  • Just what I needed for more devices!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - June 10, 2020

    I originally bought a Moca Adapter for my PS4 because I was sick of having to deal with Wi-Fi issues (laggy game play, videos buffering all the time and frequent loss of my Wi-Fi signal). So, the Moca Adaptor I purchased worked perfectly but it only had one ethernet port on it for my PS4. I wanted my laptop and Smart TV to be connected to the internet via ethernet cable and not Wi-Fi. So, I purchased this NG internet switch along with extra ethernet cable for each device. Now my PS4. Dell laptop and Sony Smart TV are connected to the internet with no Wi-Fi issues. Game Play, Streaming videos been stress free. Definitely pick one up.

  • Excellent Product and easy to use

    This is a no brainer. If it is on sale buy one cause you will always need the extra ports especially if you have a router/modem combo with 2 ethernet ports. It is a great way to expand your device capacity and give you flexibility to split to other devices and location. It is pretty much WYSIWYG! 1. Find a spot where you want to have switch. 2.Plug the switch into power outlet. 3.Plug in your cable from router. 4.Plus in cable to devices. 5. Enjoy surfing or sharing your data. Easy Peasy! DLink has a great reputation. The little guy is built like a tank. You can pretty much pull it out of the box have it up and running in 5 minutes!!

  • Plug everything in and forget about it
    Verified BuyerReviewed by timmo85 - January 25, 2021

    Easy as pie. Plug in your cables anywhere, plug the switch into an outlet, and you are on your way. I cannot understand any of the negative reviews. This product does exactly what one would expect it to do, and the price is very reasonable. You can use crossover cables, Cat 5, Cat 5e, Cat6, or mix and match, and it works it all out. My connection passes through another Netgear switch (with many more ports) before connecting to my router, and I have numerous devices connected to my internet. But see my speeds in the attached photo. No complaints about this switch at all.

  • One switch, four devices.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TuffGunn - July 17, 2021

    Works like a charm. All I needed was to connect this switch to the router, then I was able to connect for other devices (TV, PS4, Switch, sound bar, PC).

  • wired network expansion made easy.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Michael - May 21, 2021

    Worked as expected and reduced the bottle neck on my home network nicely. Keep in mind that this works as a fanout of a home network router. So, I took the ethernet output port of my cable modem and placed it in one of the ports on this switch. I then placed the rest of my wired ports in the remaining ports of the switch. The cable modem's internal router handled the DHCP duties and managed the network both with in my wireless domain and this wired domain. it was real easy. No network experience required. Just connect one port to your modem/router and the rest to your PCs, printers, TVs or whatever you want to connect via a ethernet cable.
