2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Was fast and did what it needed to do.

Cons: Last few month I've been having issues, all kind of network issues. I kept thinking my router was the issue. Nope! Like others have stated, it just won't completely die! You receive temperamental speeds and it's really hard to narrow down the issue. On my desktop, it's working perfectly fine right now but if I remote into my server, it is fraken awfully slow!

First sign of trouble was my desktop wouldn't connect at 1gbps, only 100. Then the server started losing packets and just acting weird. I updated the nic card drivers 6 months ago and the problem went away.(coincidence) Then it came back last month so I replaced the nic in the server. Didn't solve the issue so I decided to run a new cable tonight because the cable was home made and looked kind of shot. Still nothing! I remoted into the server as it was directly connected to the router to test speeds and it was perfectly fine. Very hard to find the culprit since it wasn't happening all the time

1 out of 5 eggsSlowly moving away from Linksys

Pros: Gigabit...

Cons: Failure rate and the way it fails.

Other Thoughts: I used to be a big fan of Linksys. When I decided to upgrade my network to gigabit and Windows 7 I began to discover problems. Linksys seemed to refuse to release drivers for their 10/100 or gigabit internal NIC for any OS past Windows XP. So I had to go with Netgear and haven't had any problems. This switch finally died on me...well sort of. Luckily(sort of) I had another SD2005 to swap out and find out that it was in fact the switch was the problem. Like everyone else says, this switch doesn't just die, it annoys the bjeezus out of you. Going with a Netgear switch this time and am just waiting for this other SD2005 to slowly die too.

2 out of 5 eggsFixed Tons of these

Pros: When it works we have no issues.

Cons: Seems to be a problem with low quality capacitors but once replaced, unit works great.

Other Thoughts: If you have some soldering skills you can fix these easily. When you start losing packets and see slow downs, just pop the unit open and replace the popped caps. Good as new and will last forever. We've fixed tons of these and after replacing the caps they work fine for as long as we can tell.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi thedanofsteel,

Sorry to hear about your experience with the capacitors. We have very high quality standards for our products, and design and engineer our switches according to industry standards. We’re committed to proactively addressing any issues with our products and encourage you to contact Small Business support at [https://supportforums.cisco.com/community/netpro/small-business/sbcountrysupport] for further investigation into your problem or if you experience this problem again in the future. If the issue can’t be resolved, we’ll replace the switch if it’s within the warranty period.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 9 months

Pros: Cheap. High transfer rate while it worked.

Cons: It died. Max throughput is now >50Kbs. I doubted it was the switch so I tried different cables, NICs, ports. All pointed to the switch.

Other Thoughts: I have disliked Linksys because of the high rate of failure. With Cisco as the parent company I was going to give them a second chance. Back idea. Another Linksys to add to the brick pile.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible duplex issues

Pros: Cheap, small footprint

Cons: We've had seven of these switches so far and three have developed duplex problems. After a while the switch's performance slows to a crawl and you have to manually set the duplex on all your devices (problematic for apps that don't have an interface to do this) because the auto-negotiation fails.

Other Thoughts: Not worth it. Spend some extra dough and get a good switch.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi ctb,
Sorry to hear about your experience! We have very high quality standards for our products and design and engineer our switches to industry standards. This switch automatically sets duplex, so this issue is unusual. The problems you’re experiencing may be related to the device to which you’re trying to connect the switch. We recommend trying to connect a different device or NIC card to the switch and see if that resolves the issue. If not, we encourage you to contact Small Business Support at http://www.cisco.com/go/smallbizhelp for further assistance with this problem. And if it can’t be resolved, we’ll replace the switch if it’s within the warranty period. Thanks! We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback.

1 out of 5 eggsAfter 1 year it stops working

Pros: Gigabit speed.

Cons: After 1 year of ownership, the product failed, not stopped working completely, just dropped packets left and right and speeds slowed to slower than dial up. It couldn't handle PC and Xbox traffic. My ping on Xbox was 10ms when it was working...When it started failing it was up to 100ms and constant lag.

Other Thoughts: With all the bad reviews on this product, you would think there would be a recall of some sort. This a bad product that you should stay away from. This is the first piece of Linksys/Cisco equipment that has failed me. I'm quite disappointed, especially since they can't replace it. Now I have useless paper weight. Thanks Linksys/Cisco. Great quality products (sarcasm). Good thing I had a backup switch laying around.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo out of four have failed

Pros: Compact. Inexpensive.

Cons: I purchased four of these for my house LAN. Two have failed. One more is getting flaky.

Other Thoughts: The second one failed in a weird way and I spent a lot time diagnosing the problem. As others have mentioned, the switch doesn't just go dead. Performance gets bad and one sees lots of packet errors.

1 out of 5 eggs2 out of 2 failed

Pros: None.

Cons: They fail within 1 or 2 years - and they fail in such a way as to drive you nuts....they don't just shut off, they perform really terribly - and you waste time trying to figure out what's wrong - thinking it's the internet, or your computer.
Just a bad electrical design - probably they have amateur designers that under-designed the power supply/capacitors. Based on this I wouldn't buy any other linksys products - they don't have good engineers.
