The ProSafe 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch from Netgear is an 8-port Ethernet switch that can operate at speeds of up to 2000 Mbps in full-duplex mode.

Full Duplex Support
The switch not only supports standard 10/100/1000 Mbps devices in half-duplex mode, but is also capable of speeds of up to 2000 Mbps in full-duplex mode. This makes the switch an excellent option for use in networks where data transfer bandwidth is crucial.

          Bought the GS108 six years ago. It ran for six years nonstop. Last week it stopped working, shutting itself down within a few seconds after every attempt to reboot. Ordered an new one from B&H. Arrived quickly. Works great. System up and humming again. Hopefully this one will go at least six years.

            The 8-port switch was purchased so that I could print to either of two printers from any of four computers on my wired network. Setup was extremely easy, just plugged it into power and connected all the devices. Works great.
