  • Calling all nerds.......

    I urgently need a 8-port ethernet switch which must support VoIP.
    Does anyone have one I could borrow for a week or know of where I can buy one at a reasonable price?

    Thanks!

      Any of the little switches you can get for about $50 will handle VoIP no worries...

      make sure you get a Switch and not a Hub.

        I tried the Netgear FS108 switch and she no work!

        I think the switch needed needs to be a minimum of Layer 2?!?!

          All switching should be hapening at layer 2 anyway....

          A switch that low down the food chain shouldn't be raping or adding anything to the packets it should just be sending it to a different destination on your network....higher end switches (cisco etc) can tag / encapsulate packets for different reasons, but this shouldn't be happening on the netgear's....

          I don't see why it didn't work, thats pretty interesting..are you sure your configuration is correct?

          I have one of THESE and Nath and I have tested several VoIP conections using it...worked well.
