Leviton 47611-GT4 10/100Mbps 4-Port Internet Gateway by Leviton


This little four port switch integrated right into my network.  I didn’t read any directions,  I plugged it in, put a cat5 cable in the WAN port, hooked up my laptop and bingo, it was there.   I must say that is so refreshing, considering the number of supposedly plug and play devices I have looked at lately that were anything but plug and play. 

The device comes with a rack mount bracket that can be removed.   I left it on  because it gave it enough height so I could situate it behind my KVM switch and still see the lights.   This is a nice little switch.
