Summary: Original wireless router on the ground floor, with a laptop in a room on the second floor which was only showing two bars and the connection kept dropping. Bought this and put it in a room on the first floor, now the laptop shows five bars (needless to say the connection doesn't drop).
Excerpt: I purchased two of these switches and used them at two different locations. The switches have functioned perfectly and without any difficulties. These switches were a "good buy" and I am glad that I made this purchase.
Excerpt: This is truly a plug and play switch. However, instead of calling it an 8-Port, I think it should be called a 7-Port as one of the ports has to be used for the incoming Ethernet so you actually have 7 ports available. But this switch has worked flawlessly on all 7 available ports.
