Summary: I wanted to take my single network outlet via an RJ45 cable coming from a network power adaptor and expand it to 3 network cables. I was amazed to see that I could do this for just over £10. Even more amazing was the ease of doing it. Unplug the RJ45 cable from my PC and plug it into any inlet on the D-Link, then I had three short RJ45 cables (left over from various modems supplied free over the years) I plugged all 3 in and ran one to my Smart TV, one to my Blu-Ray and...
Summary: Just an update on the other reviews mine also shipped in German packaging and initially came with a continental plug and no adaptor. I contact Amazon who shipped me out a complete replacement (Which was opened to check it has the correct plug). The plug is the same unit with a UK converter fixed on it, thereby it sticks out a bit which could cause issues and doesn't look very neat.
Summary: This product was shipped from Germany and the box contained an EU plug, now I have to find an adaptor or alternative power cable. All unnecessary hassle for a product ordered through Amazon UK to a UK address, and where the product description/specification gave no indication that an EU plug was part of the package.
Summary: I needed to extend my home network so that I could work from home. Although my work laptop has wifi, the signal wasn't great in my study - so as I already had an ethernet power adapter to the study, I purchased this switch to add more ports ot the power adapter. It works a treat - I had it installed and working within 15 minutes of the postman ringing the bell! It couldn't have been easier! Well deserved 5 stars.
Summary: The switch does what it says on the box, except uk-go shipped me a French unit, albeit with a UK plug adapter, which is not exactly clearly spelled out in the advert. The enclosed CD has all language support on, but the quick start guide, and indeed Le Boite, are (obviously) in French.
Summary: It just works, which is what you want from a switch like this. What else can I say? Plug it in, connect the wires, and your computers will talk to each other (caveat being as long as you've set them up properly!).
Summary: I opened the box, plugged the cables in, turned the power on and it worked straight away. Without doubt the best piece of kit I have purchased so easy and simple, if only everything in life were this easy.
