet network. Very happy with product.
5* Great device for home networking
Reviewed by Gary Streeter on 15/11/2007
I use one of these switches to link 3 PCs to a BT Home Hub router/ADSL via a HomePlug network. Despite all the various components in this configuration it works a treat. The PCs can talk to each other directly without accessing the HomePlug network or hub and the internet is accessible to all devices. No configuration required out of the box. Great device, great value for the price.
5* Does the job well
Reviewed by Martin on 20/08/2010
Had a few of these and they have all been easy to use.

As most people have said, its just plug power cable and network cables in and away you go.

Not sure what the Virgin Media customer was doing wrong, but I've installed one of these for a friend on virgin media.
5* Simple to share a BT Home Hub connection
Reviewed by Gareth J M Saunders on 02/12/2009
I've used Netgear switches, routers and wireless access points in the past when I had a 10 Mbps cable connection via Telewest Broadband a few years back and found them to be fast and reliable.

So when I realised that I needed a new switch to share my BT Home Hub connection (seriously BT, only 2 ethernet ports?) I didn't think twice about choosing Netgear.

Simplicity to use: plugged in the cable from the BT Home Hub to switch into port 1, cable from my PC into port 2, cable from my wife's PC into port 3. Switched on. Connected.

If only everything in life was that simple.
5* very good
Reviewed by mark on 12/02/2012
pluged in to my virgin boardband and it just works I use a 5 port and 8 port netgear switches
5* Top class
Reviewed by Craig on 23/09/2007
So easy, just plug in and it works. The gigabit standard incorporates autosensing so you don't need a crossover cable to connect it to another switch or router, though it will still work if you use one. Great, fast, easy.
5* netgear 5port switch

5* GS605
Reviewed by Ron on 16/04/2007
Easy to install, just follow the simple instructions and it took less than 5 minutes. I did use a 'cross-over' cable as my Broadband Rouer did not have an 'up-link' port.
