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:

GS108T - see the "Monitor" page in
GSM712, GSM716T, GSM724T, GSM748T
GSM7212, GSM7224 & GSM7248 - see chapter 17"Port Mirroring",
GSM7324, GSM7328S, GSM7352S
FS726T/FS726TP - see the "Monitor" page in
FS750T, FS750T2
FS700TS series (728TS/752TS) - see "Configuring Port Mirroring" in
FSM726/FSM726S - see references to "Port Mirroring" in
FSM7326P, FSM7328S, FSM7352S, FSM7352PS

(The above list needs work, such as grouping switches into families, and more links to manuals.)
