It’ll give you more ports yes. Only 4 though - plug one of the router’s two into this and then whatever was in the router’s second port into this. You can locate the switch wherever you want.

To expand your network when you don’t have enough ports or to run a single cable to another location rather than (say) 5 individual cables to another room for 5 devices.

The network connected items I currently have in my house.

2 Smart tellys
1 server
1 desktop
1 nuc
2 virgin V6 box
1 router
1 virgin modem

The way my network is wired, I need ports for days.

I have a single power line adapter behind the living room TV. This feeds a similar hub which then feeds the TV, Sky box and 2 consoles. So much better than using wireless and no need to route an Ethernet cable around the living room.

What would be a typical use scenario for this?

Although my network switches are not Netgear.....yet, I'm not sure if my scenario is typical:

LAN Port #1 on the "FritzBox 7490" (VDSL modem/router) is connected to an 5-port "TP-Link" unmanaged switch, which in turn is connected to separate 8-port "TP-Link" unmanaged switch in the lounge and also two bedrooms with smart TVs .

The 8-port "TP-Link" unmanaged switch in the lounge gives network/internet access to a Smart TV, XB1, PS4,Humax PVR etc in the lounge.

LAN Port #2 on the "FritzBox 7490" is connected to another "TP-Link" 5-port unmanaged switch which gives network/internet access to Smart TV, PC,XB1X, ReadyNAS in my den.

LAN Port #3 on the "FritzBox 7490" give network/internet access to kitchen smart TV.

LAN Port 4 on the "FritzBox 7490" is connected to a Hikvision CCTV system (2 camera system).

So all in all, 3 unmanaged switches (18 ports between them) connected to VDSL Modem/router and no real issues (everything works).

In total, there are in the region of 50 connected devices in the house (Ethernet and WiFi) and very little in the way of issues.

Typical.......probably not

Edit......just bought 2 x 5-Port and an 8-Port! Damn HUKD!

What I do like about these is that the power cable and LAN ports are on the same side, not like similar items from Netgear.

I love these sort of HUKD posts.... "I don't know what it is, but i can't resist a bargain!"

Yes.

EDIT - this was probably a bit blunt but I was in a rush, this is exactly what you need for this exact scenario, rather than 5 individual Powerline units. But you’ll get 4 ports in your other room as one of the 5 is used for uplink.

I have run out of sockets on my Virgin router. Too much stuff connected, even if the wifi works is netter to use a wired connection. I had to reconfigure the router due to me and my neighbours using the same wifi channels and losing connection regularly.
My PC reads data off NAS so much faster on a wired connection.
Prime delivery in 2 to 4 weeks? Looks odd.

Received this today, the switch is different from the picture. The power goes in to the back rather than the front.
