PS4 & PS3 Ethernet connection.

[ Edited ]
7 Replies 910 Views edited 21-11-2013

Currently, my PS3 is connected to via ethernet to my broadband. When i get my PS4, it will be co-located and i want that connected via Ethernet to EXCEPT i have one Ethernet port to link to (which currently houses PS3 connection).

 

Assuming i only have one machine on at a time, would a simple Ethernet splitter do to connect both devices to the one port?

 

Any advice or suggestions please.

Just get a simple 4 port hub and a couple of 1m Ethernet cables.

 

Something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-SF1005D-100Mbps-Unmanaged-Desktop/dp/B000FNFSPY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF...

PS4 Games - AC4:BF - BF4 - KILLZONE - FIFA 14 - MADDEN - NBA 2K14 - INJUSTICE - WAR THUNDER

I have recently purchased the same hub switch for this purpose, had used all four ethernet ports of the BT Hub 4 was going to get a Wifi adapter for the Sky box to free up a port, but this is a better cheaper option.

 

Was going to connect recently purchased WiiU to it but there's no ethernet port what were you thinking of Nintendo seriously.

I have my PS3 and PS4 sharing a super cheap (13.00USD) network switch.

Works flawlessly.

Re: PS4 & PS3 Ethernet connection.

The TP-Link switch mentioned earlier does exactly what you need and is cheap and reliable. I've been using one for over 2 years now without any trouble.

 

It just works.

 

There's a spare lead on mine just waiting for a ps4! :smileywink:

 

 They do a gigabit version if you'd rather.
