Usually of the "Big Brand" stable, I was looking for a Netgear / D-Link switch when I bought my NAS for downstairs, but the costs associated with them were quite hefty.

Bought this after reading some of the feedback on Amazon about 2 months ago and i have not regretted it...in fact i have recommended this to a few friends/colleagues.

It does what a switch does with zero config. just connected all the network cables and everything worked. I have a O2 / BE Thompson Router connected to a Netgear Gigabit switch which is then connected to this TP-Link Gigabit switch with no issues. Haven't had to reboot / mess around with any of the cables since it was plugged in the first time.

Cheers OP. Bought one. Just been trying to transfer files at 100BASE-TX recently and it's slooooowwww. Now to get some nice CAT 6 cables (CAT 5e would do though). Ooh, I've got one sitting around!

tempting, would mean running only 1 cable to my TV area, since now I have a networkable TV, Blu-Ray player, PS3 and HTPC.

Yes thats true, but nothing stops a "big brand" being "budget"...think Primark, Iceland, Skoda...all considered "budget" but still "big brand"

at the risk of getting flamed - pretty sure you don't need Gigabit for media streaming etc so the following would be an even cheaper option for you could be..

Or get the one mentioned above from amazon instead of play for £5 odd as I did last week. It came with a euro plug so amazon knocked another £1 off the price.

flames coming .......

You would be MAD to buy a 100Mb switch instead of this for a few pounds more and future proof your network. If you live alone and only use 1 device at a time then a 100Mb switch will do you. Have kids and a wife who all have the ability to stream videos? then you'll need a Gig switch.

Envizage3rd party seller did have the 8 port 10 minutes ago for £24.90 delivered and was going to order but then put their price up a minute ago to £26.35 so th cgft

Dumb question but if I currently have a cable modem connected to a wifi router (with 4 ports), does this just connect to one of the existing ports, to give me 4 addition ports?

Yes

Good price. Still frustrates me that most ADSL routers etc. only come with 100Mbps ports onboard, when this clearly shows that it would got them **** all to do gig ports instead. I've got the TP-Link 8 port gigabit switch and it's been great.

1. it wont increase your internet speeds on your PC/Wii or Laptop
2. it will increase file transfer speeds between your ps3 and pc (if pc has Gb lan)

apart from that it wont do anything else apart from add more Ethernet ports to your home network.
#23
100mg is totally fine for most people who streams and play games even transferring files. Unless you have gigs of files to move around regularly 100mg is ok so not worth upgrading. If you need a switching hub then for a few pounds more i would get the gigabit over the 100mg.

Switching hubs are compatible with most (if not all ADSL/cable routers), they generally don't need configuring.

Yes but they're big brand names which is what the OP was saying TP Link is fairly unknown (no bad thing)

+ Another benefit of using a switch instead of a hub (usually on routers) will cut down on network traffic as they don't broadcast every packet, not a big deal on home networks but it is an added benefit.
--

Also, I understand why people slate netgear for some of their poorer "rangemax" products over the last few years, but some of their hardware (especially the business end is solid) I can't think of a better budget quality home router than the DG834G..

A hub and a switch are 2 different things, there is no such thing as a switching hub. I'll be surprised if you can still buy a hub these days.

Does anyone know if this supports jumbo frames (and what size?)

Yup they do, only 4k, however I get sustained 65MB/s on large files when writing to my FreeNAS box through one of these boxes (which has gigabit, but no jumbo frame support).

I have seen files transfers alot higher than this through the TP link when writing between 2 powerful Windows 7 machines running fast disks (2TB WD20EARS drives)

For the money these things are very hard to beat, they don't seem too picky about cabling either, I get 1GBPS over short runs of cheapo CAT5, the longer runs need better cables, but that's not a fault of the TP link.

might be worth looking at homeplugs then you wont have any trailling cables......i use powerline AV netgear ones, run at 130-197mpbs....low end close to wireless N, latter better than wireless n (ignore the 300mpbs marketing bull claims for wireless n)

agreed, in reality the switch has superceded the hub as they do similar things but the switch is more intelligent, the main reason for having similar items was originally speed (switches were usually a little faster) and cost (switches used to be very expensive, not so now)....both issues are neglible now

I've got a Tp link 8 port gigabit switch - had it for years, and its been very good.

(We were using it at a LAN, and for some strange reason C&C3 wouldn't work in network games with a netgear switch, but worked fine with this Tp-link one.) Other network games worked with both switches...

Anyway - good switch, good price.

This is a switch for allowing multiple ethernet/network cables into one box for connectivity with each other at gigabit speed, If you need more sockets on the back of your e.g router, need some in another location in your house or fancy setting up a high speed gigabit network yes, If your happy with the wireless on your macbook and most likely laptop and don't need anymore sockets to plug network cables in or any of at stuff i mentioned prob not.
