It's a switch, Jim 03/02/2011
This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Fast Ethernet Switch (FS105) - Lifetime Warranty
It's a 10/100 ethernet switch. Provide a supply of electricity, plug in the ethernet cables, and away it goes. I bought it knowing it would "just work" and I was not disappointed.
If you look at the picture, you can see there is a 4-port module with a 5th port added to the side. I haven't torn it apart or loaded tested it, but -- if you need 5 ports and all of them demand maximum bandwidth and minimal latency? Well, this looks a lot like a 4 port switch someone bolted a 5th port onto.
Kill-A-Watt says it draws 1.5 Watts/3.5VA.
I use this to provide ports to a room as part of my home network. It does an excellent job at that, and the metal body means I don't have to worry about smashing or crushing it.
