My house is pre-wired for Ethernet and I had not yet tested it; I use wireless. It needed an 8-port switch so I recently ordered a Netgear switch but it turns out that the power adapter is such that it does not fit in the network box that is in the closet (first picture), and I would not be able to screw the cover on completely (second picture). I have 3 choices 1. Live with this switch. The gaps are good for breathing room. 2. Try some other switch with a more compact power adapter. [I would need recommendations.] 3. Just use wireless. Wired is so yesterday. Right now, I would like to do Option 2, it's always good to have a wired connection, I think. #1 is kind of ugly, but since it's hidden inside a closet, this is not a big deal [does it actually need breathing room?].
