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've owned this switch for more than a year and I am impressed with it. My home network is larger than what is considered to home network and I never had switching problem. FAST and RELIABLE!!!
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: I have lived with four ports for a long time. As I began to add components to my computer the need for more network ports grew. This Ethernet switch provided the expantion I needed. Printer, station for my laptop, internet service to the network, home security system including cameras. Worked perfect right out of the box. I have limited knowledge with switches, hubs, routers and the like.
