NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Smart Switch - GS108T-200NAS

NETGEAR’s family of Prosafe® Gigabit Smart Switches is purposely designed for SMB customers with high performance, SMB-oriented features and easy management. With 8 10/100/1000 Mbps ports, each capable of powering 2000 Mbps of data throughput in full-duplex mode per port, the GS108T is an ideal solution for extending network connections into conference room, labs, lobbies and department workgroups. It enables SMB networks to support Voice over IP (VoIP), streaming media, multicasting, security, and many other bandwidth-intensive applications like ERP and large file transfers. The GS108T comes with a comprehensive set of features, such as access control lists (ACL), 802.1x port authentication, enhanced QoS, rate limiting and IGMP snooping among others to provide a small or medium-sized business with a network that is geared for growth while ensuring performance and reliability.

In addition, the GS108T supports IEEE 802.3af standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE). It can obtain its power from either a PoE source or from an external AC power adapter. This gives an SMB flexibility when installing the switch in places where a power outlet is not present.

The GS108T comes with an intuitive, Web-browser interface which offer simple Smart Switch management, making it a snap to monitor switch performance, configure ports, even set up port trunks, VLANs, and traffic prioritization. Alternatively, you can use SNMP-based software to manage your Smart Switch. NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches are ideal for adding basic management to your unmanaged networks or extending your managed networks.


The GS108T provides cost-efficient solutions that enable SMB customers to better manage their network. Included are performance monitoring, port configuration, VLAN for traffic control, link aggregation for increased bandwidth, IGMP snooping for facilitating multicast applications, and Class of Service (CoS) for traffic prioritization.

Ideal Advanced Security
These Gigabit Smart Switches have advanced features that provide more robust security to SMBs. These include:

  • 802.1x for authentication
  • ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC or IP addresses

Advanced Quality of Service
Priority queuing ensures that high-priority traffic gets delivered efficiently, even during congestion from high-traffic bursts. Companies implementing network telephony or video conferencing, for example, need to be able to prioritize such voice and video traffic and other real-time applications over less latency-sensitive traffic to ensure reliability and quality. The ability to prioritize traffic ensures quality of latency-sensitive services and applications despite increasing traffic loads. The ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switch provides an extensive set of QoS features:

  • 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based prioritization
  • Rate limiting



  • Up to 60% lower power consumption
  • Auto power-down mode conserves energy when a port is not connected
  • Less transmit power when the cable is under 10 m
  • Packaging manufactured with at least 80% recycled material

5 out of 5 eggsTONS of feature for the price!

Pros: - VLAN upport
- STP support
- etherchannel support (incl. LACP)
- SNMP, NTP, port security, Layer 2 ACLs
- Dead silent

Cons: Could only be made better by adding a CLI, but it would probably suck anyway

Other Thoughts: For the price this thing is awesome. We're a Cisco shop through and through but inevitably end up needing some small workgroup switches at some branches. With this need, fear number one is users creating loops, but this switch runs STP....check

Also, we want management from across the WAN....check

On top of that we run APs with VLAN support and multiple SSIDs so we need trunk/tagging support on the switch interface....check! Granted we typically home run them back to our Cisco switch but once in a while the need is there.

The fact that you can power this from a PoE switch makes this GREAT for running one drop out to a workbench and powering this from our PoE switch.

Then we can monitor it with snmp (and syslog)....check. Restrict what hosts/subnets can admin the switch....check. Restrict the number of dynamic MACs per interface...check. Interface speed/duplex controls, and 1gbps, and full interface counters...check. Traffic shaping...I don't even need it but its there!

The reviewer who said you can't tag/trunk a bunch of VLANs up an interface is wrong. He doesn't know what he's doing.

I mean come on, for $80??!?!?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast switch easy setup.

Cons: Software is obstinate as to what folders it wants to use. This would not be a problem for most but I was changing the access to folders on the workstation at the time and the software refused to work with me IE installing on a different drive that had the access it was looking for.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to increase the throughput of a few workstations to my local server. It worked beautifully turned on teaming on the work stations and the switch picked it right up. This setup and switch are a bit over board for my needs but for the price having a little bit of breathing room is more than worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsGS108T

Pros: These switches I have a v1 unit as well as the newer unit and am getting ready to purchase my third. A great unit that works well. As all ways, Newegg rocks!

Cons: Three eggs cause:
wish they cost less
You do need to access them manually, the discovery software has never worked for me.

Other Thoughts: They can be a pain to access initially but once you are there and set them up, they are great. Have only had to do a reboot once.

4 out of 5 eggsNetGear GS108T

Pros: Supports true managed switch layer 2 functionality.
Configured for bonding and tested failover passes; as well as noticeable increaed throughput. Cheapest pro-grade managed switch out there. Good company.

Cons: Interface was kludgy and difficult to follow. Unit was not found on my network according to instructions. Had top seriously hack a PC to get it to show up. Once configured; however, runs quiet, cool, and very well. Tested redunancy successfully as well as bonding.

Other Thoughts: Overall, you get whay you pay for: I don't mind a difficult, one time only setup for an excellent product worth three times its price.

5 out of 5 eggsReally excellent switch at a good price

Pros: Features actually work (unlike most semi-managed switches)
Good performance
Good support
Poe powered
Metal case

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Really great switch. I had one problem with a firmware defect, reported it to Netgear support, and they fixed it and included the fix in the next firmware release. Now that's service. The switch accepts POE power on port 1 which is really nice, and all featured I have used (such as static MAC tables, port protection, NTP, etc.) all work perfectly. Very nice.

4 out of 5 eggsNetgear might be improving!

Pros: Smallest gigabit switch I could find with full management. Real true managed SNMP v1 thru v3 (not just RMON), web access, speedy, doesn't get too warm, nice lights I guess. :) Lifetime warranty? (more below) No problems so far!

Cons: As others have said, Netgear likes to make these little metal boxes that emulate larger 24 switches. They really should redesign it into a desktop-style switch so the plugs are in the back and the lights are in the front. That's something I really like about the 3Com 3CDSG8 (out of production), which I own 4 of.

While it doesn't get any warmer than my 3Com 3CDSG8, I do which it stayed cooler.

Other Thoughts: I've had 2 of Netgear's older 5 port gigabit non-managed switches and both died just after their year warranty. Because of that I stayed away from Netgear, but I recently needed a different brand SNMP switch for software testing and I took a chance on this. I'm happy to say it's been working just fine. Although it says it has a lifetime warranty, I've heard from some that might not cover the power supply, but you better believe they'll cover the power supply if this dies on me or I'll go 5 more years without buying a Netgear product!

Be warned, Netgear has a 16 port switch that seems very much like this one, but model # ends with an "E", not a "T", so it doesn't have true SNMP, just RMON. There's an 8 port "E" version as well. Apparently Netgear doesn't make a 16 port "T" version, but maybe they will someday.

3 out of 5 eggsMirroring Disappointment

Pros: 1) Works out of the box (without needing any custom configuration)
2) Quiet (no fans)
3) Over 2 years of service

Cons: 1) Not desktop friendly (network ports/connections are in front). To be desktop friendly ports/connections should be in rear and status on front bezel.

2) Web configuration is a little slow to load. Some link based images are small and difficult to click on. For instance arrows in the VLAN Membership configuration.

3) Substandard Port Mirroring. Transmitted packets of vlan untagged members are copied to mirror destination as vlan tagged. This can result in misleading network capture traces. Making issue diagnoses more difficult, complex and prone to misdiagnosis.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed with the port "mirroring" behavior of vlan untagged members. It’s more like a one way window than a mirror (see cons).

The mirroring behavior of vlan untagged members is in contradiction with the Software Administration Manual which states the following in the Multiple Port Mirroring section on page 216.

“The packet that is copied to the destination port is in the same format as the original packet on the wire. This means that if the mirror is copying a received packet, the copied packet is vlan tagged or untagged as it was received on the source port. If the mirror is copying a transmitted packet, the copied packet is VLAN tagged or untagged as it is being transmitted on the source port.”

Cons 3a) In the case where sniffer NIC strips vlan tags before passing packet up the stack, transmitted packets of vlan tagged members will be seen by the sniffer as untagged.

Cons 3b) In the case where sniffer NIC only passes untagged packets up the stack and discards vlan tagged packets, only received packets will be seen by the sniffer (half the conversation).

Cons 3c) In the case where sniffer NIC passes all packets up the stack unaltered (sometimes referred to as monitor mode enabled), transmitted packets of vlan untagged members will be seen by the sniffer as tagged.

Netgear Support Case is open for mirror issue. Details provided to Netgear. Awaiting resolution.

Disappointed with Netgear support. They won't go figure anything out on their own. Require customer to do all their for them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch in NetGear Environment

Pros: NetGear Web Management Interface and compatible with NetGear Smart Control Center. Supports VLANS and LAGs (Trunking). Best for an enterprise customer that needs to add devices at the edge of the network, and doesn't want to pull additional cables. POE is very handy for remote closets.

Cons: No CONS really. I have 5 of these running and they just work. I wish they cost a little less!
