And each of these very compact switches is housed in a sturdy metal case for years of dependable use.

When you want solid network performance for your growing business, plus the added benefit of quiet operation, the NETGEAR ProSAFE FS105, FS108, and FS116 are your best choices for quality, convenience, and smooth — running usability — all at very affordable prices.


  • At Your Service
    Five, eight, or sixteen ports provide LAN access for many users. Every port supports up to 200 Mbps in dedicated bandwidth and traffic is forwarded flawlessly with automatic flow control.
  • Compact
    The standards-based ProSafe FS108P senses and adjusts for network speed and cabling type automatically, for easy integration into your existing 10/100 Ethernet network. For PoE, the switch automatically detects 802.3af-compliant devices, and supplies power as needed. Front panel LEDs keep you informed of switch and PoE status.
  • Simple To Use
    Once you connect the hardware, your switch is operating! Auto negotiation takes care of the speed and duplex, while Auto Uplink takes care of the MDI/MDI-X connection.
  • Quiet
    No fan means no noise, which helps maintain a peaceful atmosphere in your busy office.
