Model: TL-SG105  
Hardware Version: V6
Firmware Version: no idea

Hello:

 

I have an ADSL router (telco provided) with 10/100 ports.

 

To this router I connect three things:

 

1. a box running Devuan Linux with an on-board GbE LAN network adapter.

2. a netbook running Devuan Linux with an on-board 10/100 network adapter.

3. a 'My Book Live' single drive NAS running OpenWRT with an on-board GbE LAN network adapter.

 

As things stand, rsync between the box and the NAS takes ages as everything goes through the router.

ie: there is a 10/100M bottleneck between the box and the NAS, both of which can work at Gb speeds.

 

I was thinking about getting the TL-SG105 Gb switch to plug in box+netbook+NAS+whatever else and connect the switch to the router.

This way I expect to be able to ssh between the box and the NAS (both with GB ports) through the TL-SG105's much faster Gb link.

 

box         | <--> |

netbook  | <--> | Gb switch | ---> ADSL router --> web

NAS        | <--> |

 

Q:

Am I correct in assuming that I'll get a Gb link between the box and the NAS?

Or does everything still pass through the router?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

W.

You should be able to mitigate the bottleneck introducing a TL-SG105 the way you described.

You may take a look at the TL-SG105E as well - it's an easy smart switch (it has a WebGUI for management) and it could offer more visibility/flexibility in your LAN.

It supports ethernet ports link aggregation and also supports VLANs if you ever need them.

Their price difference is negligible.

Great.

I was not sure it would work as I thought it would.

Thank you for your input.

 

Best,

 

W.
