 I recently purchased a GS605 by netgear don't waste your time and money it's a POS. So if anyone know's of a good switch that's not a RFI generating hash box I sure would like to know of one.

You may find it is a computer plugged into the switch. I have a different Netgear switch, and all is quiet until my wife turns her computer on. I can unplug it from the switch, the RF goes away.

I had issues with the $20 plastic case types.
I spent a little more on a NetGear switch in a metal case and the RFI went away. They seem to like to mess up 20M. 14.2??? something. The Ethernet cables become antennas.
