the same one is £6.99 at scan. of course that doesn't include delivery, but if you have other items to buy and can take advantage of the free delivery it can work out cheaper. scan also have very cheap network cables

have one of these they are very small and work perfectly

Is this basically an ethernet hub? 1 ethernet in, 5 outs?
Thats what i've been looking for if it is.

Does anyone know if it's self powered or does it need plugged in to the mains?

Yes and No, Technically it is a "Switch" not a "Hub", for for most applications it will work as a Hub, but not ALL as a hub shoves everything out every port and a switch learns whats on each port and only shoves the traffic out of the correct port. (the last statement is just a rough statement)

Yes it needs power via a mains socket.

It has 5 ports total, so could be used as a 1 in 4 out, (again rough statement)

Hope that helps

If you want 1 input, 5 output, you want a router, not a hub.
This is a switch/hub.
There are no self-powered ethernet hubs.

Nearest you can get is a ]usb-powered ethernet hub

Cheers for the help p-e-t-e

this has been this price for around a year at play. have boughgt a few & recommend

Thanks again,
all i need really is a 2 port splitter/hub (self-powered) for Ethernet cables so i can get my 360 and Orange TVbox online without cable switching.

Really appreciate if any of you folks can point me in the way of a cheap solution.
Thanks again.

Afraid you'll be looking for ever. An Ethernet Switch for c£7-8 is CHEAP. Look in your PC World and I'm sure you'll find an Ethernet CABLE (worth 50p) for more than this switch!

Splitter isn't a concept in Ethernet - that's a SWITCH.

Hub as previously mentioned IS a concept in Ethernet BUT it's mostly fallen into disuse as it was 'dumb' and just repeated anything it received to everyone else, by comparison with a 'switch' which ONLY sends the signal to the necessary port(s). As switches got so clever/fast/cheap they've nearly totally replaced hubs.

Standard Ethernet cables/devices do NOT carry charge for powering any device. There IS a standard for Power over Ethernet (using some of the unused wires I presume) but that is typically found in £100+ switches and COSTLY devices such as monitoring cameras that would be positioned in odd places away from mains power with just one Ethernet cable to them, and has nothing to do with self-powered switches.

(That is unlike say USB which has 5V power present, which is why you see 'self-powered' extenders/hubs on USB, ie using a little bit of the power meant for the end-device to regenerate/send the USB data signals.)

Your after the same thing as me, one of these.

Thanks for the info mk-donald.
A friend of mine has something for splitting from one single cable to two outputs. It's cheap (along the lines of one of those plastic broadband filter things) .
I have so many power sockets and am trying to avoid another plugged/powered device.

But if they're not available, i'll need to look at something like this.
Thanks again.

one of the above with one of the below might be what you want. no idea if/how it works, but if you are only using one device at a time and the other is completely off and sending no ethernet signal it might do the trick
