About this deal

I suspect that it costs Netgear less to use quality components in a switch that they put a lifetime warranty on than to save a few cents up front simply to have to pay to process the RMA a few years down the road, so it’s obvious why Netgear would make this choice, but what it means to you is that that the new GS108 switch (in theory) should be slightly more reliable than both Netgear’s own GS308 and TP-Link’s TL-SG108.

The IGMP dynamic router port does not timeout exactly at 300 seconds; it varies from 300 to 600 seconds. Define "PoE device" - make, model, firmware, link to product, link to documentation, data sheet, ...

The time-out period of an IGMP host is not exactly 260 seconds but could be anywhere between 260 and 520 seconds. Fixes the issue where the settings for the 802.1Q VLAN Advanced function (in the device UI, select VLAN > 802.1Q > Advanced) are missing in the German version. Any ideas on the reset switch not appearing to function? Is there another way to trigger the reset? To my knowledge, the Smart Managed Plus models don't have controls for port enable/disable or PoE enable/disable. V2.06.14 has 3 firmware images. Each supports a different language for the WEB GUI: English, German, and Japanese.

V2.06.10 has 3 firmware images. Each supports a different language for the WEB GUI: English, German, and Japanese. V2.06.16 has 3 firmware images. Each supports a different language for the WEB GUI: English, German, and Japanese. The supported language is identified by the suffix of image filename: Firmware version 2.06.24 includes three firmware images. Each image supports a different language for the device UI: English, German, or Japanese. The supported language is identified by the suffix of the image filename: The Netgear GS108 and GS308 as well as the TP-Link switch simply include the switch itself, power supply, and documentation. While no ethernet cables are included, keep in mind that most people installing a switch already have cables or prefer to make their own. Including one would be handy, though, because too many ethernet cables is never a bad thing. Will this work as a "dumb" switch?I don't consider a "yes" answer as a solution, but only as an indication of whether I can use it in this capacity. I bought these particular switches for VLAN and POE functionality. I have them tied to a Cisco 4948, and I want the VLANs.The time-out period of a dynamic IGMP router port is not exactly 300 seconds but could be anywhere between 300 and 600 seconds. Added a control option to disable or enable file transfer via TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol), under System > Management > Switch Managed Mode). Default is Disable. Random (non-PoE) Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet devices (for examplea LAN port on your router) should be able to establish a link on the PoE ports (Left Speed & Activity port LED) as well as on the non-PoE ports (Right Status Port LED) as per the NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switch with 4-Port PoE GS108PEv3 Installation Gui... . While both Netgear switches use 12V power supplies @ 0.5A, the TP-Link is specced at 9V 0.6A. Personally I prefer the standard 12V setup since it’s easier to find a replacement adapter should the original one fail, and you don’t have to worry about an end user accidentally plugging in a 12V power supply into a 9V switch, which could damage it. If you do the math, 12V x 0.5A = 6W, and 9V x0.6A = 5.4W, so all three switches should be similar in power usage. We shall see later if this really is the case. If you can ping the switch, you may need to upgrade the firmware on the switch. For this you will need to use the ProSAFE Plus Utility on a Windows-based PC. See Method 2 here.

Netgear ProSAFE plus Configuration Utility - permitting the microcontroller is still partially alive, and the NDSP protocol access wasn't disabled. IGMP dynamic router port does not timeout exactly at 300 seconds. It could be anywhere from 300 to 600 seconds. From analyzing the advertised features, our own performance benchmarks, and taking each switch apart to see how well they are built and the quality of components used, we’ve come to the following conclusions.Something to note is that the Netgear GS308 already had the little rubber feet attached from the factory, the Netgear GS108 and TP-Link TL-SG108 don’t have them pre-installed – they come extra in a little baggy. If you’re a really, really lazy person you should probably buy the GS308. I opened up the GS108 expecting to see generic electrolytic capacitors like older versions of this switch I’ve opened up in the past, and the other two switches in this roundup. Instead, there weren’t any – at all! Let me reiterate that for you – the most likely component to fail in these switches simply isn’t present – which means that the switch should pretty much last forever.

I just replaced this switch with another of the same., even though I had a hard time justifying doing so with what I am experiencing. Several weeks ago,I noticed, via my network monitoring software, that the web interface on one of my GS108PEv3 switches had dropped offline. However, the switch appeared to functioning normally otherwise. Ipower-cycled, and no dice. I decided to factory reset. You can try to reset the switch to factory default settings by holding the Factory Reset button on the switch for 10 seconds. Note that this will reset the configuration of the switch to default settings. Once done, re-try the steps above. With a metal chassis and metal ports, the switch feels sturdy, though the glossy finish doesn’t feel as professional as either of the Netgear switches.

If you cannot ping the switch, your computer may be configured in a different IP network to the switch. Try setting your computer with a static IP in the same IP network as the switch. A configuration that is obtained from the Plus Utility cannot be used by device UI, and the other way around.
