A excellent and very easy to set up Ethernet switch, great if you have Wi-Fi problems,
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wi-fi can be touch and go for many people; I myself suffer frequent drop outs in connection at the best of times and it is really infuriating when I'm merely trying to browse the web :(
In times where Wi-Fi isn't ideal the much more reliable option is using an wired Ethernet connection. Of course nobody wants to run about 80-feet of cable to the router downstairs just so you can connect on your computer upstairs, and this is where an Ethernet switch comes incredibly useful! In short an Ethernet switch allows you to connect more devices to your router/hub through Ethernet, giving you more slots to play with; just power it up, connect the included cable into your router and you can then plug in up to seven ethernet enabled devices you like. No passwords or complicated protocols to set-up either which is great!
I use this very switch to connect multiple devices at once; Smart TV, Xbox and my Pc can now all connect to the internet at once with minimal fuss, they all stream HD footage with no drop-outs which is fantastic! (If you wish to have the switch away from the router like in a bedroom or study, just make sure you also purchase a pair of power-line adapters (around £40-£50 for a decent set) so you have a internet connection running through your mains in order for the switch to work.)
If you want a constant and reliable internet connection, then an Ethernet switch is no doubt the way to go!
