This newly-redesigned Linksys 5-Port 10/100 Switch can significantly increase your network traffics speed. A switch serves the same function as a hub in a network design -- tying your network equipment together. But unlike a simple-minded hub which divides the networks bandwidth among all the attached devices; a switch delivers full network speeds at each port. Installing this cost-effective 5-Port 10/100 Switch can potentially increase your network speed by five times. It is the perfect way of integrating 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet devices; too. All five ports are auto speed negotiating; and have automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover detection; so you dont have to worry about the cable type. Each port independently negotiates for best speed and half- or full-duplex mode; for up to 200Mbps of bandwidth per port.
