The NETGEAR 5-port Multi-Gigabit Unmanaged Switch, MS305, help businesses cost effectively expand their networks with multi-gig speeds. The MS305 Multi-Gigabit Ethernet switch comes with five (5) 2.5G ports in a metal case and can be placed on a desk or mounted on a wall with the included wall-mount kit. This switch is energy efficient, built to last, and rigorously tested to provide the reliability businesses need. 802.1p traffic prioritization and jumbo frame support allow for seamless integration with more sophisticated networks.


  • Simple set up with no software or configuration needed.
  • Flexible desktop or wall placement.
  • Easy monitoring through per port LEDs for port activity and speed.
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) support for maxium power savings.
  • 5 ports of multi-gig 1G/2.5G speeds to connect devices instantly and give them each exactly the speed they need: 1G or 2.5G automatically.
  • Non-blocking switching architecture for maximum throughput at wire speed.
  • Fanless, silent operation with desktop and wall mounting options.


Reliable Performance

Superior network performance at non-blocking rate delivers true Multi-Gig speed with no compromise

Energy Efficient

Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) standard, which reduces energy consumption when there is light traffic on an active port or when there is no link or no activity detected


No software to install. No configuration needed. Zero maintenance required

Silent Operation

The fanless design means zero added noise wherever its located, making it ideal for noise-sensitive environments.

Versatile Mounting Options

Install your switch on your desktop, or mount it to your wall with the hardware provided in the box.
