Really simple. Plug the switch in then connect whatever you want.
Currently have printer, PS3 and Wii wired into it. All work perfectly.
No complaints at all. Oh and the lights don't bother me at all.
Would recemmend.

  Yep all good

Does what it says on the tin, and does it very well. No problems with it, personally I've not even noticed the blinking lights.

  Great piece of gear

Handy and solved my ethernet internet sharing problems. Got my PC, PS3 and Laptop hooked up to this. I use a 'standbye saver socket' so when I turn my equpment off the netgear switch will go off with it. Would recommend and good price too.

arrived this morning - my PS3, BT Vision, PC & Mac - works perfectly.
very easy to install. to avoid irritating blinking lights, make sure you place it far from your desktop, Mine is sitting beside the Hub. and my hub is approximately 5+ meters away from every computer in the house.

5 stars for this one! It was even simpler than i thought it would be to use. I plugged the Ethernet cable from the router in, a cable going to/from my pc and a cable going to/from my Xbox 360, turned on the power and that's it; up and running. Everything was connected in an instant.

Highly recommended!

  Excellent!

Excellent little Switch. I bought this as I needed wired ethernet access for 4 Laptops with only 1 network connection. Easy to use - just plug all the cables in and away you go.

In response to some questions I have seen from other reviewes for this product: This Switch does not replace a router - it will simply increase the number of connections available from a router.

  Question???

Hi does this plug into the back of your router and give you 4 more internet connections?
Or does this replace the router?
