    Perfect Home Network Ethernet switch

    I would not recommend anything less than an 8-port switch, this allows 1 port in and 7-ports out. In my home office I have 3 computers, a 4K TV, a Roku, and a printer, this takes 6-ports leaving 1-port for company. I have had no lag or issues while using the office or on any of the other devices running in the rest of the house. Manage up to 7 computers in a SOHO network with this NETGEAR 300 Series Unmanaged GS308100PAS Gigabit switch.

    New Internet provider = new home network Needed more ports because I bought more stuff. Have a single port in the room and that was just fine. Then more things got added to each room, then I got a new Internet provider so things were faster, and these do a great job making sure that all of the computers, TiVos, and smart TVs have all the conductivity they need.

    This Netgear switch box appears to be very well made, works like a charm with no problems whatsoever and takes up very little space with leaving enough room to easily insert or take out a ethernet cable. Highly recommended.

    With all the smart home tech out there now, I needed more ports for my main router. This was it! Super simple to use and get going which is a plus, and does everything I need it to!

    I was out of ports on the router provided by my ISP and needed to find a quality, compact switch with multiple ports for a reasonable price. This switch was the perfect solution with ports to spare for future additions to the network.

    Best switch I've ever used. Easy to use, no configuration needed. Will definitely deliver those gigabit speeds, even on non-cat 6 cables at shorter distance. Great to use if you have multiple video consoles.

    Set up is simple. Simply plug it in, and start connection your network cables. I haven't tested transfer speeds, but my network hasn't skipped a beat. I ended up buying a second one, so I had enough to network the rest of my house.
