Product Highlights
  • Total of 5 Speedy Gigabit Ethernet Ports
  • Designated Port for Important Traffic
  • Supports Full & Half Duplex Modes
  • Built-in Power-Saving

The 5-Port Power-Saving Gigabit Ethernet Switch from Asus is a networking tool that's an affordable and efficient solution for your home or small office network. This switch features five speedy Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting computers or other Ethernet-enabled devices on your LAN network. Of these ports, one, the "VIP" port, allows you to prioritize more important or latency-sensitive traffic for applications like VoIP or gaming. The switch also features a power-saving feature whereby a specific port will go into standby mode if a computer connected to that port is turned off. Because the switch is also fanless, it operates quietly in the background. If you need a Gigabit switch at a bargain of a price for your home or small office network, check out this one from Asus.

This switch features five speedy Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting your computer or other devices within your LAN
Once you connect a device up to the "VIP" port, that port will prioritize more important or latency-sensitive traffic for applications like VoIP or gaming
Designed to save power, this green network switch will automatically put specific ports in standby mode if a computer connected to that port is turned off. It will also reduce the amount of power transmitted when smaller cables are connected, providing only the necessary amount

        I have had a couple of the ASUS 8 port switches for several months now and they as well as the 5 port switch are working fine.

            Comments about ASUS 5-Port Power-Saving Gigabit Ethernet Switch:

            I use this to have two work stations that are also plug into VOIP phones during work and an other room has a computer and printer connect into the same room.

            I plug the main line into the first port and the rest follow. It may slow down speeds, but we don't use these computers for anything other than our internal CRM and email.

            Works great and its been a month or so of use.

              Comments about ASUS 5-Port Power-Saving Gigabit Ethernet Switch:

              I replaced three old Linksys switches with three Asus and noticed internal network performance improvements almost immediatedly. They are definitely plug and play, work as advertised, and are at a very nice price point.
