Can't decide: DGS-1008G vs. GS108

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm in the process of picking out hardware for my wired home network. There are two pieces I need to figure out: my router and my switch. Wireless is not a consideration here.

For the router, I'm thinking of the DGL-4100. Any alternative recommendations?

For the central switch I'm thinking either the D-Link DGS-1008G or the Netgear GS108. Any pros or cons here that I should be considering?

For the router, I'd stick to what you have, or possibly an E3000/E3200 (They're rebrands with different shells), and for the switch definitely get the DGS-1008. I've got that switch at home, as well as the router as a WAP, and I couldn't be happier.

Wireless is pretty much useless to me in the router location - is there any other benefit to getting one of those linksys models?

I'm wondering how that switch compares to (what I think is) the equivalent model by other manufacturers, like the Netgear GS108 or the Linksys SE2800.
