Excellent .....thanks OP

I have one of these from Dabs who I think were offering the same price on eBay. It's OK I suppose although the LED display does not change colour if you connect 100Mb devices to it - which can sometimes be useful for diagnostics. If you want a smart/managed switch for not too much it might be worth taking a look at the TP-Link TL-SG2008 for £41.91.

This one looks to be much better value if you want a managed switch:

Think that switch relies on a Windows only TP-Link utility for config, the version I listed can be configured via web browser(and SSH), not sure what other differences there are.

I say cold, only because I got the Netgear GS205, when it was £14.xx... This surely can't be good value at the same price?!

Banned

so which is better the netgear GS205 or this one, need one but not sure which one to go for as not very technical minded, the netgear one is £13.77 at dabs but probably plus postage

At this price, they're both the same.

I order one of these on the last post, still waiting for it.

The Netgear GS205 seems to be a similar specification as the TP-Link, not much to choose between them, except the price is £19.98.

this is likely a daft question but just want to check.

Half of my devices are gigabit ethernet ports, some others are restricted to 100mb. By having any 100mb active, even if not in use (a printer for example), will that limit the speed of everything else to 100, even if they're not using the slower connected device?

I believe this used to be the case with early Wireless B/G devices, where all the devices would be crippled to to the speed of the slowest device on the wifi network regardless of it they were in use, but it's been a long time since I read up on any of this

Nice price drop, always adding heat for TP-link

Just got mine, took all of 2 minutes to get working with 6 of my devices, and it is doing a grand job.
