Configure the Switch

ProSAFE Web Managed (Plus) Switches are Plug-and-Play, so they can be used without any configuration. Just connect power, connect to your network and to your other devices, and you’re done. You can also configure and manage additional advanced features of the switch either by using your computer’s web browser or by installing the ProSAFE Plus Utility on your Windows-based computer.

For easiest access, we recommend that you cable the switch to a network with a router or DHCP server that assigns IP addresses, power on the switch, and then use a computer that is connected to the same network as the switch (on-network). However, it is also possible to configure the switch connected directly only to the computer that you are using to configure it, and not connected to the network (off-network). See the following sections for details about the different options for configuring your switch.

Access the Switch Using a Web Browser

You can access and configure the switch directly through its web-based management interface by entering the switch’s IP address in the address bar of a browser. When using web-browser setup, the simplest way to configure the switch is not connected to your network (off-network). You can also configure the switch with it connected to your network, router, or modem, (on-network) but you must be able to determine the IP address of the switch if your network uses DHCP.

Access a Switch That Is Off-Network

To use your web browser to configure a switch that is not connected to a network:

1.Record your computer’s TCP/IP configuration settings, and then configure the computer with a static IP address of 192.168.0.210 and 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask.

Note: If you are unsure how to do this, visit the support website at netgear.com/support and search for Static IP address on computer.

2.Plug the switch into a power outlet and then connect your computer to the switch using an Ethernet cable.

You can connect the Ethernet cable to any port on the switch.

3.Open a web browser, and enter http://192.168.0.239. This is the default address of the switch.

4.When prompted, enter the password. The default password is password.

5.Click the Login button.

You can now configure additional options for the switch in the web browser interface.

6.After you complete the configuration of the switch, reconfigure the computer that you used for this process to its original TCP/IP settings.

Manage Multicast Traffic With IGMP Snooping

Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping allows a switch to forward multicast traffic intelligently on the switch. Multicast IP traffic is traffic that is destined to a host group. Host groups are identified by class D IP addresses, which range from 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255. Based on the IGMP query and report messages, the switch forwards traffic only to the ports that request the multicast traffic. This feature prevents the switch from broadcasting the traffic to all ports and possibly affecting network performance.

The switch maintains a map that shows which links need which IP multicast streams. The switch forwards multicast traffic only to the links that requested them and cuts multicast traffic from links that do not contain a multicast listener. Essentially, IGMP snooping helps optimize multicast performance at Layer 2 and is especially useful for bandwidth-intensive IP multicast applications such as IPTV.

Use Browser-Based Access to Customize IGMP Snooping

By default, IGMP snooping is enabled. You can customize the settings for your network.

To customize IGMP snooping:

1.Connect your computer to the same network as the switch.

You can use a WiFi or wired network connection, or connect directly to a switch that is off-network using an Ethernet cable.

2.Launch a web browser.

3.In the address field of your web browser, enter the IP address of the switch.

If you do not know the IP address of the switch, see Access the Switch Using a Web Browser on page 7.

8.(Optional) Select the Validate IGMPv3 IP header Enable radio button.

Some network devices might not conform to the IGMPv3 standard. When the Validate IGMPv3 IP header option is enabled, IGMP messages are required to include TTL = 1, ToS Byte = 0xC0 (Internetwork Control), and the router alert IP option (9404) must be set. Otherwise, the packets are ignored.

9.(Optional) Select the Block Unknown MultiCast Address Enable radio button.

When this feature is enabled, multicast packets are forwarded only to the ports that are in the multicast group learned from IGMP snooping. All unknown multicast packets are dropped.

10.(Optional, for some models only) Select an option from the IGMP Snooping Static Router Port menu.

You can select a port to be the dedicated IGMP snooping static router port if no IGMP query exists in the network for the switch to discover the router port dynamically. After a port is selected as the static router port, all IGMP Join and Leave reports are forwarded to the port.

Set Up Static Link Aggregation Groups

Note: Static link aggregation (port trunking) is supported on models GS116E, JGS516PE, JGS524E, and JGS524PE.

Link aggregation groups (LAGs) allow you to combine multiple Ethernet links into a single logical link. Network devices treat the aggregation as if it were a single link, which increases fault tolerance and load sharing. The number of LAGs that the switch supports depends on the model. Configure LAG membership before you enable the LAG.

Note: The switch does not support IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation or Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) groups. The switch supports manual static LAGs only.

Use Browser-Based Access to Specify LAG Membership and Enable LAGs

You must set up LAG membership before you can enable LAGs.

To specify LAG membership and enable a LAG:

1.Connect your computer to the same network as the switch.

You can use a WiFi or wired network connection, or connect directly to a switch that is off-network using an Ethernet cable.

2.Launch a web browser.

3.In the address field of your web browser, enter the IP address of the switch.
