Netgear GS105E-100PES Switch (Gigabit Ethernet, 5-port, VLAN, Green Power) (Personal Computers)

Customer Review

I've been looking a switch with 802.11q (VLAN Tagging) support and this one was the most favorable with.

Before the switch is configured, the firmware and the configuration tool should be updated. Here are the downloads, the old versions of the CD you must not install only:



Problems (after updating the firmware and the configuration tool):

1) The configuration will only work with Windows, Mac and Linux users can not configure this switch.

As a platform Adobe Air was selected. Whether this is still working with the successors of Windows8 questionable, the unit can therefore may in a few years no longer be configured. An integrated web server would have solved this problem.

2) passwords to be sent to all network ports, and thus to all the computers in the same LAN segment in plain text and as a broadcast. Which full Stoffel has it please devised?

That is to communicate with it to the switch via broadcasts totally nonsensical. A web interface would not even let emerge the problem so expensive and the switch or only a few cents.

The password in plain text would be without broadcasts not so Arges problem, we have to do it with a switched environment. So the password but will be sent to all computers, whether they like it or not, they get it.

As a solution to 1) I have a Windows XP installed in a virtual machine.

As a solution to 2) you should switch to a port (eg 1), the VLAN 1, here turn then hangs the computer to manage the switch. All other ports (eg 2-5) should be in a different VLAN (for example, 2). So the broadcasts remain in the administration network (VLAN 1) and all other ports see any of it. Will you have to manage the switch to reposition precisely. This is thus a port loses a 5-port device is of course silly.


For the security issue, I prefer from a star. Everything else on the switch is done properly, with the windows Konfigwerkzeug I can live with considering the price.

The mentioned in other reviews problems "Ping Reply to all pings, the foreign IPs" and "DHCP client does not get IP" are resolved with the latest firmware. The ping problem has been repaired, the DHCP client timeout too short 15 to 60 seconds.

Anyone looking for a switch that makes everything right rather takes the Netgear GS108Tv2 (GS108T-100EUS). The cost twice, but also has a lot more capabilities, including 8 ports, a decent configuration interface and no broadcast nonsense.

Convenient but little do better Rank: 4/5
