Ping Problem
 
I had read a couple of reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere about how the GS105E responds to pings destined to other devices. I really liked the features this switch offers so I went ahead and purchased it. When I received it I connected it up and started pinging "fake" IP addresses and the switch didn't respond with ping replies. I was happy thinking I got a model that had been fixed. I then did a scan of IP addresses in my local subnet. As soon as I pinged the switch, it began to respond ...

Netgear GS105E - design flaws - do not purchase
 
This device is a managed switch. I purchased it for the port mirror capabilities for a work project. Since it is a managed switch it has a MAC and IP address so that you can configure it. The device has a serious design flaw as confirmed with NETGEAR tech support. They indicate a firmware patch will fix the problem. They've known about the problem for several months and still no patch. The problem is that when you ping any device on your LAN segment the GS105E will erroneously send a response. T...

Netgear's DailyWTF
 
True story: I bought this 5-port switch for its port-mirroring capabilities. After plugging it in, I discover that there's no way to configure it, aside from the proprietary POS Windows app that according to other reviews:* Doesn't work in Win7 64-bit.* Doesn't work on Apple MacOS.* The admin password is broadcasted (yes, UDP broadcast) in the clear.The device also responds to pings sent to ANY IP ADDRESS on the network.So look: I don't...

Management app will not install on Win7 64-bit
 
I purchased and am returing this product because the management application will not install on Win 7 64-bit (I believe the error was 1628). I tried the app version on the CD and the latest downloaded one, both will not install. There is no web interface, so configuration via this (windows only) app is required. I looked on the Netgear support website and didn't see any mention of this problem, and don't want to spend the next 2 hours debugging it, so am returning it.

Seems to work for gaming.
 
I bought this as a replacement for a GS105 UNMANAGED switch, witch did NOT recognize Qos (Quality of service). This switch works just fine, with an XBOX 360 gaming system. In fact it cured the LAG on my home network. I do not know about the ping problem, at least it does not seem to have any negative affect on my COD-MW2 games. I have always had good experiences with Netgear's ProSafe product line. Downloading the latest FIRMWARE update cures any ping problems and adds cable testing(excellent!).

Great for IPTV and LAN/Internet over 1 cable
 
I bought this product because I only have one network cable running to my upstairs office but still wanted to have IPTV and Internet access in that room.Setting up two separate VLANs with VLAN tagging over the shared UTP cable is a breeze with this device. It even offers QoS, in my case to prioritise TV traffic, in order to avoid any stutter caused by heavy traffic over the LAN network.The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because specific Windows only software is needed ...

Great Switch
 
This little switch has been working great for 3 months now. This switch plugs into the demarc device from our fiber Internet provider. Then we have 2 routers with static IP's configured that plug into the switch, so about 30 to 40 gigabytes of traffic go through this switch every day, with no problems so far. I got this one mainly because it says it provides mirroring, and I wanted to be able to see if certain traffic was hitting our routers for troubleshooting purposes/monitoring. I've had the ...

Did not perform on long cable run
 
This was unable to power the IR emitters on a camera at the end of a 250 foot run; ran fine in daylight but no lights at night. This was with two other outdoor cameras on 75 foot runs. Sent it back and put my older non gig POE switch in service. I don't know if the issue is power (15 watts SHOULD have done it) or the algorithm that determines power based on cable length.

Great little switch
 
We have bought about 50 of these to break out some offices which only have a few ports available in them. Good quality, havent really tested the features, as we use them like unmanaged switches.
