Best price I can find for a reputable 8 port gigabit switch. Free delivery plus 2% Quidco or 2.02% TCB.

This desktop switch offers an inexpensive alternative to fibre optics for the SOHO and small and medium business (SMB). Increasing network loads can be handled with the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet.

Gigabit connectivity without fibre

The switch provides 8 Gigabit ports in the familiar Ethernet format, so it works seamlessly with existing network cables (Cat5 or higher). Up to 2000 Mbps can be achieved in full-duplex mode, giving workstations bottleneck-free access to server data.

Plug-and-Play installation

All there is to do is plug the cables into the switch. All ports support both straight-through and crossover cable types, eliminating the need for an uplink port. And with 10/100/1000 Mbps auto-sensing, no configuration is required.

Think Green

By sensing whether attached devices are ON or OFF and estimating the cable length, the switch is able to adjust its power consumption, for a total saving of up to 40%*. *Figure based on a scenario assuming that PCs are used for 10 hours a day, powered off 14 hours a day and connected to the switch using 20m cables.

Power-saving feature, up to 40%* less power consumption (dlink green version only)

Good price.

Looks godod to me - I have used on of these and its not the prettiest but worked well (still is for someone else) - 8 ports gigabit less than a tenner delivered - excellent.

Good price - got the 5-port and it works well.
A plus of the 5-port is that it can be powered by a mini USB cable from your PC (this looks like it needs the DC adapter).

Good to hear the 5 port can be powered by a mini. It's a pain that my tp-link 5 port is mains powered. Takes another socket on the 8 way that could be used for something else.

Great price, ordered a TP Link from Amazon Cyber Monday for £11.99 but cancelled after reading the reviews.
Thanks OP

+ postage?

911 reviews, with 882 showing a 4 or above star rating? What did you read that was off? I was thinking about getting this, as I have the 5 port one and want to add a few more ports (and keep the 5 port one as a spare)...

Slightly off the topic - are there any experts here who know of a good ADSL with WIFI Router than can do full NAT Loopback (at a good price please). Trying to setup FTP server on my network and TalkTalk do not provide static IP address. In fairness to TalkTalk the basic router provided has worked well and the service has been good. Only thing I am not so keen is all the sales calls trying to get me to take up various TV offers. I only want internet and cannot understand what they are saying half the time, broken English from the other side of the world.

using a free domain like dyndns.com or no-ip.org, then port forward port 21 (FTP) to your server, simples

dyndns.com is not free anymore unfortunately

I think you might be slightly confusing what NAT loopback does... NAT Loopback just allows a user to connect to his/her own public IP address from inside the LAN, so it doesn't matter if you don't have a static IP address. Do you want to connect to your FTP server from outside your LAN? In that case, you would need a static IP, or have a look at DynDNS and other services like that. I use dynDNS, and on my raspberryPI I have a daemon running that updates DynDNS so that if my IP changes, I can still access my URL no problem.

Thanks for your answers. I must confess to getting a bit confused. I already have setup a name with no-ip.org, although the free account has to be renewed every 30 days and you are not allowed to give the host a name of choice. I can access the FTP server from another PC on my network (using he IP4 address), but cannot get access using the no-ip name. I have an entry in hosts file on the server (all computers are using Windows 8.1) redirecting the no-ip name to the internal IP4 address of my server (which is connected wirelessly to the router, but the wireless aspect should not make any difference).

Sorry to be stupid, but I am sure I will crack this in the end. Partly a penalty of old age, I am sure I would have got this working quicker 20 years ago. I used to setup Novell Networks in the good old days.

Too many comments about streaming issues + one about a noisy power adapter + I was only buying as a spare = couldn't be bothered

Thanks - just ordered mine via quidco.

I am sorry if you have followed this already but here are the steps to setup ftp / http.
1. Subscribe to dyndns or something similar.
2, Setup the account details from 1 into your router / hub. If you dont have this functionality in router then use a computer.
3. Setup the router / hub to forward ftp request to static ip (STATIC IP is must) no matter if it is Wired / Wireless
4. Allow the incoming port through firewall on the router.

If you follow the above as guideline - you should be working. If you can get to your ftp via ip and not the domain name then open cmd and type below
ping mydomain.dyndna.com

replace mydomain.dyndna.com with your choosen url from 1. If you dont get your own ip back then you know dyndns or similar are not setup correctly. Message me if you need more help - Happy to help.

Fantastic deal

call me stupid but will this extenf the amount ethernet sports

That's lots of devices, are you running a LAN party?

just finished hard wiring the house so have 2 cat6 cables in each room all of which go up to the loft which is where the switches are going plus a switch by the desktop and another by the TV

Did you run the cables in the wall? Hard wiring is the better way to go. No small job though.

Yeah, but we were doing a lot of work to the house anyway and putting up stud walls in a lot of places so I thought I would take advantage of that I am currently getting speeds of around 70MB/s which is a nice change to the max of 10MB/s before and means I can actually use NAS now without getting frustrated with the speeds.

My Dlink Green Gigabit switches have arrived now and I have to say they are much better than I was expecting. They are about half the size I thought they would be and they can be powered with a USB

Look like a bargain. I ordered one of these. Just waiting for delivery.

ta OP bagged two.

looking to get the 5 port version, how do you power this off usb? as mentioned

the power supply is just a 1a usb cable so if you have a usb wall plug 1a (most phone chargers etc) and a mini usb (not micro) then that will work. You could also plug a mini usb into your pc and that should work too.

Out of stock but looks like they have more due in soon, thanks op have ordered anyway.
Edit: Ended up cancelling as I ordered on 7th January with stock due in 11th now it's been put back until 21st oO
