For all the tech minded people on here. A couple of quick questions..
So i have rotuer in the back room and a ethernet cable connecting to it which leads to the front room.
Untill now this was connected to my xbox. But i have now purchased a htpc and would also like a wired conntection for this. After some reading, i think i need to purchase an ethernet switch. (correct me if im wrong)
So my questions.. How hard will it be to set one up ? Is it as simple as just connecting my devices or is config needed.
How do these switches manage traffic ?
I have seen some 5 port switches for 50quid, and some for even 5 or 6quid. Is there any reason for the huge range of prices.
Thanks in advance guys.
