    Comments about NetGear® FS600 Series FS605NA 5-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch:

    This is my more accurate rating after testing the switch with one 100 and 10 speed-link device. Both work perfectly together, so network performance is 5star rated. However, the Port LEDs are always green, so you cannot refer to the link speeds. For the majority of network device shoppers, the speed status is irrelevant. Overall, great product 5star rated. The status is just my own personal techie interest.

      Comments about NetGear® FS600 Series FS605NA 5-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch:

      Althogh I plan to buy the Gigabit version of the related switch, 100M alone has great performance for internet (since most DSL & Cable modems have a max. LAN speed of 100M). The only thing I am waiting to try is running a 10M Speed device. I had a wi-fi router in this product family which had port status w/ multi-color for Ethernet speed. Green, as usual, is 100. And Amber is 10. The manual nor device label for THIS switch does not state this feature. I hope by testing this possibility, It will have this feature.
      Overall, this switch is great for performance, regardless of the status indicators.

      Did not buy mine from the Shack but I'm here looking for another switch since this one has failed after about one year. I finally isolated the problem to this one switch which gives all appearances that it's working but does not.
