Yes! I just found out that these are now End Of Life, due to their failure rate. Most people now recommend the f108 (similar, only 8 port instead of 5).
Turns out, I did not have a hardware issue at all...I had 2 instances of a DHCP Server running. Therefore my network was all jammed up. Solution: Uninstall one of the Servers, there should have never been more than one anyway.
The fact that I had two of these switches fail before my other network issues was purely conicedental. Either way I would never recommend one of these (Netgear f105).
Anyway, thanks for the input.
