Plug in your Ethernet cables, plug in the switch. So simple a non-techie significant other could do it.
I was using a four port switch but with the addition of a networked TV, blueray player, apple tv... i was running out of available ports.
I ordered this and received the usual super fast shipping from Amazon. Packaging was excellent.
From the time I unpacked the switch to the time i was done (including moving the old 4 port switch over to the home theater area and plugging in the apple tv to stop using wireless) it took 5 minutes.
Yes there are cheaper switches out there, but since this switch is in a semi-visible area I wanted something that looked a little nicer. Having it come from Cisco is just an added bonus.
If you're looking for an 8 port switch, I would recommend the SE2800.
-No setup... just plug in the wires...
-Stylish (matches the 4200 series router).
-Runs hot... make sure you have adequate ventilation if installing in a cabinet
-Wish it would have some sort of spacers so that it attaches to the 4200 router while providing the proper ventilation
After spending 65 minutes on the phone, off-shore customer support and tech support were unable or unwilling to generate case number so that I could obtain RMA for warranty return. Sure, the switch is inexpensive, but a warranty that cannot be executed is as worthless as a defective switch.
I can access the internet with both computers at the same time. I have Time Warner Cable, with a strong signal. I am not sure, but I expect my cable company provides two IP addresses. My Yahoo research after buying this indicates a switch is not generally used (nor works) to access the internet with two computers and a router is needed, unless two IP addresses are provided by the internet provider (I can not confirm or deny this information - I found it on Yahoo) - Seems some good luck worked in my favor.
NOTE: I purchased mine at the local Walmart for the same price -(90 day return policy - no questions) - They have it on line too.
The switch seems to know that I have used port 5 from the modem and takes care of the rest, since it does not have a titled in port for the modem.
This switch also allows two different computer VPN sites for work to log on and operate - My old router was out-dated and the VPN on one computer would not link to my company site - but I could access the internet, without logging on the VPN. (Oddly the other computer would log on via VPN, but a different company - I was told it was a security issue with the old router) Now both computers will log on the two different company VPNs with the SE1500.
This just saved me about $500/year, since I do not need to pay for a second cable company modem.
I am so glad this is available. I did not want to go wireless.Read more ›
The most annoying aspect of setting up the switch was locating an AC socket that would accept the awkwardly shaped transformer. Other than that, setup time was predicated on how fast I could hook up the cables. Because of the ease-of-setup, low price, and fast delivery, I am going to rate the product a "5-star".
Order was serviced by Amazon and I have observed that "Amazon Prime" membership seems to get me priority shipping (2-day) and I must say I am very much appreciating the service.
