heat added, could do with another one, thanks OP

can these be used to replace a sky hub ?

it's been mentioned a few times on some NAS threads but the general response seems to be "buy a gigabit switch" without actually offering any tangible examples

It wouldn't replace your Sky router as you need that to provide your internet connection (or another Router)
This device would plug into one of the Ethernet ports on your Sky Router providing extra Ethernet ports on your network at Gigabit speeds (1000Mb)
You can then connect other devices to the switch and they would communicate with each other on your internal network at Gigabit speeds rather than using the 100Mb ethernet ports your Sky Router likely has.

Duuurr @ me :) That's one of those questions you realise is rather silly about 5 minutes later :D:D

Nice. Thanks for that explanation. At this price, i may well take a punt and see if it improves the transfer speeds to and from my NAS drive :)

If you keep all the wired devices plugged into the Gigabit switch rather than through the Sky Router you will definitely see an improvement..however if your NAS is using software RAID to write data across disks you may find that this is causing slow write speeds that would negate the increased network bandwidth...
also worth checking which model Sky router you have as it may already have gigabit Ethernet ports...(some models do, some don't)

I only have a single bay NAS drive, so I can't imagine it would be using Software RAID, but i'll definitely check.

As far as the router goes, it's the standard sky hub model sr101.

Definitely worth getting a gigabit switch then. Single bay NAS so no RAID and that Sky router only has 100Mb ethernet ports.

RAID is a method of using multiple disks, writing data across them to provide some redundancy keeping your data available if a drive should fail. If you have a single bay NAS you don't have RAID ;-)

oh i'm familiar with the multiple disk aspect of RAID, but i wasn't sure about the software side of things. That's why i bought a 2TB passport drive to back it all up :)

Are these the older (better) metal ones, or the newer plastic ones?

This may have come at the right time for me, I have a virgin router and plugged into that is my HP microserver, I then have an Ethernet cable running from the router to my acer revo that is behind my TV, my router is about 4 mtrs away from my TV and i can not move the router, my tv is currently set up over wifi and at Christmas my son is getting a ps4.

Yesterday I put a standard switch behind my tv as I want the tv acer revo and ps4 hard-wired, When i started to play a move to the tv from the revo (xbmc) the movie started to buffer a bit, it never used to when the revo was plugged in directly to the router but now it is plugged in via the switch it buffers.

Would this gigabit switch help the issue?

To add the current switch is 10/100 and my connection speed is

That looks like the bandwidth of your internet connection (WAN) whereas the bandwidth between your internal devices (LAN) is what you're asking about.

It's not easy to say whether the new switch is implicated as other factors might have been in effect. This is only £8 though...

Thanks for the response, the current switch is a netgear 10/100 8 port, as I say stuff never used to buffer when my xbmc box was directly plugged into the router but now it runs through the switch it tends to buffer a bit.

Do ebuyer actually take 5 days to deliver?

a 100Mbps switch can move data at about 12.50 MBps. This will cover most usage scenarios until you get to 1080p high quality DTS streams. You'll definitely have issues if you try and play an uncompressed blue ray over it.

Virgins (up to) 152Mbps service can move about 20MBps if you actually get the full 152Mbps.

I'm pretty sure if you get a fibre switch the router will come with gigabit ports anyway so you'll be covered on that front.

On a home network all connection points need to be gigabit to take advantage of the full speed, so your nas or microserver need to be gigabit as does your HTPC and your switch.

so for streaming films from the internet you'll only see the difference if you're on fibre.

All of this is just my opinion of course. I believe it's educated but YMMV.
#25
the whole question is moot though when gigabit switches are so cheap there is no reason to buy a 100Mb switch.

£9.99 now, can we adjust the price rather than expire this?

152 * 1024 = 155648

155648 / 8 = 19456 so 19.5MB/s (rounded up)

That's another way of saying I agree with you it's around 20MB/s.

Real world bandwidth with overhead means you'll get less than that. I wouldn't sniff at it though, even though we're woefully behind the infrastructure of the far east with their 1Gb/s+ connections.

Doh! I've been watching for this model to drop again and now missed it!

£7.98 is a good deal but £9.99 isn't much less than the 8 port model sells for when on offer.

It's nice when people occasionally agree huh :-). My internet connection is 12.73 Mbps (1.6MBps) going in to a catalyst 3560 so my bottleneck is pretty obvious :-).
