Also $39 at Umart but shipping appears to be more expensive
Also on Amazon $39 Expired
oh cool, my son wanted a switch for birthday, this is cheap!
I remember when networking was new and exciting; he'll be happy it's managed; gets to fiddle with VLANs and break things in new exciting ways :)
$39 at Amazon also, free delivery for Prime members.
Can you link that? The cheapest I can find is $48
Nvm found it
Damn, not PoE powerable.
Just a FYI if you have a Google Nest wifi. You need a unmanaged switch.
Not really, switch is switch, you don't have to use extra features.
Can you explain the reason, please?
Because I went through cr4p getting my ports to work from the neat wifi using a managed switch. Ended up reading that the nest doesn't like managed Switches. Because it does all the managing itself, you're then introducing something trying to manage what the Nest is managing and it just becomes jumbled. Ended up getting a unmanaged switch and that was plug and play.
Why wouldn't you just tag all ports to VLAN0?
@MasterScythe: Couldn't be bothered. From the researching I did. It was just a lot easier and less headache by getting a unmanaged switch.
Even Google's own FAQ/help section says to get a unmanaged switch.
@he11bent: Yeah, if changing one setting is "too much bother" then a managed switch was never for you; you'll be happier without it.
Probably better to drop back to 1 IP range too, simplify it all for convenience over management.
@MasterScythe: It wasn't just one setting though. Anyways, don't care. I am happier in my unmanaged switch. Entire unit is hardwired with everything running through Ethernet. Just ran a speed test of 252Mbps on my 250 Aussie broadband plan.
@he11bent: How is vlan tagging more than 1 setting?
@MasterScythe: Lol alright I admit. I just couldn't be bothered with the one damn setting lol. Like I said. I'm happy with the current setup I have.
thanks for the info, since most of the mesh satellite have only like 2 ports i was thinking to get whatever the cheapest switch available, and this netgear one look solid and business grade, i wouldn't be thinking about it's a managed switch and will cause trouble to (at least some) router.
Say for anyone that bought this - how do you configure it? Does it have a web GUI and you need to set a management IP, then set vlan, etc?
I think you're getting confused between switching and routing.
@ashanrath: Possibly not - sometimes mesh systems will use different VLANs for guest and main network. (The TP-Link M5 does this but from memory only when a TP-link mesh unit is being used as the router, and all the units are connected via ethernet - so basically, when it isn't acting like a mesh).
Details for the M5 here: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/2317/
Something similar may apply to the Google mesh?
