Isn't the eci telecom a modem and router? Link here. Could I just attach this to that? Or you think the BT smat hub all in one solution would be better? EDIT: Heard the BT home hub is not very good


No No, you will still need a modem & router


Right my Time Capsule just broke. I have the old BT fibre modem non wireless router eci telecom one. But would like an all in one solution! Does this have a fibre modem in it or do you need to connect it up to it? Most modern routers like the BT smart hub is fibre and wireless built in which I prefer but this looks neat? Any ideads? Many thanks


nice rack


TBH one of the reasons I posted this was to get comments from people who know more about these things than I do! I have learned a lot!

Have you ever seen a managed gigabit switch for under £20 ? (new, not s/h used from ebay )


Unmanaged. Would have bought if smart


The 24 port at £59.99 looks great value. The lowest Amazon price ever according to the camels.


Still cheap but not the bargain they'd have you believe.

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


Linksys is better for you, don't listen to op 8)


this or the linksys which was posted yesterday? dont really need 8 ports


Great basic switches -- plug and play and forget its there. Great value

Anyone know of a cheap good POE switch.


What's the benefit of this over the TP-Link SF1016DS for £35? EDIT: That's 10/100 and not gigabit, that explains it!

I presume you mean a Hub that supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 10Gbs as Type C is the connector type and has no bearing on speed. Not many devices support 10Gbs USB anyway although that will increase a lot now that Intel have finally integrated it into their chipsets.

Heat added. Bought one :) Sure, it's not gigabit. It's not super fancy. But it'll be great for me :)


Fair enough. I still reckon it's a false economy to buy such antiquated technology, even if it would do the job.


The 3 things I listed do not have WiFi on them. They all need hard wired to a network connection.


I guess, but most of that stuff has WiFi doesn't it? I'd use WiFi for those devices, with the benefit of less cable

I use a cheap Tenda one I bought years ago on my desk and put this one in the attic for my Server/Raspberry pi. Out of sight out of mind aha


Really? I have a 16 port Netgear switch which has been going strong for many years. Plus the switch comes with 3 year warranty out of the box from Netgear themselves


Yeah, I have the same problem. I am thinking of either put two screws in the bottom of my desk and mounting it using the mount holes on the bottom or using 3m adhesive.


I have this one. it's great apart from it's rubbish on a desk because the power cable goes in the back and cat5 comes out the front. It looks so messy.

Plug it in, connect your WiFi to it and go to (if setting up 1st time, the website loads up itself). Then you just follow on-screen instruction - scan for networks, choose yours, change extended WiFi name and set password (you can keep router password as well). Voilà, all done.


+1 I have this and it’s a one button push on the extender and another on your router to connect. It even has its own app so you can customise it. You can even turn the lights out on it. I have it on my landing and works great as a night light. Never dropped connection once and had it about a year.


Got one and works well. Use it to bridge gap from router to garden by plugging in end of house.


Both choose one or the other I have it and it works fine but if you have a rubbish unreliable router that drops signal even when your near it don’t bother with this


Have this and it’s terrible. Loses connection all the time for some reason. Have reset it to factory settings too but still doesn’t help. Looking into mesh WiFi now or the Uniquiti APs.

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?


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.


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)


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


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 :-)


I love how '(No Configuration Required)' is put in the title as if it's a selling point. I think the people who are in the market for a switch like this know what 'unmanaged' means and would probably describe it as "configuration not possible".


Sorry but It's Power Over Ethernet (angel) Basically your network switch supplies low voltage power to the device over the Ethernet cable, which means you don't need a separate power supply next to the device you are installing.Saves a lot of time and hassle when fitting CCTV etc as you only need to run one cable and not worry about having power nearby. It is a great innovation, just need the price of equipment to start dropping. PoE outputs about 15w per port and PoE+ about 30w per port.


Ubiquiti seem to use PoE injectors rated at 12w or 24w depending on the model and some come with them already. This switch outputs 15.4w max per port so depends on your model version of the Ubiquiti. If it's 24w then you would need a PoE+ switch capable of outputting 30w per port to power it or a separate PoE injector. This switch has 8 Ports PoE+ but is twice the price.


Unfortunately my Ubiquiti isn't PoE standard. It requires more power. Look for 802.3af PoE compliant in your Ubiquiti technical spec.


I remember paying about £35 for mines. Seems to have gone up in price.

Very good router. Lowest price it has ever been new is £99 so a very decent price if you’re looking for a router with plenty of oomph without breaking the bank.

Excellent heat added!! if you guys dont want to wait for few days with amazin at 99.99, get it from ebuyer for same price.


This over MESH?


It doesn't. You need the 3200 version for that. I don't care at the moment.


so this doesn't have MU-MIMO but does that really matter?


Most likely interference. The BT hub isn’t as smart as it says it is, I had a similar issue solved by simply changing the channel in the hub menu manually. Type 192.168.l.254 into a browser and use login info on the back of the router. If you have an Iphone the Apple airport utitility app has a nifty simple trick of checking channels on nearby networks if you have the same channel as one of them it could be the issue. You want to choose a channel that you don’t see as often (or preferably at all) in the list to lessen any interference. There are lots of other ways of checking nearby channels. You may have already tried this step. Hope this helps. Edit: If this doesn’t work then I recommend a full factory reset and if no joy it is probably a hardware issue.

Wow how did i not no this....this leads on to more questions though, where does it get the internet from initially then? (skeptical) i think i should just youtube it (embarrassed)


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.


How does it manage picture and internet? Im intrigued (skeptical)

Add-on Item, dispatched with qualifying orders of £20 or more This item is available because of the Add-on programme

Length specs are the same for each


But these are CAT6.


They’d be too long for me - I like 0.25m in my patch panel. Might be worth pointing out that the spec for CAT5e requires minimum 1m cable lengths between active devices though, so these should only be used for patching rather than directly connecting devices. Whether it’ll actually result in any problems is another matter though...

Text book answer buddy. Thing is a NARCISSIST is never never ever WRONG. LOL


Ok buddy, have it your way.


I made three points. 1 - A 100mbps port will only be a bottleneck if you have devices that need to run faster than 100mbps 2 - A 100mpbs port will not restrict transfer speeds wireless-to-wireless (as someone else claimed) 3 - Most people do not have NAS devices on their network You only ever disagreed with point 3, which you and I can neither prove nor disprove without actual stats of NAS usage. If you only want to disagree with that, that was always fine with me. For some reason you tried to make a technical argument about points 1 and 2, despite me being entirely correct about those things.

Have been watching these for a while as needed an extra few - they’ve just dropped down from £70-80

Your mileage will definitely vary. This is just now. 40mbps download, 10mbps upload, using these ones purchased back in August 2016 (my setup - router downstairs, to mains, to upstairs, another router, then PC/server/etc). I play without problems and max download speeds without ping issues or throttles (as you can see there, 6ms ping to the test server, around 1/2ms ping to the sky box (in comparison, under 1ms ping to the server connected also upstairs). Definitely worth a go, if your power lines support it. Otherwise you may have problems (as I had on a previous address). Also, they are not interchangeable with other power line systems as these are, technically, encrypted. You'll simply add even more noise to the system although I didn't spend much time on this. This link here may be worth a read.


My recent experience. I purchased another pack of two and couldn't get them to synch with the existing ones.Spent an hour on the phone with Netgear support. No joy. Eventually told the new ones were faulty but honestly they worked perfectly on their own.


Same here. But just to correct some of the information in here, the advertised speed is in half-duplex (one way), for full duplex (what you need) you will get half the advertised speed, as a maximum. With respect to pings and general performance, tueyre as good as your wiring (its not all equal) and a new house is just as likely to have poor quality cabling as an older house - copper costs money. If they're on the same stretch as a noisy demanding appliance it's likely to interfere with your performance. Best way to troubleshoot is literally unplug every appliance and device plugged in and see if your wiring is the real cause, more likely a microwave, white goods or cheapo Chinese POS creating noise.


I would recommend trying the homeplug first, in my experience I have not received such high ping times and work just fine for gaming, better than if you were using wifi only or wifi with repeater.


Powerline is some kind of standard so they can be mixed and matched between different manufacturers. Not completely sure but I guess they would run at the speed of the slowest device. Tbh that's guesswork.
