Now you can have a powerful, high-speed network on a small scale. Netgear's GS108 Gigabit Ethernet Switch lets you build a system that provides a full, dedicated 1000, 100, or 10 Mbps connection so you can move very large files across your network instantly. The Netgear GS108 also lets you painlessly integrate 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices. The Netgear GS108 is a potent switch packed with ease-of-use features to simplify your workday experience. The Netgear's GS108 compact design fits neatly into small work spaces and, since it's self-cooling without a fan, it runs silently and unobtrusively.

Moves huge files fast! Features a high-speed, auto-switching 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet connection. And because Copper Gigabit Ethernet is a full duplex standard, you can get up to 2000 Mbps on each port.


Integrates 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices on the same network. Every port automatically senses the right speed and full/half duplex mode, while Auto Uplink technology automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables.


LEDs embedded in each of the 8 RJ-45 jacks make for easy monitoring. Space-saving dimensions are ideal for desktop or wall mounting in home and small office environments. And it runs quietly, self-cooling without an internal fan.


Strong, durable metal case securely protects the switch's working parts. The Netgear GS108 is made to last and Netgear backs it with a solid warranty
