Best 24Port Gigabyte switch for LAN's?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I was looking for a 24 port switch with Gigabyte lan. Before i asked it here and after that i decided to go with the 16 port Switch.
Well here is the funny thing, My brother and i both have a group where we have lanparty's with, and we came up the idea of buying a 24 port switch so we would be able to organize a 20 man LAN

We haven't bought the 16 port yet, we just plugged a few routers together.

But now we came up with this crazy idea and now we decided to really get a 24 slot one (maybe even more..)

the idea also is to be able to connect a server on it to have all the consoles on of the game servers, Also a hacked xBox which does act like an xbox server (some games don't have lan options on xbox apparently)

The costs will be divided by 3 (maybe 4) so about 250 USD will be the maximum amount of money were willing to spare (Unless there is something real sexy out there for like 279USD)

Our currency is Euro though, so that pretty much why

So maybe anyone who could help us out with this? I really cant find a good one since i know almost zero about switches etc.
Ideal would be to have a server connected to it AND internet access!

Thanks in advance!

What you're looking for is a gigabit switch. I'm about to purchase one myself, I will be looking for a good Dell PowerConnect 2724 on ebay.

This is probably the most affordable option for a 24 port gigabit switch honestly.

So i will be able to hook up an extra server on this one and also the router?

It seems pretty nice imo
But ill have to get that one second hand since dell is asking 1000 dollars for it which is a little bit over our budget (A)

Depends if you need a managed one or not.
Just for a LAN party any unmanaged switch should do, even something such as

Thats a pretty good price for a 24 ports

But whats the difference between a managed and a unmanaged switch?

And also, what does SFP means?

a managed switch will allow you to go in configure each specific port, with things suchs as vlan's, QoS, speed/duplex, among some other things. an unmanaged is home user plug and play

Thanks for clearing that out for me

Still have my questions on the SFP, it all says 4 extra SFP ports.. im only guessing that that's nice but i have no clue why and what it does
post #9 of 15
managed switch has functions like:

Turn particular port range on or off
Link bandwidth and duplex settings
Priority settings for ports
IP Management by IP Clustering.
MAC filtering and other types of "port security" features which prevent MAC flooding
Use of Spanning Tree Protocol
SNMP monitoring of device and link health
Port mirroring (also known as: port monitoring, spanning port, SPAN port, roving analysis port or link mode port)
Link aggregation (also known as bonding, trunking or teaming)
VLAN settings
802.1X network access control
IGMP snooping
