Released November, 2009
The Pros:Handles QoS well, multiple streams and gaming through consoles are all well managed. Installation is fast and easy for home use, just plug everything in and it works. Bandwidth is excellent, achieves true Gigabit connections consistently.
The Cons:Responds to pings for other IP addresses. No built-in web interface, needs software to be configured. Advertised cable diagnostic feature is unavailable until a future firmware update.
The Netgear ProSafe GS105E is an advanced 5-port Gigabit switch that builds from the GS105 by incorporating Quality of Service (QoS) tags for prioritizing network traffic, Virtual LAN (VLAN) support for network segmentation and security, and network traffic monitoring with a cable diagnostic test that can identify and locate problems in the cables.
