Took a bit of trial and error, but it's working like a charm.

Summary: I had a bit of trouble getting this to work. I consider myself somewhat tech savvy and have installed many wireless routers in my time. This seemed like a foolproof installation. There is apparently very little to configure, if anything at all. It's all supposed to happen automatically.
Summary: I used this to move all my internet equipment into the closet. I ran cat5e to my computer and both televisions. Because I have at&t the cable boxes use a data cable and for some reason they will not work when plugged into a the switch.
Switch works great after tweak to computer hardware

Summary: At first, switch DL speed was very low, upload was good. After searching the TP-Link website, found a FAQ recommending setting computer NIC speed to Auto, I had set mine to '100 Full' many years ago based upon recommendations at that time.
Pros: Inexpensive and looks nice. Seems to work as promised after changing a computer NIC setting.
Cons: Lightweight and no mounting point or rubber feet, so easy to fall off of table.
Summary: I hooked this up to my computer, put the Ethernet cord into it, inserted the Ethernet cords for my cameras and other attachments, and it didn't work.. so I was lucky that I found a charger that works with this... which was NOT included...
Summary: Works Good, does what I need. That being said,I did not know until after I bought it. Through put speed varies, It's not FULL Duplex. Description states "up to full duplex data transfer". Which means with one device connected you may get wire speed.
Summary: I have purchased multiple orders of this small switch for locations where additional network drops are necessary. Typically these are ideal for user offices where they have multiple PCs or Network Printers that need access to the network.
