200Mbps = 100Mbps transmit + 100Mbps receive. You would expect full duplex on any modern switch. It would have to be quite old not to support it.

I got a refurb 802.11G Bellkin F5D7230 router for this price the other day, so I think paying the same for a 10/100 switch is madness! Did try to post the Belkin deal but got removed as its a "UK Sole Trader" offering it at that price.

Would this make alot of noise as I would need it for behind my TV?

Well, it's a reasonable price for a 5 port switch, and given that this will be used to add ports to a network that already has a router the products aren't really comparable.

I had a client that (stupidly) added a second router to his network (yes, he wanted more ports...) and brought the whole network down.

This unit is very quiet as the internal combustion engine is well muffled. :p

Sorry! No fan so it's silent.
#5
Good and cheap!! What more could you ask for? Heat added!
#6
Theres an 8-port for the same price with what appears to be a very similar spec (I only had a quick glance though). The dimensions also seem similar. Unless I'm missing something it seems a better deal. http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/12505605/GetNet-GS-118P-8-Port-10-100Mbps-Ethernet-Switch/Product.html

Had one of these for a few months. Does the job silently and efficiently. Nothing fancy, just the 5 ports on the back and an indicator light for each port - all you need for home use really.
#8
excuse the igronance

but I have one router connected to the modem

If I wanted another router in a different room to give extra ports for connecting laptop and ps3 , would I get this and connect the 2 routers with a splitter on the modem ???

Connect this to the router and the laptop and PS3 to this.

I have my Router connected to a GB switch, and then another GB switch connected to this, then my HD TV streamer connected to this. 1080P joy, no problem. :-D

I have Comtrend home plugs at home. If I have the router in one room, connected to a Plug and then connect this to one plugs in another room I can run 5 devices of it?

Thanks.
#12
although probably not the fastest switch going (i`m not talking about simple mbps) these are mint for small applications, they fit in your hand, absolutly ideal for concealing, so much so i was going to PoE one of these to an outside waterproof box.

got to be one of the smallest switchs on the market.

yes, the wall plugs simply act as point-to-point connection, so in effect are the same as a single network lead.

so yes.

router > wall plug > wall plug > switch > 4 extra ports (1 is lost to the wall plug)

your home (standard) routers are actually a router , wireless access point and a switch combined into one device.


and dont forget these are plug and play, no setting up needed, just plug everything in and give it a mo and it will work (at worst power everything down and reboot)

No mate. There are no cooling fans, so there will be no noise. :thumbsup:

I have a Virgin Modem with 1 Lan port on it and have to switch cables every time i want to use either the 360 or PC

Would this make it possable to use them both at the same time and split the connection or does this only switch between each one cutting the other off?

Thanks

No you need a router for this.

Using a switch would cause problems as two devices would be trying to use 1 IP off Virgin's network.

tiz correct, a router connects networks basically, i.e. the internet is a seperate network and your home and the devices you have are a different network, so to join then or bridge them you need a router, a switch will basically allow you to add more hosts (ports) to your network, very much like if you take a plug socket and add a 5 gang adapter, it takes that one plug socket and turns it into 5 (or 4 in our case).


get a cheap wireless home router and that will sort you out, everything in one then.


OR INFACT RING UP VIRGIN AND TELL THEM YOU WANT A FREE WIRELESS ROUTER FROM THEM, YOU SHOULD GET ONE FREE OF CHARGE OFF THEM!!!
#19
Ok thanks, i thought i needed a router but the antenna cable that goes into the back threw me off a bit

Ill give Virgin a ring and see what they say about a free one

I bought (£7.99 play.com) one of these at christmas to give me more ports behind my tv. They are 100% silent, it has not even needed a reboot (mine is on 24/7) yet and it worked out-of-the-box so to speak. No speed issues, xbox 360 connects without issue. I would have no problem recommending.
#21
I've been using one of these for the past 6 years solid (not this exact model but same make) and it's been no problem at all and looks almost identical to this one anyway.

Much appreciated, you've answered a question I've been meaning to ask for a long while.

Has been this price for a few months, I've asked about it before on some of the homeplug threads. Is this the only way to split a connection from a homeplug to a 360 and WDTV live? I was hoping to find a device that could share the ethernet connection that doesn't need a power supply, too many cables already behind my TV. Any ideas?:?

unfortunatly no, there is no `network switch or hub` that can work without a powersupply.

there is PoE but that still needs a power supply.

I'm going to use mine to find the Yeti, but I suppose you could use it to split your internet connection. :thumbsup:

Very good little switch, got one when I was setting up a homeplug setup after moving back to my parents, has my PC and 360 attached and never had any problems with it, worked straight from the off.

It is more of a bargain but some might prefer/require a smaller unit with 3 less ports over a slightly larger unit.

Both serve their purpose and are a good price.

Now.. can we see a gigE 5 port switch/hub @ these prices, please :p

i always think IT companies shouldnt allowed to get away with this...thats like saying a car can do 120mph forwards and 40mph in reverse so that car can do 160mph

Anyone know if you can get something like this but USB powered???

TIA. :whistling:

yes, google it "usb powered switch"
#37
I bought one the other day before I saw this and so far so good, it is very small - overall if you need something like this, then save a few pounds and buy this one.
#38
so this is now out of stock.

Is this as good?

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/12505605/GetNet-GS-118P-8-Port-10-100Mbps-Ethernet-Switch/Product.html

I want it for the ebuyer home plugs 200mb on the other thread.
