Tplink has excellent support and theres enough online documentation out there that you should have no problem getting questions answered that may arise. I've always had good good luck with tp-link products.
I mean it is pretty self explanatory plug it between a end device (computer/ gamesystem etc) and an ACTIVE ROUTER that you have either assigned static IPs of the end devices or has DHCP active. This does not assign anything. I saw some people rate it 1 star because they connected it from a modem to other devices.. most modems are bridge adapters from the cable provider coaxial to an actual router. Some companies like comcast have dual purpose modem routers but bottom line is you need a switch to add connections to a router assigning IPs not to connect from a raw modem signal to multiple devices that have no IPs assigned. I thought this was somewhat common sense seeing as mainly tech savvy related people buy network switches but alas it still needs to be said.
I am writing this review under having purchased the 5 port switch but as I have multiple devices and game systems in the viscinity on a upstairs floor, I am seeing the need to get a 8port switch to extend connectivity. I would advise against crossing switches (1 switch connecting to another switch for more ports) and suggest just getting a larger port unit. Crossing switches has a tendency to result in mismanaged bandwidth unless it is managed through a web portal which these are not. Chose these over the netgear ones due to design and history I have with it.
Again the main issue people are having is not realizing they did not purchase a gigabit switch.. fast ethernet version is cheap for a reason. It is an antique at this point and is not worth the few dollars discount over a full gigabit speed switch.
With the incoming arrival of my first baby, we had a slew of new devices that only connected to Wi-Fi (baby video monitors, sensors, doorbells, and much more). The problem is the Wi-Fi only really works well in half the house. I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase the EERO mesh network, which gives me the full speed capacity of what I am paying for via my ISP throughout my entire house. Seriously we had to disconnect our phones when on the opposite end of the house as little/no connection.
The problem is when we plugged in the EERO node into my router it freaked out and caused a whole slew of issues. The issue is the ISP installed the router in the living room, which works out since I have several devices that need to be hard-wired into the network (PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV, etc), so I used the router as a switch as well for those devices. With the EERO plugged into the Spectrum router chaos ensured, all the nodes fought for supremacy, causing havoc on my network. The issue was fixed when I plugged the EERO directly into the cable modem and removed the spectrum modem from my network.
The good news is my Wi-Fi issues were resolved, but the bad news is I only had one spare unmanaged switch and it was only 10/100. This is irritating because everything in my house is at least a GB switch. So, I plugged in my old switch while looking for a new one online. I found this switch and I have been extremely happy with the performance the past week. It is truly plug-in-play as I took my old switch off, plugged this one in, and everything was back in action at the higher speeds. For the first time ever, I have great speeds on both LAN and Wi-Fi. There has been no speed denigration and I have exactly what I should on any PC I plug into my network doing a speed test.
I love how cheap this switch was as only a few years ago a switch like this would have cost over $100 if that. The problem is you get what you pay for in this switch. It is missing a few things that come in more expensive switches on the market, but for $20 bucks who can complain.

I have no deadspots anywhere and this switch has ZERO conflicts when hardwired into my solar equipment. I use Cat6 cable for everything.

The body is light plastic and you can easily mount it using the built in mount points or it is also possible to stick Velcro on for a movable mounting solution.
This is an entry level model, it does not have any management or qos features.

I learned about this solution after trailing through pages of information about managed/unmanaged Ethernet Switches, Routers and lots of complicated instructions about how to convert a Router/Modem into Modem only. My head reeling with all this information I went shopping on Amazon for a solution. Most devices I looked at, I didn't really understand what they did exactly, and seemed to cost a fortune.
Then I found this! Oh, Joy! Not only is this cheap, it does exactly what I need. I connected all my smart Home Hubs, my Printer and my PC and used the existing ethernet cable from the Modem/Router to connect to the TP-Link. Took 5 mins. I did have to spend the next 20 mins "reminding" my Smart Hubs to connect to my network, but that wasn't hard. Everything works great and I now have 3 spare Ports for future use. So if you have the same problem as I did then this is the solution you are looking for.
Installation couldn't get any easier. Power the switch, cross connect it with your router with an ethernet cable and then plug devices into the remaining open ports. Done.
While it doesn't offer any of the sophisticated capabilities that an IT professional might desire... this just plain works. Recommended.
I wanted an Ethernet Switch to give additional ports to my Sky Q router (it only has two). As there are now a lot of smart devices in my home I decided to connect all the items on my TV stand to this switch rather than have them all rely on WiFi, competing with other devices further away.
To use this, simply connect the device to power, run a cable from one Ethernet port to the router, and then connect all the other Ethernet devices to the Switch. Everything will then run as if it were connected to one hub. Simple!
It’s performed reliably since they day it was installed so I’m very happy with this purchase.
This is as plug and play as you can get, link one port on this device to one port on the router and job done.
As for build quality, it is plastic and well made. Yes there are metal ones but to be fair it does not get warm to the touch so see no point in paying extra for metal casing.
One thing i know about TPLINK products they are fantastic value and well built, would always take their products over other brands like netgear and dlink as they have never let me down in the past
This kind of device seemed to be just the thing I needed.
Employing the old maxim that you should go to the highest speed, or memory capacity, you can afford was also a factor in my choice.
Parcelled well the package arrived after a very minimal delay which was literally a day or two.

Now the main question? Does it it work as described?
Yes is the answer to this question, it is just simply plug and play!
No software required.
So if you're hubs Ethernet ports are full and you need to add even more devices to your home or office hub via Ethernet cables this bit of tech will do the job.
For those who might ask, mine is connected to a Sky home hub, but as it's a stand alone device and requires simply plug and use installation then connectivity to any hub shouldn't be a problem.
Although it's a plastic body, I've been keeping an eye on temperatures and it hasn't been getting anywhere near hot, so can't see this being an issue.
I don't think there's much else to say about this - nice and cheap, but highly effective !
The only criticism, this model of TP-LINK TL-SG1008D 8-Ports Gigabit Desktop Ethernet Switch, does, does not have any LED port indication activity in front of the switch, and in order to see the state of the ports, one must look at the back of the switch. There is one LED in front of the switch and that is the power indicator.
This model of the switch classed as the energy saving device (Green Ethernet technology saves the power up to 80%) and that could be the reason for not having any LED port indication activity in front of the switch. All in all, this device is highly recommended.
This switch enables me to connect the router to a port, then up to 4 computers to ports and connect them all the the internet. Unfortunately, the connection speed is not shared evenly between the computers accessing the internet so one persons speed will be reduced if 2 are both using high bandwidth at the same time - my normally 70mbps was split between my brother and me so he got 55mbps and I got 15mbps when running a speed test on both computers. However, when using just 1 computer I am able to fully saturate my 70mbps download and 20mpbs upload connection provided by my isp, taking the switch out of the loop and using a direct Ethernet makes no noticeable difference to the speed.
The switch runs cool, I can only feel a very slight warmth in the middle when I rest my hand on top and has usage LED's so I can see when the connection is idling or is in use by the rate of flashing :p
Overall I highly recommend this switch to anyone who wants to network computers or connect multiple computers to the internet at once with only a single slot on the router.
Set-up is V simple, plug in power and connect up the feed to the ethernet switch in this case its from our Router but have an other by the TV connected to a tp-link Ethernet Powerline set-up.
No set-up required once Ethernet traffic is on the switch all other devices can connect to the network.
So you have one Master In (can be any port but I like to use Port 1), then you have 7 open sockets to connect further devices to !
I had been using WiFi but it was getting congested when transferring large files (100GB +) between my work machines not to mention the slow transfer speeds.
This little switch allows full 1GBPS between my working machines and saved the need to run long cables to each machine from my 4G router in the loft.
The actual unit is very sleek and easy to use. Plug in the power supply and Eth cables.. job done.
