Compact and stylish design:
The stylish, compact metal housing of GS-108B fits any working environment. The affordable and reliable series comes with 8 ports to meet network expansion needs.

Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10/100 times faster:
The ZyXEL GS-108B 10/100/1000 Mbps desktop switch is designed for reliable high-performance networks with speeds 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet connections. With the non-blocking switching fabric in full-duplex mode, the maximum speed can reach up to 2000 Mbps per port, while the store-and-forward service brings low latency and error-free packet delivering.

Easy to connect multiple devices:
GS-108B is a 8-Port desktop switch with plug-and-play capability. With the Nway auto-negotiation function, the GS-108B connects network counterparts with highest possible network speed and activates duplex mode automatically. You can easily connect networked devices such as PCs, network storage and print servers to the network without any manual configuration.

Energy saving via link status and cable length detection:
GS-108B compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standard provides power-saving benefits without compromising performance. GS-108B automatically reduces power usage when it detects any shut down network device or inactive link. That is the power consumption of GS-108B adjusts according to the number of active network devices.

The GS-108B can also detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the Ethernet cable length, the less power it consumes.

    Features:
  • Compact and stylish design
  • Plug-and-play for easily connecting up to 8 network devices
  • Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet
  • Automatically adjust the power consumption by detecting the link status and cable length
  • Loop detection support for stable network connections

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Price. Compact. Has done the simple task it was designed to do flawlessly for over a year.

Cons: The activity lights bleed into each other, making them virtually indistinguishable.

Other Thoughts: This has been a phenomenal workhorse for what I paid--but I don't think it's worth more than what I paid, which is much less than the current list price.

1 out of 5 eggsSwitch doesn't do DLNA or ANY multicast

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Small, good throughput

Cons: Will not do DLNA or ANY multicast. Since this is listed as a "MEDIA" switch, it doesn't make any sense.

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to use one the ports on my router just to connect my Blu-Ray player. Dumb me thought that a switch (especially a so called "Media Switch" would pass ALL protocols. How foolish of me.

4 out of 5 eggscheck your serial number

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Replacement switch works

Cons: Original switch didn't work with Xbox 360

Other Thoughts: The GS-105S I bought from Newegg caused problems for my Xbox 360 acting as a Windows Media Center PC extender. When I went to the Zyxel I found this list of serial numbers that are known to have problems.
http://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/gs_105s.shtml?t=p
I emailed Zyxel support and they sent me a form to request and RMA. When I returned the completed form they sent me an RMA number and instructions. I sent them the switch by priority mail. The sent me a new switch which works correctly. If your switch has problems check to see if it is on the list.
I deducted one star because the first switch had to be replaced.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Price/Performance

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: The Switch features a simple, yet elegant design. It is plastic but feels quite sturdy and features very effective rubber feet. All and all this is a great Unmanaged Gigabit switch for the money.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is excellent, as always.

2 out of 5 eggsNot UPnP compatible

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Small footprint
Solid gigabit transfer speeds

Cons: Not UPnP compliant

Other Thoughts: If you're planning to integrate any UPnP components to your network, look elsewhere. Both my NAS and Homerun HD Prime has had nothing but trouble with these switches. It would never register the NAS/tuners on the network. I've seen warnings on other zyxel switches about this issue, but no such warnings appear on this product. Replaced them and haven't looked back. It gets 2 stars for being small and having a solid connection otherwise.

1 out of 5 eggsIt blocks XBOX360 MCE extender and Asus O!play

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: It works as an unmanaged switch for internet, pc to pc file copy, watch video from NAS through file explorer and etc. except see cons.

Cons: XBOX 360 extender failed to connect to MCE pc.
ASUS O!play failed to find UPNP server.
I swapped this switch back to my 5 years switch and everything works fine. I didn't change anything on MCE pc, router and etc. Swapping back and forth proven the switch is a piece of junk for my need.

Other Thoughts: Some time you have to trust the review.
I wasted a few hours of my life.

0 egg to the product since MCE extender and UPNP is a must for me.
5 eggs to Newegg customer service.

5 out of 5 eggsGood unit

This review is from: ZyXEL GS105S Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Small, simple, easy.

Cons: Why is it required that I enter cons?

Other Thoughts: I haven't done any bandwidth tests with these, but my use of them as a port duplicator has been seamless. Just plug and forget.
