Hi guys, was looking at this as i need to ethernet up both my PC and PS4:

 

 

 

http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=NETTPL0422&name=TP-Link-PowerLine-TL-WPA4220KIT-500Mbps-Starter-Ki

 

 

 

Just wondering, how does this work cosnidering one cable is plugged into router and 2 come out the other end? Do both devices on the other end get separate internal IP addresses?

 

 

 

Apologies if this is a silly question.

It a router - you'll have two separate IPs

The Wifi/two port end has routing/switching ability just like a hardwired/cabled switch/wifi access device - the limiting factor is the back haul via the power cabling back to your main router vs a cable

Thank you, makes sense :)

 

 

 

Cheers all - going to pick one up this weekend. WIFI signal is too weak this far away from modem so i think this will be a good solution.

nakedmolerat: It a router - you'll have two separate IPs

 

 

 

umm... no it is not a router in any shape or form it has no ability to route packets from one network to another

 

It is a 4 way switch; 1 port is EOP, 1for Wifi AP, and the other 2 for wired





 The views expressed by me are not necessarily those of my employer

+1 hyperman is correct. 

 

That unit is not a router at all. Just a dumb ethernet switch.
