Amazon product: NETGEAR 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS316) – Desktop, Fanless Housing for Quiet Operation
Wanted to have a wired connection to my internet provider’s modem for all of my main hardware, and this does the job. Have a 50ft Cat6 ethernet cable running from my modem to this switch and it provides the perfect “unmanaged” solution for a connection to my desktop, Xbox and Plex PC (all located on a lower floor and beside one another). | I have 300mbps up and 10mbps down speeds, and this switch’s caps are nowhere near that, so I’m getting full bandwidth of my internet speeds. | TLDR: For those of you that want to expand your ethernet ports and don’t care to mess with technical settings, this is the ethernet switch/expander for you.
