8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (TPE-8PTGIGSWIT2)

8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (TPE-8PTGIGSWIT2)
Need a few extra ethernet ports? Get yourself a high quality 8-port gigabit ethernet switch with 16Gbps backplane. With this switch there is no proprietary software required. Just plug in the power, optionally connect it to a router, and connect your devices.

This unmanaged desktop gigabit switch is especially designed for SOHO, student dormitories, and small enterprise users. It has support for store-and-forward function to make sure that packets are sent to each port effectively.

Plug and play capability simplifies installation. In addition, it supports MAC address auto-learning and aging. With its easy configuration, quick data transfer rates, and high level of stability, this switch is the ideal choice for sharing a small business network.

See our example diagram on connecting a switch (there is nothing to install or configure, just connect and go). You can also chain multiple of our mini wireless routers together with a switch such that you can have two networks. One where your internet activity is viable to your ISP and a web site knows where you are coming from (this may be needed to purchasing goods online or access some sites) while also another where all your traffic is passed through our privacy friendly PenguinVPN service. Switching between VPN and non-VPN modes is as easy as switching wireless access points. See our chaining diagram here for this setup.

Have you ever thought about the quality of your ethernet cables? Often devices ship with lower quality cables and this can lead to connectivity problems down the road. Consider an upgrade and save yourself the trouble of diagnosing connectivity issues.

If you're purchasing an Ethernet Switch please select the associated power adapter for your region (we ship to countries with different power outlets). If no switch is selected no Ethernet Switch Power Adapter will be shipped.
