    All in all, I'm very happy with this switch...

    Rachmat Kaligis | 16 March 2016 | In the version: 5 | Yes | No | 1 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Manageable (status and error)
    • Firmware is upgradable
    • VLAN support
    • QOS support
    • Solid construction (metal cabinet), compact, wall-mountable
    • Limited documentation
    • Somewhat cumbersome way of configuring (VLANs)
    • Netgear support website continues to complain about registration for download firmware and documentation (work-a-round possible)

    Introduction
    I bought this 5 port switch in combination with a GS108Ev2. This is the 8 port big brother from this series. Of course there is quite a bit of choice in the market when it comes to fanless swithes.

    VLAN support
    I came to choose this series because I need an extra separate network connection for digital TV (Solcon-Glashardt) for my upcoming fiber optic connection. Because I only have one good Cat5e cable between the meter box and my TV and I don't feel like a wireless solution, a swictch with VLAN support could be a solution.
    Normally you will soon arrive at a switch of more than 100 EUR with a built-in FAN, but that is a bit overkill for my meter cupboard.
    By placing the GS105E) next to my TV, I am able to hunt multiple networks together over 1 cable (Trunken via 802.1q).

    Out of the box
    The GS105E comes with a CD (handy without a CD player in your laptop) containing the management software.
    The device looks solid and has a steel casing and is closed from the top. It feels fairly heavy, so the switch stays put even if there are a few cables in it. The case also has the option to attach a Kensington lock (handy for use in an office). In addition to being placed on the legs, the switch can also be mounted on the wall (both horizontally and vertically).

    Installation
    After first installing the software from the CD, I thought it would be wise to get the latest versions of Firmware and Management software first. It soon became apparent than expected that the products would be registered. I did this well. But when downloading, the popup kept coming back asking to register (which I already did). With some tweaking (copying the URL and pasting only the last part in the address bar) I manage to download the latest management software and firmware. Fortunately, the management software is suitable for both models. The firmware, on the other hand, is specific and also looks different.
    To install the firmware, the switch must have an IP address in the same subnet as the PC. Because I initially connected the switch stand-a-lone to my laptop, the device got an IP address in the range 192.168.0.x, my laptop is in 192.168.1.x. That didn't work, so I set up a fixed IP. Afterwards, I was difficult, because the switch could simply get an IP address via DHCP.
    Then install the latest firmware with the management software. For the GS108E I had to do that in 2 times. The first time the switch booted in a kind of minimal fashion where the management software immediately asked for the image. With the GS105E, everything went right the first time. With the GS108Ev2, the switch was operational again after the 2nd time uploading the firmware and all settings were saved. It's nice that you can set a name for each switch in your network yourself. That makes it easier to recognize which device you're setting up with. Furthermore, each switch can be protected with a password.

    Functionality
    I already mentioned the possibility of using VLANs. You have the choice for basic port based and advanced 802.1q VLAN management. Only the last option was suitable for me. All in all, I thought it was a bit cumbersome. In advanced mode you can create VLANs and hang any port and 1 or more VLANs. Next, each port must have a primary VLAN ID, in case untagged packets arrive on it. Outbound can be specified whether traffic should be tagged or not. In most cases you only do this on the trunk ports, in order to separate the VLANs.
    Yet there are also fiber optic modems that give VLAN tags to the Ethernet packets. If they have to be kept, then that is possible.
    In any case, I managed to trunk 2 VLANs over 1 port, the reason why I bought this switch!
    Furthermore, the switch has 802.1p QoS capabilities, or can be chosen for Basic prioritization of the ports (high or normal). I have not tested this further.
    Furthermore, the switch has an interesting possibility to monitor which ports have a link and to see if there is traffic and any errors on a port.

    Energy efficient
    Both the GS108E and the GS105E come with an energy-efficient adapter that takes up little space in the socket. The switches use a maximum of 4W and ports that are not used make the switch even more economical.
    Although the swicthes do not have a power switch, the GS105E had a switch in the cord. I just don't really see what the point of that could be, other than a reset?

    Price
    I bought this switch (GS105E) for EUR30. The 8 port brother (GS105E) cost about EUR42. A very favorable price considering the functionality and reliability.

    Guarantee
    Netgear provides a lifetime warranty on its products (including the power supply!).

    Conclusion
    All in all I am very satisfied with this switch (and also with the 8-port version). The possibilities, price, guarantee, etc. It is good for each other. Documentation could have been better, and Netgear's website wasn't cooperating either, but that's the only flaw I can mention for the time being.

    Bought this switch based on the many positive reviews. Unfortunately I had problems with my first exam sample. This switch installed between Smart TV and Nas, previously no problem with Black Box's 4-port gig switch. When streaming content from the NAS to the TV, I got 'connection lost' messages after hours with the new netgear. Have tested cable connections, tried other cables, after 15 minutes again 'connection lost' and 'could not find server'. Very frustrating! Then I brought out the old switch and the problem was solved. Coolblue gave me a new netgear (same type) very quickly (thanks) but to no avail... after 5 minutes of streaming again 'connection lost'... The problem is known on various forums. Could be due to the use of less friendly 'capacitors'. Prefer a different brand this time.

    • VLAN !!!
    • Turn 1 nic into several.
    • very stable.
    • standard IEEE 802.1Q , no own baking
    • 5 ports is little .. 8 ports is not much more expensive
    • Setup works with adobe air on windows machine.

    IEEE 802.1Q advanced possible for vlan setup.

    Ideal for computers that have size 1 Ethernet port available and where installing a 2nd is difficult. Intel NUC, Laptop etc..

    On your computer you can create multiple virtual interfaces that each correspond to a vlan . eg 4 interfaces on your PC then correspond to ports 2 3 4 and 5 on the switch. All traffic then flows over 1 cable to the PC that is connected to port 1.

    Works very well with ESXi (vmware), with all linux flavors , freebsd .. for windows you need a good nic. most intel cards have drivers where you can create virtual devices with vlan. :

    Very useful also for firewall setups. Much better solution than a USB->Ethernet module.
    This is a wonderful product that people usually overlook the usefulness of.

    Solid and simple
    • Solid
    • Simple
    • economical

    A sturdy little box with clear LEDs, easy to hang and sturdy rubber caps so that it can also stand firmly. The low temperature of the cabinet shows a modest energy consumption. The power transformer could have been a little more efficient. And, not unimportant, plug in cables, plug in the socket, try out the communication from the equipment behind it: it works immediately.

    tv switch

    I use the netgear switch for my digital TV receiver, I have 2 TVs connected to this. I have perfect HD reception on the two TVs.
    from the fritzbox 7360 then comes the netgaer switch to which I have connected 2 TVs with 10 meters of ethernet cable each itself then I still have no loss of image quality

    Managed switch for the price of an unmanaged switch!
    • MANAGED SWITCH
    • Port Mirroring, Monitoring
    • Price/quality ratio
    • Solid housing and finish

    Solid MANAGED switch for the price of an unmanaged switch! Numerous possible settings via the web page of the swtich. This page is clear and user-friendly.

    I think it's in the wrong category because of coolblue. Located at the "unmanaged switches" although you can manage/set many functions per port: Monitoring, mirroring, VLAN, Qos,...

    I use this for monitoring; this can easily be done with the "mirror" function.
    Extremely satisfied with this Netgear! Recommended!

    Just one good thing
    • Easy installation (plug and play)
    • PoE ideal for access point and cameras
    • Simple Web Interface
    • Completely silent
    • Limited management

    Does what it should, purchased for PoE for two access points. The web interface is quite simple, but there are no extensive management functions.
    Works plug and play, completely silent.
    Rather hefty adapter (almost larger than the switch) but that is of course necessary for 4 PoE ports.

    Great product for a small price
    • Plug & Play
    • Easy to set up
    • Good price/quality ratio
    • Software is limited
    • Power connection fragile

    I needed a network switch for a LAN party (an evening where each friend brings their own PC/console to play together). I didn't want to spend too much money on it, since we don't have a LAN party very often.

    When I took the device out of the box, it felt sturdy and solid. It is a small box made of metal, with the possibility to hang it on the wall (or possibly on the bottom of a desk). What I did notice was that the connection for the power is quite vulnerable.
    Due to the build quality and chosen materials, I give the product 4 stars for reliability.

    After the product was connected, it worked almost immediately without the need for any software.
    It does not matter in which port you put the 'input' internet cable, it can be in any port. This is checked by always changing the internet cables and then doing a speed test via the same PC.

    A CD-ROM came with the software, but I recommend always downloading it from the website to get the most recent version. I would also like to indicate that the minus point stated by Coolblue itself is an incorrect/unclear minus point, since you have software for it, and no browser is involved (provided you use the CD-ROM to install the software). ).

    First I noticed that there was no option to put the program in Dutch, so I had to make do with English (German and French were also an option). The software was fairly simple and generally straightforward. You can protect the switch with a password, so that not everyone can change the settings. You can also edit individual connections, adjust DNS servers, create virtual networks and prioritize certain internet traffic. Creating and managing virtual networks via the software is quite a job, since the options are not always clearly indicated to get this done.
    This is why I give 4 stars for installation & ease of use and 5 stars for possibilities, because of the many options for this price.

    In terms of speed, it is suitable for normal home use (emailing, watching videos and streaming movies/music) and it can also handle the more demanding tasks such as a LAN party due to the 1000 Mbps it delivers for each port. For this reason I give 5 stars for speed.

    To be honest, I didn't pay attention to the energy consumption, since a LAN party (where up to 5 computers and 3 consoles including monitors are on at the same time) already consumes a lot of energy, so that the energy consumption of the switch is not noticeable. The specification list set up by Coolblue does not state anything about energy consumption. The supplied adapter states that it supplies 12V and 1 Ampere. This is not too bad compared to the devices you will probably hang on it.
    That's why I give 4 stars for energy consumption.

    All in all, this is a very good buy for LAN parties, but also for expanding the internet network and connecting multiple devices wired. Also, the lifetime warranty is a wonderful addition to this product, considering the price. To arrange the warranty through Netgear yourself, you do need an account, which is recommended as it also offers many other benefits, such as notifications about firmware updates and customized support.
    I could recommend this product to everyone.

    it's a great device
    • easy to use
    • nice and fast
    • plug n play

    When I received this switch I immediately started working on it. I quickly found out that really anyone can use this device. It is just plug in the socket and connect it to your router or modem by means of a UTP cable and it works.
