Review and Buying Guide of NEWLink 5 Port 10/100 Ethernet Switch

Modest, compact and lightweight size helps make is effortless to match on to your desk or even attach to your wall. Functions great with 1 or 4 desktops hooked up. Does not surface to lessen network pace and lets desktops to fall in and out without influencing the general performance of the other individuals. Merely plug it in and it is effective great from working day one. If you want a just way of making far more ethernet ports it is a incredibly ‘idiot proof’ resolution. I would recommend you purchase a quick ethernet cable to join the machine to your wall plug nevertheless any duration cable can be made use of. The machine does not arrive with a plug to join it to your ethernet wall socket so it could be worthwhile acquiring an excess one particular when you obtain it. Other than that it is a good benefit merchandise.

Fantastic piece of kit, works completely, would invest in again.

I purchased this to connect a nas to a homeplug network connection. It just is effective suitable out of the box – nothing at all to do other than plug it in. Desire i could say the exact same about the nas, but which is an additional assessment -).

Comments from buyers

“Simple and effective, Good price and works well, Good for the price.”

Wonderful worth – just plug in and forget about it. I have lately been frustrated, as i seem to have acquired a lot more community products than i experienced community connections. This affordable small box has solved my problems. Plug in the energy cord and plug in the ethernet potential customers and neglect about it. It states it has 5 ports, but just one is for the ‘from the modem-router’ direct, so in reality you are in a position to have 4 extra connections not 5. Plug the ‘from modem’ guide into any of the ports as it immediately detects the upstream information and absent you go. You cannot truly go completely wrong for the value. I’ve only experienced for a short time, so are unable to comment on reliability, but i suspect it’s not likely to crack down before long.

Additional ports for peace of brain. Ive obtained four computer system,s in the property, two bt vision containers, a sky hd box, and a ps3, i have obtained them all related via my bt router into a few of these magnificent gadgets (employed them for about 3 a long time now) to distribute the feed all all-around the dwelling, they operate flawlessly, with no lagging in pace, young ones use ‘call of duty’ in a single place bt vision in a different and two personal computer,s in the other rooms devoid of this sort of as a blip in visible velocity reduction, and dont be fooled if my young ones cant download or use the net etc i would be notified in no unsure phrases, i can suggest these to anyone who requirements extra ports.

Does the task cheaply and only. . Does exactly what it suggests on the tin. Simple to set up (just plug the power and patch cables in and away you go) and appears to be to perform nicely. Only criticism is that it is very really gentle so will will need anchoring down if you want it to sit on a desk but if (like most switches) it will be out of sight sitting down on prime of a pile of cables this will not likely subject.

    This is perfect for either adding ports or splitting from one cable. This is perfect for either adding ports or splitting from one cable. If you have one erthenet cable to one device some distance away and need to add another device this is the kit to buy. I had one cable running to my satellite box and required another to apple tv. This box did the trick, just plug and play with no configuration. May have to add network password if not already keyed in. If you are already using apple tv on wifi, it will connect automatically to the erthenet connection. Do not waste your money on a splitter to add another device to a one cable supply. You will need 2 rj45s and 4 erthenet cables which will cost almost as much as the switch. Where you already have a cable to one device, the existing cable is plugged into the switch and the remaining ports used for any additional devices.

    Ideal for new smart tv system. Decided to replace a 10 year old analogue nad surround system to support new smart tv and blu-ray products. Saw this on virtual 1/2 price offer on amazon and checked the reviews before purchasing. But the switch integrated perfectly with the new amp, samsung smart tv 46es700 and blu-ray player bd-e6100. Little bit of trial and error fiddling around with the pairing of the various units. Originally it was causing the intnal network to ‘drop’ internet connectivity, but once i established that the was no issue with the broadband connection generally i was able to address the problem internally. Now all devices are synched up and working brilliantly.

        Newlink 5 port 10/100 ethernet switch,black. This is my second newlink switch that i have on my home network and this one is as goo as the first one. I bought this to connect my tv and the humax box both requiring an eithernet connection. It works like a charm straight out of the box.I think it is better than the usb dongle and certainly more cost effective.

    Worked well but the advice of company cdl micro (becky) before purchasing was so valuable. I appreciated their time and effort.

      Got this switch to enable me to add additional network devices as my router had only one port available. This gave me 3 additional ports and slightly faster broadband speed. Well satisfied with this purchase.

      Small, compact and lightweight size makes is easy to fit onto your desk or even attach to your wall. Works great with 1 or 4 computers attached. Does not appear to reduce network speed and allows computers to drop in and out without affecting the performance of the others. Simply plug it in and it works great from day 1. If you want a simply way of creating more ethernet ports it is a very ‘idiot proof’ solution. I would suggest you buy a short ethernet cable to connect the device to your wall plug however any length cable can be used. The device does not come with a plug to connect it to your ethernet wall socket so it may be worthwhile buying an extra one when you purchase it. Other than that it is a good value product.

    Great value – just plug in and forget about it. I have recently been frustrated, as i seem to have acquired more network devices than i had network connections. This cheap little box has solved my problems. Plug in the power cord and plug in the ethernet leads and forget about it. It says it has 5 ports, but one is for the ‘from the modem-router’ lead, so in reality you are able to have 4 more connections not 5. Plug the ‘from modem’ lead into any of the ports as it automatically detects the upstream data and away you go. You can’t really go wrong for the price. I’ve only had for a short time, so can’t comment on reliability, but i suspect it’s not going to break down soon.
