yes

The TL-SG1005D/TL-SG1008D switch is very easy to manage
since it is plug-and-play and no configuration is needed. In
addition, the Auto-MDI/MDIX cable detection on all ports
eliminates the demand of crossover cable or Uplink port. Each
port can be used as general ports or Uplink ports, and any port
can be simply plugged into a server, a hub, a router, a switch or
a PC, using the straight cable or crossover cable.

Yes, I have 3 of these [linked] in the house going to different rooms and they work fab!

Thanks for posting this - very tempted; but in the end decided to go for the £5.79 10/100 switch...
#9
Thanks to OP, ordered two, heat added!
#10
I think I ask the same question each time these appear. Can I use this to pick up my wi-fi signal and connect things via cable elsewhere?
#11
Love these works brilliant
#12
Cannot seem to fault these at all despite the cheap price. Syncs up instantly and can max out speeds of gigabit specs (around 120MB/sec) between two PCs through the switch without a problem.
#13
Excellent price.

No. Look for a Wireless Ethernet bridge instead.

No. This is for connecting multiple cabled network devices together, it's not wireless.
#17
I've currently have two of these running at my house also ...

Haven't had to look at them since I wired them up .. Work Brilliantly!
#18
Just ordered the 8 port version for 20quid delivered on 7dayshop :)
#19
Does Daisy Chaining just mean sticking a cable from one to the other? And all your devices plugged into the other ports still work?

I have a 5 port upstairs and a 5 port downstairs (both TP-Link) and might need a couple of extra ports soon.
#20
Yup, connect with a cable and you turn 2 5 ports into an 8 port :)

Yes you can do that, the bandwidth would be shared, but not maxed out constantly from both devices. Won't be a problem.

No it cant pick up a wireless signal, it routes traffic around your network. you need to run an ethernet cable from your router to this then cables from this to any device you want, including another one of these. EG. router to switch...then switch to PS3, XBOX360, Internet TV, then a cable from this upstairs into another one of these switches and ethernetcable from the upstairs switch to any device upstairs.

Thanks (it was late I was quite tired ) I'm just debating whether to buy 2 for spares in case either of my netgear gs108s go off. Cracking price considering I paid £136 each for my gs108 3-4-5 years ago


How are you finding it on their page though, through google, I'm trying to use quidco, I've searched on product code, no go, from drop downs etc


Actually it don't matter about quidco it's only 1% for 7dayshop not worth the hassle. I'll check topcashback though just to be sure. I'm Never again clicking thru here 4 sure.

This should speed up file transfers to my shiny new popcorn hour quite nicely, hot!
#39
Hot! I've gone for this, rather than the Play deal (I really rate Amazon)
#40
I wouldn't recommend daisy chaining though

See if you have a router which can use DD-WRT firmware. You can use client mode to use wi-fi as your WAN.

I use the same thing for my VoIP phone. Pings about 1-3ms from wired client on main router which aint bad.
