I have a netgear prosage fs116e 16 port switch. It is connected to a data jack and goes to one port on a switch. I have 8 computers setup on it using all the same VLAN but copying or downloading anything to a workstation on the switch from the network is extremely slow.

This is only a 10/100 switch so it is not exactly fast. you should plug a laptop directly into the router and perform a speed test then perform the same test from the switch. www.speedtest.net is a useful site for this, if there is a lot of difference. then try a new cable. if the fault persists purchase a gigabite switch

Netgear rp614v4 as a switch


This router acts like a switch automatically, you can converse between ports on the same LAN connections without any setup.

They all need to have the same network setup, the same gateway address and DHCP setup.

If you are not accessing the internet that's all you need.

See manual http://downloads.netgear.com/pub/netgear/files/RP614v4_RM_12Jun08.pdf

How to connect netgear fs108 to cable modem


leeb..... switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem.... because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

How to link with 16 port switch with 8 port switch


Good question.
To link the new switch, take a short cable from the LAN port on the new Switch and connect it to one of the existing ports on the old or connected switch. it's just a daisychain.
Just keep in mind that the LAN connection on the Last switch must be connected to a PORT on the prior device on the LAN.

NetGear ProSafe FS116P 16 Port... Problem:


I had the same issue with the 8 port prosafe GS108.
open the case, look for the small (barel like shape) capacitors near the power connector.
Their top is mostly silver and should be FLAT, if it is uneven or slightly expanded as if ready to explode, that is the one that need replacement.
Best source is any old motherboard or if you prefer, buy a couple new ones.
6.3 Volt, 1000mF (micro Farad)

If you cannot determin which one is gone, just replace both or how many your switch has.
