People were saying they prefer switches with power and ethernet ports on the same side. Here goes

Time machines at the ready, this was £13.97 in December 2016 when I purchased it.

Great bit of kit though, does what it is supposed to do. Bought the 5 port version recently as well to upgrade an old TP Link 10/100 switch.
Is there any 5 port Hdmi Switch need it bad
Quick question for somebody with knowledge. I have a non gigabit port modem with a separate gigabit router connected via ethernet to each other in separate rooms. If I put this switch and connect it to the non gigabit modem will I achieve gigabit speeds? Thanks. .
We also want it in black!

Confusing question.
OK I assume you mean will it make you connection faster. The answer is NO. It will allow you extra Ethernet connections allowing you to connect more things to it online. It's a switch so has no effect on speed & should work with any router.

My understanding is that you can only get the higher gigabit throughput between gigabit devices so from a gigabit computer through the gigabit switch to your gigabit modem. So solong as you have all gigabit components then it will be at the high gigabit speed. Think I am using the word gigabit too much but linking them through your non gigabit modem you are bottle necking the whole system...

??? I think you'll find that's a completely different sort of switch and no not just cause it's HDMI.

lol just going to buy one and I see that I too bought one back in Oct 16 !
Lol. It was me that commented about having power and ethernet sockets all on the same side...

This one has the ethernet sockets the wrong way up so if you're using flat cat5/6/7 cables they'll likely have to have a twist in them before connecting to the other device - ugh I can feel my ocd itch already...

I guess you could turn the switch upside down? Or is that an OCD step too far lol

Better yet put the other devices upside down and the switch will be fine.

There are always deals on here for Sharpies. You could have quite a few different colours then

there's a "wrong way up" for RJ45s ?

Urgh. I had to go and have a shower at the thought...

Don't know, but every device I have my switch connected to has the socket the other way up.

If the cables are flat, they're the same either way up what are you on about?

They are the wrong way up on the socket side. The clicky bit which you have to press to unlock them is on the bottom! Most inconvenient, so you probably have to lift the whole box to get your finger on the clicky bit to unlock the rj45, very strange

Now I see what you mean. My router has the same way up. Switch is different. But I don't run short enough cables for it to bother me but I get it.

Yes, it's called an 8 bit port and you don't use all the ports. Tip: you are on a thread with a great deal on one. Buy it.

As long as the wires that go between two 'hosts' both plug into gigabit network-thingums, you should get gigabit speeds (and it's normal to get less than ACTUAL GIGABIT transfer rates whatever you do, FYI)

EDIT: I see lots of other replies, you should take plenty of notice of of them to Smiley

Cheers. I've sorted the issue by getting a new modem. Talk talk router is now occupying a landfill site. Even the rats are complaining about the poor WiFi signal.
