Amazon is offering the TP-Link 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch at a reduced price. The online behemoth is attempting to bring the ability to connect multiple devices to a router to all by offering this gigabit Ethernet switch with a moderate discount, bringing the price down to just $12.99.

Many households and offices are built on the fact that wireless networks are generally quite good and reliable these days. Therefore, those properties rely on having a single router in place and connecting multiple devices to it via the wireless network that it broadcasts. With that said, there is definitely a case to be made for physically wired connections via Ethernet and this TP-Link product makes that whole experience a lot more versatile by giving you the ability to connect a lot more devices to your router via a physical cable than you normally would be able to.

If your existing router has the ability to take 3 wired connections onboard, then you are now going to be able to have 8 connections available as this product exposes another 5 ports. It makes it the perfect solution for those who want to add gaming consoles, desktop computers, Freeview DVR boxes, or even home automation hubs to the internet via a physical connection rather than relying on the WiFi network for stability. This is generally the right option to use for devices which not only need stability but which also need to receive the maximum bandwidth and speed possible and is definitely a great option for PlayStations and Xboxes.

The accessory is entirely plug-and-play, which means that there is very little work to getting up and running. It is also built in a reliable and sturdy metal case which screams quality. It offers traffic optimization for sensitive traffic such as voice and video and offers up to 84% in power-savings. The device also automatically adjusts power consumption according to the length of the cable and the link status, making this an extremely versatile piece of equipment which actually works on your behalf in the background to get the best possible experience.

The hardware usually sells for around the $20 mark so it makes financial sense to grab it now while you can.
