If you have limited Ethernet ports available, this simple Network Switch will allow you to expand one port into four. This may be useful when connecting the Clever Logger gateway to the internet.
What do you do if you have too many electrical appliances and not enough power points? You grab a power board, and turn one socket into many.
So what do you do when you have more devices than Ethernet ports? You grab a network switch.
Sometimes it can be hard to find a working Ethernet port close to the fridge you are trying to monitor to plug the gateway into.
If you have one working connection that is currently in use on a computer or printer, you can turn this into four connections by using our network switch.
Pull the Ethernet cable out of the current device and plug it into one of the ports on the switch.
Then you can run a cable from the switch back to that device, and also cables from the switch to three other devices, including the gateway.

If the gateway works plugged directly into the wall port, then it will most likely work running through the switch.
These are very simple switches, so there is nothing much to do in the way of configuration – just plug it in and away you go.
