Good price for this, thanks OP
Solid price as it’s metal enclosure too and I use it, very good 🏽
Just wish they would put 1 or 2 POE ports on these for a few pounds extra.

As it's unmanaged wouldn't worry just get whatever is cheaper. For part of my network I've had the cheapest plastic tenda gigabit switch and it's been absolutely solid for about 8 years.

Thanks for your reply. I do prefer the metal ones and they're just for behind the TV on the wall.
Good to know brands aren't that important
OOS.

Ordered. Happy to wait & see if it turns up. In no hurry

I've had them all fail, Netgear, Links and most recently a TL link switch failed. So I've replaced them all.
What is the difference between an unmanaged and an unmanaged hub?
Hi can anyone help.

I’m with virgin media get speeds up to 100mbps but my router is in the centre of the house and my pc and PS4 get ok connection however is there a way to get the wired connection to the pc and PS4?

I know Ethernet is possible however I would need maybe a 20m wire.

Managed allows some more advanced features like VLANs. So you can segregate and tag traffic with a specific VLAN. If you need to ask what a managed hub is then an unmanaged hub is what you want, they're super easy and plug+play.

Could try some of the homeplugs but they can be very hit and miss.

best bet is always a cable, mine goes out my wall, up the outside then back in again where my office is.

Thank you. And your right. I hoped I could use one on place of an unmanaged one to be able to set up an alternative DNS server as the Sky router I was thinking of using does not allow it. And I need the correct router for a 100+ meg connection (Glastonbury) with sky

Nope they wont act as a DNS server, however if you can get a raspberry pi and install pihole.

It will run the DNS server, it can run the DHCP server and also block ads across the network. Pretty easy to setup and then leaves only routing and wifi to the sky hub. (These hubs provided by ISPs are rubbish, got rid ages ago!)

Regardless of managed or unmanaged, don’t get a hub, always a switch

If i've got Virgin Hub in modem mode connected to Asus Ac68u router, can I use one of these to connect the Asus to router to give me extra ports without any downside?

Thank you. Auto corrupt changer GFast to Glastonbury. I tried pihole a year or so ago, but was always a faff to update. But may try it again. I was also going to pop Adguard Home onto my PI, their alternative to PI-Hole but could never get it up and running. May fire the PI and put a fresh PI hole installation on. Perhaps it’s been updated. Be interesting to see if it works with Certain programmes. I know Adguard desktop, can block ads in two particular music programs I use. Thank you, for reminding me of pihole.

Yes but obviously limited to 1Gb as the max the port from the ASUS can output is 1Gb so that 1Gb is then spread across the ports in use on the switch, but being realistic your internet won’t be 1Gb and assume your not running a lot of transfers between machines
