HUKD Amazon deal

No cashback available at Amazon though? (although Nectar points are)

Depends which retailer you prefer I suppose...

Pretty good deal

I am new to these but I have a DNS323 server which reads at about 11-12 mb per second to my desktop through the router, If I got one of these and connected the DNS 323 and my desktop to it would I see any improvement in speed? I have cat 5e cables. then could I connect my standard virgin router to this to still get broadband on my desktop? or am I just being thick, even though IO love technology I am not the best with it...

If you have gigabit network adapters in all the clients (server, desktop etc.) and your router's built in switch is also gigabit then you should see considerable speed increase.

Network will always operate at the speed of the slowest connected device though, so if any of your devices only support 10/100 then that's the speed you're stuck with I'm afraid. There are ways around it, things get quite complex...

The DNS323 has gigabit ethernet built in, so as long as your desktop PC does too (it probably will, if not you could buy a pci card for less than £10), then you will probably get speeds of around 60Mb/s, depending on the drives.

They key is to connect all your gigabit devices to the gigabit switch. Routers usually do not support gigabit speed, but that is ok if they only handle the internet traffic. The intranet can stay in the gigabit switch.

Hey, not knocking this deal but I have to say play suck, I always workon the basis that amazon have to be at least 10% more expensive than play before I'll even consider the drop in service to be expected from play. that's my two cents anyway, oh and I did post the other deal lol.

Used to agree with you martyj999, but Amazon lost a lot of my custom when they started using HDNL. We've had all sorts go missing, left outside in the rain, drop kicked (!!) over the fence etc. since HDNL started delivering.

note, the dns 323 even tho 10/100/1000 struggles with higher speeds on the network

You're giving misleading advice, I'm afraid.

If I have a gigabit router, a gigabit-capable PC, a gigabit-capable laptop and a Windows 95 PC capable of only 100mbps, then only connections to or from my Windows 95 PC will be at the slower speed. Connections between every other device will be at 1000mbps.

For the sake of completeness; if i have a gigabit-capable PC, a gigabit-capable laptop, but only a 100mbps-capable router, everything will operate at 100mbps.

Slightly off-topic; has anyone found any deals for gigabit pci cards?

same price as amazon

Nice price, good router (forget Belkins and stuff, they're just a name).

Thanks for reply, ordered through amazon as cant stand play.com's terms... voted this hot though

i used to have (well still just dont use it) as dns 313 (i think, single drive device, but same chipset etc) and the max i could get out of (from memory) was around 30mbs, this is due to the speed of the processor on the nas drive, but most nas drives have similar performace (around the same price point)

For 5 years iv'e been playing XBOX and PS3 using 10Mbps, i only just found out yesterday! Thanks for this, really want to know how well my connection will improve now.

if you after faster connection for xbox or ps3 then this device will make no difference as your ISP is delivering up 10mpbs.....the device is really for speeding up connections eg. your own home network

the only way you can increase that is to get a package from them with a faster speed

i have dlink dns320 NAS and this switch and i saw my speeds increase from 9mpbs to around 15mpbs. but this may be limited to the eco drive i have in their.
