The same router, but in a plastic housing, is £14.99. I’d probably pay the extra pound for this one though as it looks much better.


comparing with these 2 TP-LINK TL-SG1008D 8-Ports Gigabit Desktop Ethernet Switch vs NETGEAR GS308-100UKS 8 Port Gigabit Ethernet Desktop/Wallmount Switch ,, wich one should i get it ? thank you


Yes it is ok to use with Powerline.


Fine with a power adaptor. It is how I use mine...The powerline will basically "bridge" one route to the other and what you have either end is of no relevance to the powerline. I may get one of these. I have a TP Link currently behind my TV but my Kodi just will not stream so I don't know if it is the network switch, my new TV or my new Amp that is causing the issue at the moment!


I would have thought this was fine to use with a powerline adapter ... if you buy from zon , they pay no tax, but customer returns are good (Your morals may vary) :)

8 port gigabit switches from Netgear and D-Link are often sub £15...saw a D-link for £9.99 the other day,


Old junk cold . Like this is year 2000.


Got a brand-new, sealed one for £1 on eBay, & when the seller personally delivered it in person, I paid him another £1 for his trouble. So, may be worth a look in your local eBay listings / Gumtree / Shpock / similar before purchasing & save yourself a bit.

This review on Amazon kills the product dead: "Product quality is great, but let me explain why it deserves only 2-star. Imagine you have remotely located router which serves as internet access point, now you connect it to network and all work great... until you switch off your PC, TV or local network would be inactive (at night, for instance). Then you will end up with HomePlug on the side of your router going to power saving mode and the only way to deactivate this mode is to reset this plug (unplugging it). There is no official way you can deactivate this mode. Some people tried deactivating it via Zyxel utility, but it doesn't save this state (it saves it in utility, but plugs would go to power saving mode anyway). Netgear Manufacturer states on their official page that it can't be deactivated and they do not plan to add this possibility in the future. It is beyond my understanding as other manufacturers have the option to deactivate this mode. 4x plugs have been returned and will go with the alternatives. Just be aware."


Nice. Quick question who here actually gets more then 200mbs ? I get 150 at uni in east london and 20 max at home.


You missed one


There are different chipset vendors - products marketed as 2000Mbps primarily use Qualcomm chipsets whereas products marketed as 1200Mbps tend to use Broadcom. They achieve their speeds in different ways (bandwidth etc) and the way the marketed speed is determined also seems to vary slightly (neither has any basis in reality). Without getting too technical, most tests find 2000Mbps products to be not significantly better than 1200Mbps products - and in many cases worse.


any good? is it better than AV500 TP-link??

From where?


Hence why I started off my comment with the words "not saying these aren't any good but a warning in general."


Yes but these are sold by Amazon themselves plus they are made of 100% copper not alu and to be fair they are not eBay or China and come on it's an Ethernet Cable for 80p


Not saying these aren't any good but a warning in general to watch out for dodgy Ethernet cables. Ebay in particular is full of them. If you don't mind paying the extra, Excel Networking make excellent quality cables and networking equipment in general.


When I ordered mine yesterday I did that comes on Friday they must have sold a lot.

Belkin 2m HDMI cable high speed with Ethernet and adjustable connector £2 Sainsbury's

Get dealGet deal

I'd like to know that it's £2 anywhere other than Sainsbury's Heaton park before I make the trip to donate to charity.


It's £2. Does what you need. You also give a home to an orphan.


If your tv had an internet connection, any wired device connected to it (console, sky box, blu-ray) could receive it too without a need for its own connection to your router. THATS THE THEORY However none of the hardware manufacturers adopted it’s potential (I think the terminology is Orphaned Tech). So it’s likely the only thing you havethat’s HDMI Ethernet capable, is the cable itself.


but one end goes into a display... i honestly cant see this being useful


Any device needing an HDMI cable can use HDMI with Ethernet cable as it is fully backwards compatible. This cable feature allows your internet-ready entertainment devices, from gaming consoles to Blu-ray Disc players and more, to share an internet connection without any need for a separate Ethernet cable.

Seems most home entertainment manufacturers abandoned the idea pretty early on. So your hdmi cable can do it, but it’s unlikely any of us have devices to make use of it. Which is a shame


Do all TVs with Ethernet allow it


the idea is that you have one device that's connected to your router (ie the TV). then everything connected to the TV (sky box, DVD/blue-ray player, playstation/xbox) gets it's internet via the TV. i think the idea was to declutter multiple wire cables and/or reduce wireless device connections. but the idea never caught on. reading up on it, it appears some folk who require v v v long HDMI cables (eg feeding to a Sky signal into a summer house in the back garden) plug the hdmi cable into an ethernet adapter for the necessary length, have another adapter at the other end to convert it back to HDMI, then plug is into the device.


Not even sure how it’s supposed to work

Sorry, I misread your original post. Yes you can use the Superhub as a router, albeit a very rubbish one. The Unifi already comes with a PoE injector. I don't think the switch you mentioned has the correct voltage for the Unifi. You could put your Superhub in modem mode & use this as a router - I believe it is compatible with the Unifi's PoE requirements.


A switch for the Poe ? Can’t I use the virgin hub as a route r


You put your Superhub into modem mode via the hub settings web page. The DLink you refer to is a switch, not a router and won't be suitable for this. You need a router, this is a good budget model.

1. The cloud controller is optional. You can set up the device using the Android or IOS apps. If you have a Raspberry Pi on the go you can set up the cloud controller on that but it will work fine without it. 2. My device came from broadbandbuyer with a cloverleaf + EU cable in the box and a separate cloverleaf + UK plug. My understanding is that it's illegal to sell anything electrical without a UK plug so not sure if LambdaTek would be obliged to send on an appropriate adapter if challenged.

Not at the moment maybe, but can you predict the future? :) Most things (The Internet of Things) want the Internet, whether it is actually necessary or not, who knows. My Solar panels want the Internet to say that they are working properly. My printers upgrade their firmware themselves which is a lot safer than DIY! I think. You may have a one of more wireless network, but how cluttered is it?. It is easy to extend it via wire or via powerline to wire adapters (no cabling needed) And anyway, with anything computer related, it's always better to think bigger, I think, buy a bigger hard disk, buy a bigger display, and more ports than you need now. My two cents
