I've got a 5-port switch that runs off a 5V supply: http://www.retractacable.com/product_in ... ucts_id=66RaTTuS wrote:I'd like to put in one box the following :-
1 5port NIC switch [it's a braodcom chip ;-p] - takes 12V 1A as its input

I assume you mean 2.5" ? Most 2.5" USB caddies I've seen (I've got one labelled as "IcyBox") simply take a 5V supply (mine came with a USB-data lead and a USB power-only lead).1 2" usb drive - I've got a caddy that I can use the innards of that takes 12V 2A as its input
...so if you're careful you can run the whole shooting match off a (suitably beefy) single 5V PSU1x RPi takes 5V as input., [or maybe two if there is room]
now how to I power all this sensibly from one plug ?
also in regards to the NIC switch is it enough to solder a bunch of leads to the appropriate pins on the switch
Yeah I can make up ethernet cables - have all the stuff to handAndrewS wrote: Nope, that's not how Ethernet works. See all the problems caused when they used the non-magnetic ethernet jacks on the Raspi...
It's not too hard to make up your own super-short ethernet cables though http://www.maplin.co.uk/rj45-and-rj11-c ... -set-99612
