NETGEAR ProSAFE GS108E 8-Port Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switch (GS108E-300NAS)


Today’s growing businesses are both placing more demands on and relying more on their network. Companies are putting more applications and demands on their Ethernet Infrastructure. Using VoIP phones and IP cameras require more than simple plug-and-play connectivity. Additionally, Internet-based applications such as Hotmail and Google Calendaring have made keeping the network up a business-critical need. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches. NETGEAR’s new ProSafe Web Managed (Plus) Switches meet this growing need by providing easy to use visibility and limited configuration capabilities. To provide more insight into the network behavior, ProSafe Web Managed (Plus) Switches offer traffic monitoring for users to observe traffic behavior. Additionally, if there are connectivity issues, these switches offer a cable diagnostic test capability that can identify and even locate problems in the cables. To optimize traffic through the switches, ProSafe Web Managed (Plus) Switches offer both port and tag-based prioritization to keep latency-sensitive traffic moving ahead of less critical packets. ProSafe Web Managdd (Plus) Switches offering these monitoring and configuration capabilities at a slight cost premium over un an aged switches, delivering great value to the end user. In addition to its power-saving Green Ethernet technology, GS108E switch comes in a sturdy metal case with a fan-less design for silent operation.

    Excellent product, with only one minor flaw., February 26, 2007

    If you’re looking for an affordable gigabit switch that doesn’t suffer from strange auto-negotiation (speed/duplex) problems, this switch is for you.

    This product is easily superior to the Netgear GS605, which may appear identical in functionality, but in actuality is not. The GS605 behaves very badly when it comes to speed and duplex auto-negotiation, resulting in incorrect speed being negotiated with Marvell, some nVidia, and some Broadcom PHYs. The GS105 does not suffer from these problems, proving the hardware in the GS105 differs from that of the GS605.

    The GS105 also has an incredibly small AC adapter; it’s no where near “brick” size. However, on a power strip that has AC outlets next to one another (horizontal, not vertical), this product will probably block the AC outlet next to the one you install it in. This won’t happen with vertically-oriented power strips. Just a FYI…

    The reason I ranked this product 4/5 stars is because of temperature — the GS105 runs incredibly warm (borderline hot) for such a small device. Other users have reported the same issue. It’s a minor drawback, but is worth noting for others who may wonder the same question.

    If the temperature is a big concern, consider purchasing a Hawking Technologies HGS5T, which is identical in functionality to this product, runs much cooler, but has a larger footprint, and a “brick” AC adapter.

    IT’S SMALL!, August 24, 2007

    I think this was the smallest gig switch I could find, so I bought it. I’ve owned several other Netgear switches and have really liked them. This one is no different – works as advertised straight out of the box, although a bit warm as many have mentioned (a Netgear feature). All ports are on one side, and I like the fact that it has mounting holes and hardware that permit you to hang it out of sight so all that cable mess can stay off the top of the desk. Mounted with the ports facing down, all cables come up into the box neatly so I didn’t experience any cabling issues as some have mentioned. Two thumbs up!

    This switch is designed to fail. Period. Several of ours failed. Instead of bothering with the steps below or an RMA and waiting for replacements, we went with Cisco/Linksys. Switch prices are now so low that we can’t be bothered with Netgear’s bad design and poor QC.

    Unless you’ve got the tools, there are better switches out there designed to last without all of the folderol below. But, for the handy and prepared, this switch can be resuscitated over and over. Read on…

    In looking at the reviews, it seems that Netgear has not fixed the fundamental flaw on this switch’s mainboard since ver 1. I’m seeing in reviews that ver 3′s are still failing. What’s the built in obsolescence of this switch for the unsuspecting consumer? There are two capacitors on the mainboard, that for whatever reasons, FAIL FAIL FAIL.

    Don’t believe it? Do a Google search for Netgear GS 108 and blinking lights (of death). You’ll find all sorts of posts about how to identify the bad capacitors, remove them, buy replacements at Radio Shack and then, yep, solder them back on to the board. Here’s a link to a great step by step to repair this switch because it will fail. doubleu.doubleu.doubleu.codeproject.com/Articles/204922/Netgear-GS-Blinking-Link-LEDs-Can-we-fix-it-Y

    Unless you have a) a soldering iron, b) the know how to use it or c) someone handy at home, skip this switch and look at either Cisco or LInksys. Shame on Netgear for still selling this switch without fixing its mainboard.
