This is a straight up dummy switch and I have the exact same one, both in 5 port and 8 port configs. All ports are Auto-Negotiation, Auto-MDI/MDIX ports, QoS is marketing fluff as it's an unmanaged switch, and you should be able to plug your router into port 1 and use a device on any of the other 4 ports without issue.

Sounds like his switch is busted then if your works fine.

get refund and replace or upgrade.

For sure, that's the only reason why I posted. Functionality is the same as any other crap dumb L2 you can get off the shelf so if it's dropping on port 5 it's either a bad cable, bad NIC, or more than likely bad switch.
