Do u need gigabit for average home use and even basic office use?
gigabit costs little more than 100Mbps. Even if you are a light user, I'd go straight to gigabit.

Is this just an extensions of the ethernet ports on the back of your router modem?
No, this is a switch, which means there is a little intelligence involved and it's not quite an extension (a closer analogy would be a hub) ...
​Thanks for replying, what are the benefits of this then?
You can use it as an extension of your routers ports if you like. That's all I'm using it for.

I have this. Doesn't work very well with thick old walls. Currently looking for a replacement.
there are some tp-link ones at about £39.49 last time I checked couple days ago on Amazon. I use the cheap D-Linj 500mbps ones which are about £14.99 per pair, and have no WiFi. No complaints.

There are articles that compare various adapters. Google's your friend.
Thank you..sounds very interesting idea. Any recommendations?

Is this much better than the EX 2700 for £14.99? The signal is not great in my house (Concrete walls from 1920). Happy to go for the expensive option if it offers better signal


you can probably get a ​powetline adaptor with wifi for that money (I guess about £5 more for a pair one of them with wifi). I would go for that if the wiring in the house is good enough for 500mbps

For a home router you don't need "3200". Just go with a 1750-1900. 3200 router just have two 5ghz bands. Useless for home networks in my opinion.

the thin piece of cat5e will win for speed, but if its thin its probably flat, and if its flat, its probably not twisted, and if its not twisted, you might experience slow performance due to interference, especially in long runs.
I can't tell if that was meant to be funny.
Because "Wire will win, but if... and if and if and if.... then it's crap" was hilarious.
Or perhaps my mind hasn't survived to the weekend.......

Expired, now back to £15.60
In the last 6 months alone the 8 port metal switch has been £13.99 three times and also the TP Link TL-SG108 has also been below £14 twice. Either one of those units is typically on offer at least once in a month, I'd wager good odds one will be this month at some point.

They aren't available for that price now granted but they are on offer so frequently for just £1 more than this that I'd suggest waiting unless you have no use for more than 5 ports.

Best price I can see. What an odd voting system today. If you hid amazon from the title you would have got the heat it deserves!
Bought this exact model for £14.99 last month. Sorted out all my issues with watching PLEX and having generally poor signal in my bedrooms. Watching HD material streamed from my server used to stutter every few minutes, but no longer thanks to this. Works perfect, and very easy to set up.
Bought one of these a couple of months back. Ended up sending it back as it actually made the wireless setup far more complicated and did not improve anything.

Will this work with virgin and does it have USB for network storage
true, but I'd much rather have the Netherlands than home hub/sky/virgin/a n other default modem. performance alone along with the reliable WiFi signal it gives. no doubt the 6300 would be good, I just see the extra for 6400 as a better value option
That's not just a router, it is a ADSL2+ Modem Router. And price is not great for what it is either.
i paid 65 for the D6400 in store currys (sheer luck) and as with #1 i'd spend the extra for it:

thanks for the advice on TP LINK
The problem is folk try to push a weak signal through these units and then wonder why it's crap, you have to put it in a good signal point then it will boost it again

Used right they work a treat
It's a wifi extender. it's not a television or 6 months supply of Doritos.

If you want to extend your existing wifi's range then buy one.

If instead you want to do a completely different task then why are you even looking at this post?

Thanks. I ideally want to put one by the router, and then the other 3 at 3 different locations around the house, but if they only work in matched pairs then that won't work. If the 3 "slaves" can pair to the 1 "master", then that would work a treat, otherwise its a no go...!
You can use them as you describe you want. They all sit on the same network and share the bandwidth.
thanks - the walls in my house appear to be lead lined and wifi signal does not travel well.... as well as the Mrs not appreciating CAT 5 cabling running round the house, this might be the best solution.
GwanGy
I am not doubting your veracity but these powerlines ALL over-exaggerate the achievable speeds. You may be getting a 1gb burst, but what are you copying from/to ? what size is your copy? what sort of files?reviewed here

It's a shame the reviewer doesn't know the difference between writing Mb and MB. 326MB/s (2608Mb/s) is impossible with a power line kit only rated to achieve 1200Mb/s of theoretical speed.

Edit: I commented on the article and they updated it.

Can you plug 4 of these (2 sets of 2) into the same mains ring and use them all at simultaneously? Or are they a "matched pair" as it were?

You need one connected to your router - that sends the signal over the house wiring circuit - which is then picked up at any other socket (through a second - paired adapter) to connect an item by cable.

If you want 4 near the router a switch would be much cheaper. Similarly - use a switch at the receiving end via the adapter.

I don't understand why people use these when we all get a Router from Internet providers ?

I don't understand why people make comments like this.

It's the same reason we have higher tiered/priced products in every category.

Some features a high end router provides over the bog standard ISP one:

Dual/Tri band
Wireless AC
Port forwarding
QoS
Additional coverage
Guest network
Gigabit ports

and those are the only ones I use/come to mind/know of.
What router do you have? I am looking to replace my HH5.
My HH disconnected my BT Infinity connection nearly every other day. I switched to an Asus and it is rock solid going months and months without disconnecting. I can also plug a USB drive into it and use it as a network drive which is nice. Upgrading your router can be just about adding features but it can also improve reliability and range too.

Because the ones Virgin send out are only good for landfill.
Seriously though, for me it's to get faster file transfers across my wireless network and to improve security.
Maybe mine is special, but I've found my Virgin Superhub 2 gives me better range than the two high end routers I was using when I only had a cable modem, turning the router to a modem only and using mine actually reduced performance.
The big downside is the limited port forwarding, DHCP reservations and all that sort of thing, which can be a pain.
mike

My Superhub 2 is in modem mode. I'm sure it's suitable for some, but I would end up rebooting mine once every couple of days or so in router mode. 5ghz file transfer on the Superhub 2 I would say is on the low end.


To be honest it sounds like your Superhub 2 might be faulty, I'm glad yours works well in modem mode. I've had no problems in either on mine and I prefer to use an external router not only because of the extended wifi range, but the range of features extra features no ISP modem will ever offer like VPN in & out, FTP, printer, auto downloading and file sharing via USB3, to name a few. Plus mine acts a local WINS server, so my non Windows clients can connect to my Windows ones via their computer name rather than IP address. All from one low powered device.

@drasim If you think Virgin routers are crap you want to see some of the xDSL provider ones. A Talk Talk one my Aunt was given was absolutely atrocious. If you need to change it for any reason they want to charge you or lock you into another contract. Personally I've had very little problems with Virgin. My router died last year and I rang them 00:30 early hours of Sunday morning and once they determined it was faulty an engineer was sent out Monday to replace it. As with all their equipment, they own it, and are therefore responsible for it. How many other companies do that?

@JellybearXo Why is it that people think that everyone lives in a bubble, and because they don't have a need for something, no one should?! If the Internet has shown us nothing else, there's a big world out there, with a tremendous range of diversity. People don't all live or do things the same way. Thank goodness.

Why is this called a switch and not a hub?
Switches intelligently send out messages from one computer to another. Hubs were used a long time ago, and simply relayed a message from one computer to every computer, and they had to disregard it if it wasn't for them.

This deal has gone hot on an old 10/100 switch, crazy most folk broadband connection is faster than this switch, moving data or streaming is going to be slooow

Moving data maybe depends on the source/destination Speed, streaming not likely unless you are streaming raw HD/4K footage even most streaming services 4K streams are under 30Mbit/s, Even Blu-ray is around 50Mbit/s (Or so Wikipedia claims) so unless you are putting it on the end of a busy media server serving multiple concurrent streams it's unlikely to be the bottleneck for streaming.


So yeh don't get it for your Nas, but if it's just for your TV STB/Xbox.etc it will probably be fine.
This deal has gone hot on an old 10/100 switch, crazy most folk broadband connection is faster than this switch, moving data or streaming is going to be slooow
Pay the extra few quid and get a gig switch. This is a waste of money and is legacy. Who in their right mind buys 10/100 switches nowadays
This won't bottleneck anything but the fastest fttp internet connections or pc to pc file transfers - it won't hurt 99% of internet connections and is fine for streaming video etc. Gigabit may be faster but most people will never notice the difference if this is behind your TV or something.

That said this is still pretty pointless- who doesn't have an old router with 4 fast Ethernet ports on it that you could use instead for free? Just turn off DHCP and you're sorted- and if it's a wireless router you get a free boost to your WiFi signal too.
Meh. Might as well try your luck at a car boot sale and blow the dust off something for £1 instead?

Can't say I'd pay a fiver for 100mbit with gigabit switches from around £9, even if it was throttled by a homeplug - where you plonk something when you buy it isn't necessarily where it ends up a year or two later!

Use it for mass storage rather than anything too intensive and it performs fine. However, can vouch for the slow performance - even with 7200rpm drives it's not that great...
Avoid, they do not perform well. They cost more but go for a QNAP.

As a 4 bay NAS that's capable of Plex, this is the cheapest you're going to get. But yes, I can vouch for you on this. I had a ReadyNAS and even with Gigabit equipment the read/write was stupidly slow. I ended up selling it and decided to take the punch on a Synology DS215j. On the same equipment the read/write was miles faster. The software is miles better too.

Sure it's not Plex capable but I use Kodi for that.
I have one of these and it works like a dream. Really easy setup.

Bought this to extend my VM wifi into my extension which has poor strength.
Unboxed it, plugged it in next to my VM modem and pressed the WPS button on the Netgear then the Modem. It's was paired up in seconds :)

I then moved it to my kitchen and plugged it in... Result! full wifi signal in the extension, yes it's marginally slower than the VM modem but it works great for streaming Netflix etc.
Thanks for posting this. Had been looking into getting a wifi extender for a while but was confused as to which to buy.

I ordered this yesterday and it arrived today. It took me about 10 minutes to read instructions and setup and it's working really well. I should have bought one ages ago as it would have saved me loads on my mobile data charges.

Highly recommended!

FYI I am using it to extend my virgin media hub the one extender recommended on their website is about £50 so this is a real bargain for £15.
Now £14.99 for non-prime too.
Excellent to see Netgear stuff as cheap as TPLink. TPLink is crap, Netgear been doing this stuff for years and properly. Buy Netgear, don't buy TPLink, simple.
TPLink has been manufacturing network products for as long as Netgear, in fact they are bigger then Netgear worldwide so must be doing something right. Personally never used their stuff as its not much cheaper then Netgear which is adequate for a home lab.
The mention of Repeaters or Poweline make network guys faceplam. Please avoid
You can get a Meraki AP for free for attending one of their seminars. Much better kit then anything Netgear or TPLink make. If theres one thing the Chinese cant do its a GUI
Couple points here:
1.Attending a seminar equals traveling cost and time, neither of which are worth getting a free AP for.
2. Many people find a repeater is adequate for the job and often the only solution due to physical location.

1. Seminar is online, takes 45 minutes and you don't even have to watch. Just call your rep and they send the kit next day. I have an Access Point, Firewall and Switch (the FW is excellent the others are ok). They made back their marketing budget when I bought 30 APs .
2. Very true - ignorance is bliss :)

been considering this for a while for my media library and photo storage. maybe IRS time to bit the bullet.

I wouldn't personally. Unless you need 4 bays I'd go with a 2bay Synology or QNAP NAS. The performance is far superior to the READYNAS series and DSM well, let's just say it's the best NAS software out there imo.


​unfortunately I do need a 4 bay as I have 4x 8tb drives full of media. unless you can recommend a better 4bay without breaking the bank??

Tempted - bought a pair end of last month for £50 to link router (in garage) to office (upstairs).

Replaced the TP Link ones I bought which are just as fast but go to sleep and drop the link too easily.

I suspect these also drop the link occasionally but much less than the TP-Links

Used of these and it burned down my hoise

Assuming you meant burnt down your 'house'; sorry to hear it if it's true.

However, in theory any connected faulty electrical product could start a fire. Your only complete defence against that remote eventuality would be to disconnect every electric appliance in your home. More practically, to reduce your risk, you can ensure you buy electronic products that meet relevant UK and EU standards like these.

Alright for the price but I'd personally spend that little extra and go for a Synology or QNAP NAS. I had a ReadyNAS and even with GBit switches and NICs the performance was poor and the software was shoddy.

Switch to a DS215j (old model now, replaced by the DS216j) and found performance was miles better.

Not a bad price for a 8 port gigabit unmanaged switch, it has MAC table so it's not a hub.

This should see better performance for those people who don't know the difference between a hub and switch. Switch is better.
This is a good deal. Deserves more heat.

If using Virgin 200mbs broadband, wire one port into this switch - will there be any speed loss to remaining connected devices?
No. This switch supports gigabit so 1000Mbps

same speed but with 4gigabit switch and 20 quids cheaper ..

Yup routers are generally cheaper, but involve a fair bit of tinkering with settings and IP addresses to configure as an Access Point. This dedicated AP is more plug in and go. But I agree if you're not worried about changing settings a router is the way to go.

How is this different to the 8-port GS608?
GS608 has power of ethernet, (which might be useful if u need security cameras in the future.)
No PoE on the GS608? The 608 is just the plastic version of this hub, no real difference other than being metal vs plastic
I checked and other than plastic has larger packet buffer size. GS608v4 vs GS308

The GS308P has PoE.

What do people look for in aRouter? I am trying to get one of my devices to WOL but when ever it is switched off my existing router forgets it's IP so the magic packet never reaches it's destination. it's driving me mad!!!
You need to reserve an IP on the router to get it to come back with the same one each time or alternatively just set to fixed/static address on the device.
Thanks Bobbler, I tried this. but when the device is off, the router after a few hours still forgets the ARP entry and the WOL request is lost in space...

I have this and have no issues rock solid. I primarily bought this so I could remove the need for my BT open reach fibre modem as it's in built on this.

I did exactly the same,

Much better than standard BT fibre router. It's been solid as hell and we use it for fibre and a SONOS network.

5 stars!
how's the GUI on one of these? Love my RT-N66U but the AC really makes a big difference in my house as I found out when I allowed the superhubs AC WiFi on. Cannot possibly use the superhub for its other drawbacks so looking for a reasonably priced and customisable AC router.

WiFi has issues and power line has issues. In some houses, particularly those built from blockwork made with **** or ashcrete they block wireless signals quite aggressively and you don't get great range. I know some people who can't get reliable WiFi in the next room, let alone the other side of the house. Power line gets temperamental with some wiring and doesn't work well across breakers. The best in-home connectivity is classic Ethernet but few people can actually run the wires needed, and fewer feel comfortable fitting the connectors.
Horses for courses, each to their own, whatever floats your boat, etc.
I have 1900AC in my house and there are some blind spots because of the kitchen appliances and metal splashback blocking signals. So recently I added a wireless 750AC repeater and it does a fair job. But to reach my workshop in the garden I use 1200 PowerLine (upgraded with the recent Devolo wireless deal on Amazon).

To be honest mate, I wouldn't know what to Google to find out in practical terms how this would set up in my house. What do you connect this to? Genuine query and I find the explanation given by people here is far more personal and better than Google a lot of times.
If you use Ethernet cables from your router to devices but are limited by the amount of Ethernet ports on your router this basically gives you more ports, plug an Ethernet cable into the switch from your router then plug anything you want into the free ports, job done.
​thanks so it basically adds more ethernet port to connect to devices?
cheers!
really appreciate that and have a good day sir!
think of it like a 5-way extension lead for networking. it lets you plug in 4 additional things and the 5th port connects to your existing router/modem.
Handy if you have a few things in a cupboard or in a TVunit, Sky+HD, Roku, Apple TV, Hive etc - run 1 network cable to the cupboard then this switch lets you plug in 4 networked devices onto that one cable.

You also can connect it to powerline if your router far from you network devices. You will need two powerline, one to router, one to this.

Is there a way to reduce the speed on the extender plugs connected to a WiFi router? The WiFi connection is horrible in my house when it's switched on and using it for the ps4
That's probably down to your PS4 taking up all the broadband bandwidth downloading updates.
Nothing to do with your wifi.
Once the plug is off the internet connection is fine speed wise and it's obvious why as that's what the Ethernet plug is supposed to do but I was wondering if there's a way to restrict the Ethernet plug speed as I can't stream movies while family are playing ps4. It's annoying
I don't think so, but someone else may know more than me.
You can't restrict the PS4 to less bandwidth either, at least, the last time I tried to do mine you couldn't.

Just unplug the PS4 from the internet...... if you aren't downloading an update you need urgently, or they aren't playing a game that needs online connection.


​in the qos settings of your router, you may be able to set ethernet # (whatever your ps4 is using) to low priority. may be able to set all others to high priority ehich should help.
