Only have 1 ethernet port on your internet router or home plug? Need more? Then get this...
So the 4 port Ethernet switch for same price is out of stock on play, but noticed this one with 8 ports (bit bigger I think though).
Got it to go with these so can connect 2 PCs and PS3 to the great but only 1 port 200mbps homeplug; http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/640380/extra-value-200mbps-pass-through-po

200Mbps full duplex transmission
The GetNet GS-118P is a high speed fast Ethernet switch for home and small business network. The GS-118P not only complies with IEEE 802.3/802.3u 10/100Mbps Ethernet standard but also supports full duplex transmission. The full duplex feature can double the network throughput on every port. It is used for high speed server or switch-to-switch connections. The maximum throughput of every port can reach up to 200Mbps.
Supports wire-speed and flow control
The GS-118P built-in non-blocking and store-and-forward architecture enables your network with full-wire speed connections. It accommodates with flow control for full duplex mode and back pressure for half-duplex mode which ensures reliable data transfer and helps to prevent data lost. Use the GS-118P to create a high-speed network and benefit from it's ultimate performance and reliability.
Supports Auto-MDI/MDI-X and auto sensing
The GS-118P supports PnP (plug and play) installation and auto-MDI/MDI-X function. You can connect the GS-118P with computers or Ethernet devices without any configuration. You can also use either straight-through or cross-over Ethernet cable and combine 10Mbps or 100Mbps devices connected with the GS-118P. The switch will automatically detect the right cable and speed of your devices.
With new generation power saving mode, the GS-118P can reduce power consumption. It is the best solution for home and small business.
