It's not worth it, I'm taking it back to exchange. If the second one
doesn't work, I'll return it for a refund.
I sent an email message to their support folks. Received a response
telling me that my network must be configured wrong. Also told me I
couldn't connect two PCs without a hub. I returned email telling that
my network was configured properly and asked them what the purpose of
the switch was if I still needed a hub. Whatever, lame email support.
I called their 800 # and the guy there said to take it back, sounds like
