what could possibly be better than this? Brilliant
on 16 December 2011
I bought this 16 Port switch to connect up my growing connected home, which was previously lashed together with two basic 4 port 10/100 mbps switches.
I have connected up a BT Home Hub v3 (also acts as a WiFi access point), Microsoft Windows Media Centre, Xbox360, Freesat Box with BBC iPlayer, Five additional Ethernet ports in other rooms, and a second Wifi Access Point (TP-Link TL-WA701ND 150Mbps Wireless Lite N Access Point ) = 10 Ports used in Total.
All plug and Play. As I have two wireless access points I just had to make the TP-Link access point get its ip address from the BT Home Hub's DHCP server so that ip addresses were not duplicated.
The TP-Link 16 Port Switch has a solid metal casing that gives it a feel of huge quality compared with the plastic casing on the TP-Link WiFi access point BUT both products work very well indeed and are priced very well.
