Do switches actually use that much electricity? Wondering how much the “green” functionality actually saves in real money!

a few pence a month I suspect... I suppose it all adds up but don't expect to see much of a visible saving using this in place of a 'non green' device.

Hi, I have a Powerline going to my TV at the moment because wifi is rubbish in that room, I would like to use my NOWTV wired rather than wifi too. I have tried a WiFi Powerline but that makes no difference at all, would I be able to plug the Powerline into this box and then run TV and NOWTV off the box or does this have to be direct into my router? Thank you :-)

Yes, this will or. I’ve got a 24-port connected to my router using Powerline and it works a treat.

I've got virgin 200mbps and i'm looking at getting the Google Wifi and having 1 of these off the main Google wifi (which is connected to the modem).

What do I need to be buying Ethernet cable wise to ensure the fastest speeds to all devices.(Assuming htis product is good enough in the first place)

Hello, I set this up in my home yesterday, virgin super hub, in modem mode, connected to the Google WiFi then to this switch, with another switch hanging off that. Works great, and the Google WiFi is a lot better than the virgin hub. I brought Cat5e, or cat 6.
For the uninitiated...

I have just switched to Sky who in their infinite wisdom decided to put just two ethernet ports on the back of their new router.

Is it just a case of plugging this in, running an ethernet cable between Sky hub and this switch and then seamlessly use the ports on the switch as needed?
