Easy to Use
With NETGEAR's GS105, GS108 and GS116 desktop switches, you can take Gigabit to the desktop in minutes, just 'plug 'n' play'. Once connected, these switches provide you a powerful, high-speed network

Value for Money
The GS108 is an affordable Gigabit switch giving your network the capacity to handle heavy workloads and move very large files across your small business network instantly and easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Although a bit more expensive than it's 10/100Mb cousins the 10/100/1000Mb unit works every bit as well and, of course, allows Gbit networking. This mean for me that I can utilise fully my Virgin Media 120Mb broadband speeds with rather more devices than their four port router alone allows. Installation was perfectly straight forward (i.e. plug in the mains adaptor and your ethernet cables) and it works flawlessly. All sockets automatically sense correct speed and also which socket the router is connected to. Just make sure that if you are upgrading from the FS108 (the 10/100Mb device) you must use the new power adaptor as well. The new unit runs at a different voltage.

Are the ports input or output. I want to input 1 cable from my router (wireless not working) and then output to Sky box, AV amp, Bluray etc.

Can these units be daisy-chained?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes the units can be daisy chained (although bear in mind the further you chain them, bandwidth performance will be affected).
