8 Port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet Switch

The Monoprice 8-port Fast Ethernet Switch is a professional networking switch that conforms to the IEEE802.3 10Base-T Ethernet and IEEE802.3u 100Base-TX Fast Ethernet standards. The 8-port design is perfect for use as a terminal switch for a small workgroup or as an intermediate switch to support a small workgroup with a throughput connection to additional switches or hubs.

This small footprint device includes eight RJ-45 LAN jacks on the back and eight corresponding green link/activity status LEDS on the front panel. The switch is powered by an included AC adapter and a green LED on the front panel indicates when power is applied.

Installation is as simple as plugging the unit into the power adapter and inserting Cat5/Cat5e STP or UTP cables into the ports on the back. The switch automatically detects the use of straight (MDI) or crossover (MDIX) cables and switches the connection to whichever is needed for the connected device. Therefore any of the eight ports can be connected to the upstream hub or router and the others connected to downstream PCs, hubs, or other switches.

This Monoprice switch has an integrated 1K MAC address table and supports MAC address auto-learning and auto-aging. It also supports NWAY auto-negotiation and automatically chooses the best connectivity mode.

With all speeds, connections, and functions automatically configured and supported, there is no manual configuration or setup required. Simply plug it in and start using it!

Excellent service, superior product

Pros: Small device, fast delivery, and simple "plug and play" functionality.

Cons: None, and I don't expect any from such an excellent product.

This is my first network switch and thus far it has performed as intended. I was a bit hesitant to go with Monoprice, simply because I had never heard of them until recently. However, I'm definitely a convert now.

Pros: Small, lightweight, inexpensive, works

Cons: It almost feels too light to be reliable, but I have been using these nonstop and so far no concerns.

Grab a few on sale so you have some spare switches lying around!
