    Despite the mesh wi-fi system I have installed in my home, I still like to have a good wired connection for some devices and I needed a small edge switch to reach into a corner of the house so I could connect up a couple of devices that had no wireless capability. As I’m a bit of a Netgear fanboy and have several of their managed switches already, I opted for this particular model, which at the time was cheaper than the roughly equivalent GS105E.

    Setting up is straightforward enough, and if you wanted you could just connect this to your network and do nothing else with it. But if you’re going to do that, I’d strongly recommend you go for a cheaper unmanaged one as you’re basically paying for things you’re not using with this. As I like to keep a close eye on my network setup and plan to extend to using the VLAN functions at some point (mainly to segregate my home automation system), this was pretty much the best solution.

    They’re great switches, but they aren’t the easiest to work…

    I’ve recently bought a Netgear GS305E & a GS308E to replace 2 ageing switches in my LAN, which I’m upgrading for better speed and reliability.

    Both new switches are well constructed in a steel casing and are working fine on ‘plug & play’ basis, with very little heat output.

    BUT (and I’ve come across this issue before), Netgear’s software (both the IP address-based management and the MyNetgear website) are awful and, seemingly, designed to make you want to jump out of the nearest window. I’m not exaggerating – Google Netgear Community complaints if you want. So, unless you’re a real expert and wedded to Netgear, I wouldn’t recommend these switches unless you’re happy to leave them working on an unmanaged basis.

    I can’t understand why Netgear didn’t address its software or customer service problems long ago.

    I bought this for one reason and one only – to reduce the amount of Internet bandwidth used by streaming services such as Netflix, NowTV and Amazon Prime which can cause frequent lag spikes when I’m gaming online on games such as Battlefield. The lag was so bad that games would become unplayable whenever my misses was streaming Netflix. I tried everything on my Router using the QoS features without any improvement at all. As all of my TVs are connected to the router via ethernet cables (over powerline adaptors) I used the rate limiting feature of the Netgear switch to limit the amount of bandwidth used by my TVs when streaming so they didn’t hog the bandwidth and hopefully reduce gaming lag. The TVs are all connected via the same ethernet cable from the powerline adapter next to the router. And it has worked a treat. I’ve limited the two ports connected on the Netgear switch to download at no more than 8Mbps which is enough for HD streaming and now I have no lag whatsoever when…

    A good product, efficient gets good reviews from the trade, however I want to give people 3 points to remember.

    1. If the switch isn’t detected on your router you have to temporarily disable the firewall, on my Virgin Hub 3.0 it was the “block fragmented packets” setting that caused the connection problems. Its included in the instructions in the very last paragraph on the back of the installation instructions and as it isn’t very clear I suspect its the main cause of negative reviews.
    2. Remember to assign a fixed ip address in your router dhcp tables or you will have problems if the device restarts because of power interruptions.
    3. Avoid the NETGEAR insight app for this device, its a sledgehammer to crack a nut and will baffle most people, the Web based Gui is much easier to use.
