Setting up a home office or a small office? Well, while it's normally difficult to get excited about network switches, this switch just might be worth getting excited about. The Linksys SRW2008 WebView fully managed switch brings gigabit speeds to your users, while adding a whole new level of intelligence and security to network. The eight 10/100/1000 Mbps ports enable you take advantage of the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces shipping on the current generation of servers, workstations and storage devices, in addition to supporting existing 10/100 Mbps clients.

The optional mini-GBIC ports allow you to expand network as your business grows.For security, the SRW2008 incorporates IEEE 802.1 VLANs, IEEE 802.1X port authentication and MAC-based Filtering. Along with that, the switch has Access Control Lists (ACL), which provide more granular security settings, but also improved QoS control through IEEE 802.1p, Diffserv or ToS prioritization schemes. The enhanced QoS capability, combined with the SRW2008's advanced traffic management features ensures clear and reliable voice and video communications.

So, are you starting to get excited yet? Then check out this switch and get your network up and running!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good so far

Pros: Does as advertised though I have not used all the features. Has the usual issue that no networking vendor has really been able to solve in totality - Autonegotiation. Was having frequent link failure as user above but after hard-setting every device to 1000MegaBit/FullDuplex (or whatever their max link speed was) I had no link problems at all. Not worth an egg because I have seen this issue with the biggest and the best. I was very happy with the way the VLAN's worked and, really, this is a protocol specific Layer 3 as I was able to do IGMP forwarding between VLANS and that was great! Spanning Tree helps, specially since I've got strange neighbors who experiment with IP's and wi-fi a lot and since I use NAT too, I was able to feel safe that I would'nt end up looping (I have the guest VLAN set up for wi-fi though I secure it) also because our complex's network comes offa this big mojo CISCO router which is open to anyone's finger ... I have not used much else except for QoS dynamics Wok

Cons: I do not think it is a con but in this age and day where everyone uses web based interfaces for everything and their dog, I prefer the console interface. It is faster and if you mistype or something, you dont have to wait till next morning for the web interface to read the whole form and tell you that 1O.10.10.l is not a valid IP address (the IP I typed reads one-alphabet "O".ten.ten.Alphabet Lowercase L. ;P) These low end boxes neither have the memory nor the processing power to do web stuff to satisfaction or timeliness. Linksys does not inspire confidence in me but after CISCO took them over, I noticed their product quality had greatly enhanced. I do not know much about networking and have not used much aside of IGMP snooping and QoS grouping. Worked well. Oh yes, did I mention that this was a layer 3 switch? You can IP route with it and save yourself a router purchase. And yes, use the Web Interface and see network traffic fall! Low processing power as mentioned above :)

Other Thoughts: Linksys does not inspire confidence in me but after CISCO took them over, I noticed their product quality had greatly enhanced. However they are in the very low range of the network device streams; making SOHO and home networking products so I would use their product in non-intensive and low-redundancy environments. Compared to them, I think D-Link is as good, cheaper and may be better...

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: SNMP monitoring per port, LACP, web/telnet/ssh configuration,QoS, etc.

Cons: IE-only web config

Other Thoughts: This little switch works fairly well, had no issues setting it up and playing with the advanced features. I have the big-brother 24 port SR2024 non-managed version as well. That one is fairly loud, this 2008 has no fan. The port throttling/QoS works well too, you can set each port's inbound/outbound bandwidth all the way down to 64k. The primary reason I purchased this switch was so that I could monitor and graph in/out traffic per port, and the snmp works well for that.

1 out of 5 eggsOne of the worst products I have ever owned

Pros: When I initially bought this switch, I had high hopes. It seemed like a dream to have all of the features it offers for the price point. It came with mounting brackets to put in a rack. I have a rack so it helps eliminate putting things on my desk. It was made by Linksys, I thought this was a supposed to be good thing!

It's quiet, this is the one pro.

Cons: 2.5 years later and I can't believe I put up with it this long. After about 6 months I started having weird network issues. My NAS started disconnecting hear and there. I would have to reboot the NAS, so I thought it was a NAS problem. My NIC cards on my PC would stop working occasionally. Internet traffic would stop suddenly. I would reboot the switch but the problem wouldn't go away, so I would reboot the cable modem and everything would work again. This led me to believe it wasn't a switch issue. These type of problems started happening more frequently and I would have to reboot devices. Rebooting the switch would never solve the problem, it was always solved by rebooting the device, which led me to believe the switch was working great. I thought I got really unlucky and bought a bunch of messed up electronics. The other day, 6 out of my 8 ports stopped working on the switch and then died. This is the best thing that ever happened to me. See conclusion below...

Other Thoughts: I started looking for a similarly priced switch or maybe even the same switch. Review after review complained of the same problems with this switch. Devices needing reboots, network degradation over time and finally ports stopped working. I replaced my switch with a D-Link dgs-3200-10 and I now have ZERO problems! Everything works without a hitch. I haven't even begun to mention what everyone else complains about. It's all there though. Horrible web interface, only works on IE, horribly laggy to make changes, confusing interface, etc... I would stay far away from the this device.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid

Pros: Cheap, managed, gigabit ethernet switch.

Cons: You get (less than) what you paid for.
"Webview" only works on windows and IE, command line interface very limited.
Mine has locked and been replaced twice (rma'd with linksys).

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend avoiding this product, although I can understand the temptation of the price & feature list, it just not a very good product and seems orphaned between the cheap linksys tiers and upper end cisco's with none of the advantages of either.

3 out of 5 eggsOk for the price, again.

Pros: Good price for the features.
This "business grade" 8 port gigabit switch runs a LOT cooler than the Linksys home grade 8 port gigabit switch.
SNMP on every port is kinda nice.

Cons: As stated by others, interface is a bit clunky and sluggish if you're used to true Cisco gear. Console/telnet access isn't worth the trouble.
Resetting admin account / password is definitely weird.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it's not that bad for the price.
I wanted a managed gigabit switch for home to mess around with without spending big bucks;
it works,
it doesn't give off a heat aura or need leaf blowers to keep cool,
and it has some nice features.

3 out of 5 eggslcli for non-IE management

Pros: Cisco features for Linksys money

Cons: get what you pay for

Other Thoughts: We have a couple 2016s. If you are used to working with IOS the 'lcli' interface offers many of the same commands. There is a small wiki here:

lcli.wikidot.com

that has some examples.

1 out of 5 eggsNot good

Pros: Quiet, nice size, looks good.

Cons: Cannot admin via firefox. Only IE running on a windows box. This is ridiculous. Also need periodic rebooting (2-3 months) due to a slow degradation of transfer speed. Also ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this product.
