5.0 out of 5 stars Magic Little Box, 10 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1005D Five Port 10/100 Mbps Unmanaged Desktop Switch (Personal Computers)
Firstly, a lot of reviews complain saying that it comes with a European plug, I have had no such qualms, I bought two of these and they came with a UK transformer so no problem there. It worked instantaneously, I plugged the surprisingly small unit in (its about the size of a DS lite) and it powered up in seconds and connects both my laptop and my freesat HD box to the internet. The only downside is that it has a very cheap plastic feel to it, however, given the extraordinary price this is a very minor problem. Not enough to loose a star.
What more can I say, it has five Ethernet ports so I can connect four devices to the main router from it. They all work swimmingly. Does what it says on the tin

I would recommend this to anyone, it has worked perfectly for me and if it doesn't work for you then you have only lost a negligible amount of money

I made that review 10 months ago and they both still work perfectly, very dependable very reliable very cheap

Will this product work with the Virgin Media Super Hub?

Thanks very much in advance.

yes it will, it should work with almost any Ethernet item, they are great little things

A bit confused - I have an ethernet port in my wall providing me with a single internet connection. Can I attach this to that port, then plug in ethernet cables from my laptop and pc etc. and gain internet on both at the same time? Thanks.

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Oct 2011 23:30:36 BDT
Yes you should be able to do that

I have a pair of TP-Link Powerline adapters, one has cable from router plugged in and the other has TV plugged in. If I connect this switch to the TP Link at the rear of the TV, will I be able to connect TV, Blu-Ray & PS3 to it and run all 3 at the same time (if I wanted to)?

Hi - You should be able to attach any ethernet switch to the other end (not router end) of your Powerline plug and then the other free slots can be used for TV, PS3, BluRay etc

hi, i have an Ethernet cable that goes from the modem in the front room through the wall then into the back of my computer to provide the internet in my house. what i would like to know is if i buy this product would i be able to plug in the Ethernet cable that comes through the wall into the TP-Link, then plug in a second Ethernet cable from the TP-Link to the back of my computer, then a third Ethernet cable from the TP-Link to my xbox 360 would i be able to still provide the internet to my computer and be able to use xbox live on my xbox 360?

Hi

Yes I think you can, if I have understood you correctly. I have my modem/router (O2 broadband) in the utility room and via a long Ethernet cable through the wall into my TP-Link in the lounge. Then I plug in my internet TV, an IP security camera and the Sky+ box to the TP-Link. Just think of it like a 4 bar electric extension plug. You can plug in your TV, DVD, Playstation etc Remember out of the 4 Ethernet ports, 1 needs to be the "in" from your router then just plug in your xbox, PC and have a spare port for something else. Hope that helps.

hi
yes that does help thank you.
this may sound like a stupid question but would using the TP-Link affect my internet and pc security?

In reply to an earlier post on 29 Jun 2012 14:13:40 BDT
Hi - not a stupid question unless you know the answer :-)

It won't make your PC any more vulnerable than the existing ethernet cable. It just helps transfer the data between your PC, modem and the outside world (ISP). It's still up to your modem / router or PC to have a firewall set up and/or virus protection.
