NETGEAR

Most NETGEAR switches usually automatically direct all traffic to port 1, and some models have a switch which lets you enable an "uplink" port, or might automatically make a port an uplink port (although you might have to plug another NETGEAR switch into the port to make that happen). The manuals for switches may have info on this topic.

In addition, some switches, at least with later versions of switch software, support port mirroring, where a particular port can be configured to receive all traffic for network traffic capture purposes. This includes the following switches:
