Product Description

The ProSafe FS116P provides power and data from a single point, using Power over Ethernet (PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. The sixteen Fast Ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100 Mbps link and eight of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power. Advanced auto-sensing algorithm gives power only to 802.3af end devices, so no need to worry about damaging proprietary PoE or non-PoE equipment. In addition, it discontinues the power when PoE devices are disconnected. Easy and reliable, the ProSafe FS116P automatically determines PoE requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type using AutoUplink.

Not very often but once in 3 months or so it just decides to shutdown on it's own and needs a power restart.

Proceed with caution Oct. 6 2008
By Karl G. Fife - Published on

I suggest you think twice before you commit to this switch. While it's great that it's small and fanless, I've replaced the unit TWICE because it developed several 'dead' POE ports. The Ethernet function continues to work, but the POE function has failed on several ports. Instead of 8 POE and 8 regular ports, I now have 6 POE and 10 regular ports.

YES, the manufacturer has a LIFETIME warranty, but they also have a $20 FEE for advance-replacements. What's the alternative to paying this fee? You can't just shut down your network for 3 weeks while you wait for a replacement! According to support there is no 'Second Generation' version that fixes the problem so I expect that the re-replacement [sic] will also fail. Too bad.

UPDATE August 2009:

As I suspected, another failure. That's three failures in as many years. Today the power on ALL POE devices (IP phones) began cutting being in and out. The device is LIGHTLY loaded, far below the published power rating. I was tempted to solve the problem by smashing the device with a hammer, then setting it on fire, then throwing it out the window. I suspect that the device was just improperly designed. That is, I suspect it gets too hot, and needs to be cooled with a fan despite its fanless design.

UPDATE September 2009:

Netgear replaced it for us AGAIN, this time for free. We went ahead and paid the $20 again for advance replacement, which covered shipping both ways. However Netgear accidentally charged the credit card THREE times. After three phone calls at about 20 minutes each I finally got through to someone who was able to reverse two of the three charges. BONUS, as an act of good faith for the multiple device failures and billing error, Netgear went ahead and refunded us for ALL charges. In other words the advanced replacement ended up being completely free to us.

Naturally I'd have gladly paid the $20 not to be on the phone with them for 3x20 minutes, but I was pleased with Netgear's small gesture. Call me naive, but their small act of good faith makes me feel a little better about their intent (at least) to build reliable products. I'm slightly more hopeful that my situation is a statistical outlier.

UPDATE March 2012
Years later, our replacement continues to function properly. HOWEVER this may be due to the installation of a external fan. We placed a SILENT 120mm 12v DC "chassis/case fan" on the shelf between our router and Netgear PoE Switch. Air is drawn across one, and is blown past the other. The switch (and our router) now operate absolutely cool to the touch.
I can't say with confidence whether the fan is the reason the replacement switch has been so reliable over the past years. I CAN say with confidence that it's a GREAT idea to install a small silent 12v DC fan near ANY/ALL of your fanless devices, including switches, modems, WiFi devices, routers, Terminal Adapters etc. Even if the fan isn't directly responsible for the longevity in this specific case, there is a mountain of evidence showing that devices last longer when kept cool.

Reliable, running continuously for over a year now. May 13 2009
By Timothy Lam - Published on
I have been using this switch for over a year now and it has worked flawlessly without requiring any reboot (I attached it to a 500VA Tripp Lite UPS). I used it to power 4 Panasonic Poe IP cameras over CAT-6 Ethernet cables (2 of which are over 100-feet away) with zero drop outs. All four of these cameras are also outputting 640x480 30fps video simultaneously with no drop-out. Just plug in and go, setup can't be easier.

As an added bonus, it has vents on the left, right and back for ventilation to keep it cool without any fan noise.

Silent and functional Sept. 27 2007
By J. Fraser - Published on
The high point of this switch is that it's PoE but silent. Ours is powering 6 toshiba IP telephone handsets. It did have one glitch in the first week where it needed to be power cycled (indicators on the switch indicated a fault for all ports.) but since then, it's been on for two months without a problem.

The low: PoE is only available on the first 8 ports. and there is no management of this switch: no QoS, no remote monitoring, &c. I've heard the specs don't provide for full PoE wattage to each of the 8 ports either, but it's fine for 8 of our IP handsets.

Do not expect to drive more than one network camera with its POE. April 5 2009
By Curtis S. Mashburn - Published on
I purchased this to drive 3 Toshiba IK-WB15A network cameras. The cameras are supposed to be 802.3af compliant and are successfully driven by individual Linksys POE injectors, but could not be driven by this Netgear FS108PNA POE switch. This switch is supposed to be 802.3af compliant as well, providing up to 15.4 watts of power per POE port, except that it is supposed to have a maximum POE capability of 32 watts total. According to Toshiba the cameras pull approximately 10 watts. All of this adds up to this switch should drive 2 of these network cameras, but not 3. In reality, this switch will on drive one camera. When a second camera is attached it appears to drive it for a few moments, but then the second camera drops offline and will never power back up, even though the switch indicates that it is providing power on the second camera port, and the amber light indicating that the POE power available is below 5 watts never flashed. If a third camera is connected, it will never power on, and the amber light flashes as expected. I am an engineer and I spoke to both the Toshiba and linksys tech support engineers who claim that their products are 802.3af compliant and that the switch should drive two of the cameras. They just claim that the fault lies with the other manufacturers equipment. I tested all 3 cameras, and even purchased a second Linksys FS108PNA switch and obtained the same results. Between all of this testing and the fact that my cameras are successfully driven by individual linksys POE injectors, I can only conclude that the cameras actually draw more than 10 watts or that the Linksys POE switch simply does not provide enough POE power capability. Bottom line is do not purchase this product to drive a network camera unless you have some way to test your camera with this switch, or you can find someone who has already done so, or you only plan on driving one network camera and nothing else on this POE switch. I was not able to return my switches, as ANTONLINE the seller would not refund my money.

Works for me May 18 2013

I purchased one of these on August 6, 2011. It is powering 4 POE cameras. Working for better than 18 months with no issues. I have had no problems.

How can you complain that only the first 8 ports are equipped with POE when the description says:

NETGEAR Prosafe 16 Port 10/100 Desktop Switch with 8 Port Poe FS116P?

>>>>>>>> with 8 Port Poe <<<<<<<<


Update 29 November 2013:

Still working with 4 POE cameras. Never have had to reset. No issues.
