1. What type of device is the Linksys SE2500?

The SE2500 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch is a new plug and play switch model from Linksys.

2. What are the dimensions of the SE2500?

The SE2500 is approximately 4.5 inches (Length) X 6 inches (Width) X 1 inch (Height).

3. How many ports does the SE2500 have?

The Linksys SE2500 switch has five Ethernet ports.

4. What bandwidth speed rates are compatible with the SE2500?

The device supports 10, 100 and 1000 Mbps speeds.

5. Is the Linksys SE2500 a Gigabit switch?

Yes, the SE2500 is a Gigabit switch because it supports 1000 Mbps speed.

6. Is the SE2500 compatible with a crossover or a straight-through Ethernet cable?

The SE2500 is compatible with both straight-through and crossover cables because all ports support auto MDI/MDI-X cable detection.

7. Is the Linksys SE2500 a manageable switch?

No, the SE2500 is not a manageable switch.

8. How does the LED button on the back panel of the switch work?

The LED button gives you the option of powering ON/OFF the LED indicators on the back panel of the switch.

9. What do the LED lights on the ports indicate?

The yellow light flashes to indicate network activity over that port.  The green light powers ON when the local network port is connected to a 10/100/1000 Mbps port.

10. What are the intelligent features of the SE2500?

The SE2500 has a full-duplex IEEE 802.3x flow control and half-duplex backpressure with intelligent port-based congestion detection and broadcast rate control.  This device also employs the Green Power Saving feature which enables cable connect detection, sleep mode, and cable length detection.

11. What types of cables are compatible with the SE2500?

The SE2500 is compatible with CAT5, CAT5e and CAT6 Ethernet cables.

12. What devices can I connect to the SE2500 switch?

You can connect up to five Ethernet devices such as computers, storage, gaming devices, and printers.  You can also cascade other networking devices like a switch or router to further expand your network.

13. Can I use a switch to share Internet connection to all computers in the network?

No.  The switch is not capable of sharing Internet connection across the network.  However, it allows more computers to be connected to a local network.

NOTE:  Take note that only routers or modems with DHCP capabilities can allow sharing of Internet connection between computers.

14. What is the maximum throughput of the SE2500?

The maximum throughput that the SE2500 can accommodate is 1GB.

15. Can I mount the SE2500 to the wall?

No.
