    Does this switch have internal voltage regulator? I see it is marked for 9v DC, I want to know if it can run on 12v DC. Thanks
    Eric S on Oct 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Since it comes with it's own power supply, I see no need to use a higher voltage power supply. I would think it's not a very good idea unless you want to create a blue smoke generator.
    Energy star rated? What is power usage?

    Where is the input jack? I only see the 8 output jacks? Thank you!
    John A on Jan 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: All switches today use any of the ports as an input. It auto senses which one and all the others become outputs. That is why it says it supports "seven downstream computers". They are bidirectional so all ports send and receive. Super simple just plug all jacks in and as long as one is the host you are good to go.
    What ethernet cables do I need with this switch to connect to TV's and Computers? They will be run through walls.
    Stephen H on Jan 12, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Normal Cat5 or Cat6 cabling with RJ-45 connectors are used, like any other consumer network switch.. I have my entire house wired with Cat6 and punchdown jacks in wall outlets and use a few small switches like this when I want to fan a single jack within a room.
    Is this switch non-blocking?
    John S on Feb 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: A switch can become blocking if its backplane can't support the full bandwidth of all its ports simultaneously. The specification section on the product page indicates the backplane bandwidth is 2x the number of ports on the switch. That means it can support every port both sending and receiving 1Gbps, simultaneously. By definition, that makes this switch non-blocking.
    Ok, so I'm having issues after just receiving and connecting this today. I had a 5 port tp link switch before, but wanted all my devices on the same ip address set, so I removed 3 devices from my modem and basically just swapped the two switches. When I connect the lan cable from router to switch, I have nothing at all, wired or wireless. I remove that cable and all is fine. I have super fast internet and a quality router (ASUS RT-AC3200). The only difference is the switching out of the two switches. Did I receive a lemon, or what could be the issue? Asus tech support couldn't help me.
    AARON O on Aug 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This is an unmanaged switch. This means it will forward traffic by MAC address and is not aware of IP addresses. One of the other 3 devices you removed must have been providing your devices with an IP address - a router, not a switch. From your description your Asus router does not have DHCP (IP address assignment) turned on. Either connect the router that had DHCP back to the network, or turn on DHCP on router. Your question is not exactly clear, it sounds like your devices are not being assigned an IP address so I based the answer on this.

    8-Port Ethernet Switch (Mountable)
    Very pleased with the performance and quality of this switch. Not apparent in the description is the ability to mount it on a vertical surface like a wall behind your cabinet using two screws that slide into slots on bottom of the switch.

    Great little switch
    it is about a third smaller than the D-link it replaced which was only a 5 port. It is about 1 inch wider than the 8 ports and very small, about the size of 2 packs of cigarrete. Works great. The lights do tell you tour link spped but only the differnce between 10Mbps and 100/1000Mbps. since there is no 10 anymore would be nice if it was one color for 100 and another for 1GBPS

    PROS: Small and great price

    CONS: Diagnostic lighting is very minimal.

    Works as Advertised
    What can you say? Twenty bucks for an 8-port gigabit switch? Are you kidding?
    I've had one of these running at a customer's office for 8 months. It works perfectly. A Dell PowerEdge server, 2 Dell workstations, 2 iMacs, 1 HP printer and a Netgear router and this little switch doesn't miss a beat. I installed it "temporarily" after their $300 Cisco 200 series switch died and it works so well I've had no reason to replace it. What a bargain.

    PROS: 8 Gigabit ports for $20!
    16 Gb of headspace

    CONS: Won't win any beauty contests.
    "Wall wart" power supply

    Simple, Bright
    It doesn't get much simpler. A very low cost switch. Better deal than some other brand FOUR port switches.

    PROS: Smallest possible size. Light. Super bright orange LEDs. I could put this thing behind some fake logs in the fireplace and it would look like live fire.

    CONS: Link LEDs are single color. Orange. You just know there's a link. They blink for traffic. You can't see the speed, or half/full duplex. You just have to hope you got the highest possible speed. I know I wouldn't get a managed switch at this price, but some indication of the type of link could have been done with a tri-color LED for not much more cost. If it could have been just another half inch wide, the power connector could have been in the rear. Being on the side, it limits what you can put next to it on your shelf.

    Tiny switch, does what it should
    Very small, fast switch that works like it should - 8 ports on such a small footprint is impressive. The ONLY negative that I have for this is the design of the power jack - it is located on the side of the switch. Due to making it such a small switch, I can somewhat understand this as this allows only the back of the switch to be populated with the 8 gigabit ports. I would recommend a redesign using a 90 degree plug so that the power cable can at least run neatly along the side rather than jutting straight out of the side. This would provide a much sleeker design.

    8-Port 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Switch
    Received in just a few days then plugged it in and ran the cables. Works great

    PROS: Small and easy to place

    CONS: non

    Works like a switch, but better, is cheaper
    I like the size of this switch, it can be hidden well and doesn't take up half the desktop.
    Other than that it works, and keeps on working. haven't had any trouble, hooked it up and it went.

    PROS: Works well, inexpensive, and small.

    CONS: none

    Decent Switch and Great Price
    I needed extra ports but did not want to get a 16 port switch. So, this was a perfect, very usable additional switch.

    It works!
    Well, as with all M P stuff its reasonable priced and works great! TY MP! I am a loyal customer because the price and service and products are great.

    PROS: Plug and play
    It works!
    Price is great.

    CONS: None yet.

    Decent, Very Small Switch
    The specs are nice for this switch - especially the backplane bandwidth. As with all modern switches, it's "plug & play" - auto-sensing speed and up/down links.

    Ah, the LEDs..... as others have stated, they do not differentiate 100Mbps and 1000Mbps links. I can't speak for 10Mbps because I haven't had a device of that speed for a very, very long time. My additional comment about the LEDs is that they are bright. Very bright. I bought this to use with my home theater system in which a new component does have gigabit Enet, but the LEDs are so bright that I may have to rethink that application. I'd like to see Monoprice note these things in the item description.

    The documentation brochure is not device specific. Fortunately, a device such as this usually doesn't require much study.
