I have found switches that run on 5v & 9v but have yet to find one that runs on 12v. I am trying to find a couple gig switches that I don't require a buck converter to change my RV's voltage from 12v to some other voltage. I bought one, I thought was 12v but it turned out to be 5 volt. Returning that one. Anyone know of one that runs on 12v volt? I need 8 ports, slightly less or more is ok. Space is at a premium on a Motorhome. Thanks,Bill

It worked as the picture showed. 12v and the center was positive like most connectors you can order! Worked so well, I just installed a second one in the rear of the RV. Now to find a 12v AP. My current AP's are 5v so they require a buck converter... one more thing to break.

Hey, those Netgear GS308 Gig switches just dropped $5 each on Amazon today to $18! Called them and they credited me $10, had to escalate to a supervisor, so made about a $1 a minute. -Bill

PS. Thanks to Slickdeals.net for emailing that to me this afternoon. I wonder how they knew.. spooky.
