device

Reviews around device (3.89 of 5)

  • Works amazing, i attach multiple devices to my port and they all work amazing
  • Pro tip:One comment, on several reviews, saying that their device died an untimely death, is that it is really important to have surge protection for the power to these devices
  • This product is working wonderfully to add all our smart home devices and not have to have a separate router that may interfere with the original one.
  • No one can hack into this because it's pretty much a passive device.
  • I have four devices running through it at home and everything works perfectly

port

Reviews around port (3.44 of 5)

  • It replaces another Netgear switch that ports went bad only after a few years.
  • Remember you lose one port because you need one to connect to your router.
  • I initially thought 16 ports was overkill but, by the time I was done, there's only one free connection.
  • It seems to work just fine as long as you leave the ports static and don't disconnect a laptop and move it to a different port on the same switch.
  • I purchased a tester thinking it might be a cabling issue, but the testing confirmed both units had faulty ports.
