    Default 8-Port Gigabit Switch

    Friend's home-based small office needs a 8-port gigabit switch.

    What brand /model would you recommend? TP-Link, Dlink , or Netgear?

    Budget - <$150.

    Cheers

    $150? Crikey. One of these will be fine.

    Or one of these if you want something more robust.

    At this level a switch is a switch is a switch. Unless you want something managed, or with PoE, anything will do.

    Can confirm they're good, I have two of them, and have gone through a bunch of others over the last two years. These ones are basically all I buy now!
