Summary: I got this Linksys SE4008 WRT 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch along with a wireless router Linksys WRT1900AC AC1900 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router. Just plug your internet service into the wireless router, and back out into the switch unit and bam you have plenty of internet connection plugs.
Summary: Makes a great living room switch for your TV, HTPC, ethernet connected bluray, gaming consoles etc. Blends in well and basically disappears when you use the lights out feature (turns all LED's off).
Summary: A lot of problems with switches is dropped packet forward, especially in auto sensing ports which makes their speed very shaky. I constistently get 10ms ping, and a rock solid consist speed in speed test. Has improved my network performance and reduced several of my network problems.
