Description

200Mbps full duplex transmission
The GetNet GS-115P is a high speed fast Ethernet switch for home and small business network . The GS-115P not only complies with IEEE 802.3/802.3u 10/100Mbps Ethernet standard but also supports full duplex transmission. The full duplex feature can double the network throughput on every port. It is used for high speed server or switch-to-switch connections. The maximum throughput of every port can reach up to 200Mbps .

Supports wire-speed and flow control
The GS-115P built-in non-blocking and store-and-forward architecture enables your network with full-wire speed connections. It accommodates with flow control for full duplex mode and back pressure for half-duplex mode which ensures reliable data transfer and helps to prevent data lost. Use the GS-115P to create a high-speed network and benefit from it's ultimate performance and reliability.

Supports Auto-MDI/MDI-X and auto negotiation
The GS-115P supports PnP (plug and play) installation and auto-MDI/MDI-X function. You can connect the GS-115P with computers or Ethernet devices without any configuration. You can also use either straight-through or cross-over Ethernet cable and combine 10Mbps or 100Mbps devices connected with the GS-115P. The switch will automatically detect the right cable and speed of your devices.

Power saving
With new generation power saving mode, the GS-115P can reduce power consumption. It is the best solution for home and small business.

I brought one last week. Great little device, also has 2 lug holes on the back for wall mounting.

great deal, but i have been looking for one for a while but want a 10/100/1000 at a decent price anyone know of one?

I use this D-Link >> amazon.co.uk/D-L…t_b Ive not looked around for prices but I wanted above 10/100 for over 10mb transfer speeds

I bought one of these a while back. Am not sure if it was due to build quality, but it made a high pitched tone when data was being transferred. I decided to switch to a netgear switch instead.

This is a great deal if your not bothered about file transfer speeds, but its probably why its cheap.

So people know a 10/100Mbps will transfer speeds of up to 10MB/s which is okay but I was running a home server and regular transferred files to and from and wondered why my files were only transferring at a painstakingly slow 7MB/s I upgraded to a 10/100/1000 and now get transfer speeds of 76+MB/s which is great for moving large files.

The cheapest 10/100/1000 I could find was about £35 though so you do pay a lot more for the luxury.

Thanks

This is not really a bargain because they have been this price for a while. I bought one and its a great little unit. Routine run HD video off my home server via this switch and never had a hiccup with it. Sits in the attic and has been OK through all the very cold weather we've had.

Thanks OP and purchased. Handy than most of the things I buy

Excuse my total ignorance, what does this do? I use a getnet wireless usb stick for wireless broadband.

Splits one wired internet ethernet connection into many.

its the same as an extension socket,except you plug cat 5 cables in rather than mains plugs
you can therefore connect more than 1 device to ethernet connection (wired)

I could do with one of these but it looks like they've all gone. Can anyone recommend something similar?

ok, enough

When I ordered this a couple of weeks ago, it came with a European power adpater and not a UK one. Returned it.

Recent feedback suggests UK adaptors are being supplied now, was yours from Amazon direct or one of their merchants?

I just ordered one, so will report back what it comes with.

Cheers, Des.

Didn't think they'd be so popular now, with wireless and routers acting as switches.

4 ports are not enough sometimes.
or maybe people have many devices that need Ethernet in a separate location to the router.

For anything other than casual surfing & Youtube, wireless isn't so great.

My router is in the hall, so run my blu ray player/xbox/sky hd box/computer off one of these boxes I have my comp wireless aswell when it need be.

This is what you need. £13.67. Marvellous bit of kit. Plug it in and then never notice it again.

Gigabit switches are an plenty faster than 10/100 wired, and streets ahead of wireless for both speed and reliability. I have given up with wireless. Where a regular cable will not go I use Homeplugs. Yes a lot of people have modem routers but they are usually 10/100, gigabit routers are still relatively few and relatively speaking, VERY expensive.

If you have 2 gigabit devices, you'd be mad not to spend the extra £8 for the faster device. Even if you don't have 2 gigabit devices, most things you buy now are gigabit capable, so invest £8 in a bit of future-proofing.

Am I right in thinking that with a 36 Mbit/s connection I should be looking at downloads of around 4 MB/s?

In which case a 10/100 switch would be fine & wouldn't reduce speed?

10/100 is fine for passing your incoming broadband around the house. A gigabit switch will improve transfer speeds within your home network.

For instance I have a desktop PC, an Acer Revo under the telly for home cinema, and 2 Buffalo NAS drives. They are all gigabit enabled. Sending files from one device to any other would take that much longer without a gigabit switch.

yours is the better way to go. its on its way thx CoenFan
