5 out of 5 eggsSupports Web GUI for Management

Pros: new Web GUI and great features for the price. This is a sturdy Gbit Ethernet switch that includes basic managed switch features such as VLAN tagging, rate limiting, and port mirroring. Netgear has not update their datasheet for GS105Ev2, but the recent Firmware (1.3.x) now includes a web GUI and thus no longer requires using a Windows program (ProSafe Plus Utility) to setup and manage, see release notes http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/25397 for confirmation. Unit shipped with this latest firmware, DHCP client mode on, and with the Web GUI feature enabled. You can use a LAN scanner or your router's DHCP client list to find the assigned IP address and manage instantly from any browser without installing any software. Great little switch to add to your home/office LAN toolkit.

Cons: The ProSafe Plus Utility is the legacy method to find this device on your network and setup, but is only for Windows and is only available as unsigned .exe requiring admin rights to install (Windows will report publisher "Unknown"). By now, any software requiring admin rights should always be signed. This is actually a third-party utility from Flexera Software, which is reputable company and supplies such ID and Config utilities for several vendors.

Other Thoughts: This unit has amazing feature set for the price. I successfully used the port mirroring feature to monitor traffic between a device/computer and the rest of the network by mirroring the traffic from ports 1-4 to port 5 and attaching a Linux box running WireShark to port 5. Mirroring with a 1 Gigabit switch doesn't slow down network performance like my now ancient 10Mbit Ethernet hub (was not a switch, so always sends traffic to all ports).

5 out of 5 eggsNow Includes a Web Interface

Pros: This is a great switch. The older hardware revision didn't include a web interface. It had to be managed using a Windows client installed somewhere on your network. Version 2 of the hardware supports a newer version of the firmware that does include a web interface. The switch I received still had the older firmware preinstalled, but upgrading is a simple process.

Cons: I would be nice if Netgear made a 5 port switch that supported PoE on all ports.

Other Thoughts: This is the best 5 port switch with basic management that I have ever used.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Wireshark switch

Pros: Low cost "managed" switch
Port mirroring which means an easy way to monitor traffice with Wireshark
QOS based on port, perfect for my VOIP adapter

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The 8 port really jumps up in price, so I not sure why the 5 port is priced so low, I can buy two 5 ports cheaper than a single 8
