Compact and stylish design:
The stylish, compact metal housing of GS-105B fits any working environment. The affordable and reliable series comes with 5 ports to meet network expansion needs.

Gigabit Ethernet boosts speed up to 10/100 times faster:
The ZyXEL GS-105B 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-105B is a 5-Port desktop switch with plug-and-play capability. With the Nway auto-negotiation function, the GS-105B 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-105B compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standard provides power-saving benefits without compromising performance. GS-105B automatically reduces power usage when it detects any shut down network device or inactive link. That is the power consumption of GS-105B adjusts according to the number of active network devices.

The GS-105B 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 5 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

5 out of 5 eggsJust right

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108S Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Good Price
Flexible configuration
Easy installation

Cons: Only thing that would make this product better would be to allow full configuration of the ports to the speed needed.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable, but cheap

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108S Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: I got it for $15, so that was pretty cheap for an 8-port switch. Seems to work well when it is working.

Cons: Approximately once a week, everything plugged into this switch (usually a PC and a PS3) loses its internet connection for a few minutes.

This never happened with my old Netgear router that I had been using as a switch.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, passes UPnP packets

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108S Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: Works great, seems to be built pretty well (despite being plastic and not metal). Small size, easily fits on a desk or shelf.

Does excellent on throughput. Don't know yet how the QoS ports or the Green technology works, but so far have no complaints. Despite being plugged into the 'low priority' ports (1-3) I'm still pulling 100% of my cable bandwidth (Charter 30Mbps) through this box, and using LAN Speed Test (Lite) I'm achieving tests on a 1GB file to a local share of 713Mbps upload and 508Mbps download using Cat5e.

Passes UPnP packets without any problems.

I like how everything plugs in the back (power supply and LAN ports) as opposed to some routers which have a side power supply socket or front mounted LAN ports - the only area I'd see front mounted ones as beneficial is for rack mounting and this is obviously not a rack mountable switch.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First ZyXEL product, very happy with it.

5 out of 5 eggsZyXEL GS108S

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108S Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: The regular price is respectable, but with the Newegg discount code, it was great! $15 US for 8 port gig switch? I bought 2! Not large in size. LED are not annoying. Lights up front, ports in the back; much better for desktop switches.

Cons: Front lights are just one color, not multi to indicate 10/100/1000.

Other Thoughts: No reason to not buy this switch. I replaced older 8 port Linksys and 5 port Netgear gig switches with two ZyXEL 8 port, the difference is rather noticeable. Of course, having in-kind gear probably has something to do with that as well. Still. I am more than pleased with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsTiny, works well

This review is from: ZyXEL GS108S Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Gigabit Ethernet Media Switch

Pros: This 8-port unit is tiny, smaller than the 5-port it replaces. Runs cool (I have it mounted vertically underneath a desk, had to provide my own screws but it has keyhole slots on the bottom). Not much documentation, particularly on QOS. The QOS diagram recommends putting a VOIP phone on a hi-pri port and an Internet connection on a low-pri port, but those are the two ports that will be connecting to each other, so shouldn't they both be hi-pri? Anyway, throughput on all ports seems fine, I haven't stressed it enough to make QOS matter. Energy-efficient. Switching fabric throughput and MAC table size specs are good for this price point.

Cons: Thin documentation. Only 128K memory buffer. Port lights only indicate link and activity, they are not color-coded for 10/100/1000 speed.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale. 2-year warranty seems average.
