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: We purchased this switch after our previous switch kept dropping users and the connection to our server. So far it is working great- we haven't had any connection issues and the set up required nothing special. We plugged it in and it was running immediately.
Excerpt: I needed to replace an old switch, which was also a Linksys switch. The new switch supports 10/100/1000, the old one did not . Unplugged the cables from the old switch, plugged them into the new switch, plugged in the power supply and everything worked. As a bonus, I saw a significant increase in network speed for the computers and printers hooked to the new switch.
