Solved the PROBLEM
from Oakdale, NY, United States
I purchased the SE3005 after purchasing a WRT1900ACS router. My office originally had a WRT54G, and a Kinsgton 10/100 switch. After installing the router any systems connected to the switch could not access the internet, or networked printers. I thought it could be a compatibility issue between the new ACS router and the 10/100 switch. I installed the SE3005 and everything worked great. The switch was pure plug and play.
A proven product that works and is reliable
from Tampa Florida
A proven product that works and is reliable. Linksys product was very easy to set up on our network I would Morton say that it's a plug-and-play scenario no problems no issues on set up.

I demand the best
By Bill P
from Skokie, IL, United States
Firstly, I need to throw this disclaimer out there: I received this product as a free sample for my honest feedback. So honestly I never knew what the difference between a router and switch were - you could look up a great video by Cisco on YouTube for more on that, but essentially a WiFi router is a glorious hybrid of different ways for computers to talk to each-other. If you know what you want in terms of a private network this is creme DE la creme of personal/small business switches. My reasoning for four stars though is the abundance of competition who cut on performance but offer a lower bottom line. That all being said, you could probably roll a monster truck over this thing and it'll be fine; it has a real nice strong, durable body.
Good quality, reliable switch
from Atlanta, GA, United States
I received this switch from Linksys for feedback.. After refinishing my basement a couple of months ago, I had a problem with the location of my tv and media components. Dead zone. With a faint wifi signal the linksys 5-port switch saved me. Luckily I was able to run a cat 6 cable from my router upstairs down to the switch allowing me to connect my xbox, apple tv, and a/v receiver to the network. Setup was plug and play...and after a month of using I haven't experienced any problems with speed or performance. No lags with online gaming and Netflix content loads quickly with no buffering. This is my first switch so I don't have much to compare it to, so upon arrival I assumed I would be getting a small piece of plastic. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the metal construction. The device seems to run cool and works flawlessly. I would highly recommend.
Very nice sturdy feeling switch
from Texas, United States
This switch looks great, is weighted, so that it stays where you set it. It just so happens that I was out of ports on my router. One port on my router to this switch and now I have 4 more ports. I connected the power, ran a Ethernet cable from my router to the switch, then started connecting Ethernet ports on the switch. WOW, no setup at all, just plug it in and connect the Ethernet cables, so simple to set up, anybody could set it up in minutes. It has a very sturdy metal case. I have had it for a few weeks and it works great.
Very simple Switch
from Highland, CA, United States
This switch is very easy to install into your network. It is also very small, but works very well. If you need more that 5 ports then you need to look at the 8 port model.
SE3005: A great way to expand your network
By Lew Ross
from San Antonio, TX, United States
Fantastic device! The SE3005 Ethernet network switch works right out of box (it took me 2 minutes to unbox, connect to the network and have it running - Plug and Play at its best). You just plug it in, connect one end of an Ethernet cable to any of its 5 Gigabit ports and the other end to your router, network extender, or other hub. You're now ready to connect up to 4 more Ethernet devices onto your network. Great value for the money, small footprint, works well.

Simple Plug & Play set up
This switch was very easy to set up and only took minutes to do so. It came in handy as I play Xbox and my console is far away from my router a (Linksys WRT 1900 ACS) 100ft straight line. So I ran a 75' Cat 6 cable to my room a half way point, then I put this Switch SE 3005 in there to also power a PC tower. Finally from the Switch I ran a 50' Cat 6 cable to my Xbox. Now my Xbox has speed to keep up while online and not have drop outs as I would get with weak wi-fi. Just want to note that the WRT 1900acs wireless N power dose reach the room with my Xbox it's just not enough for online play, with my house being old with thick walls.
