I got 1000ft of CAT6 for $90, and I demolished my house inside so I desided to do good for the future. I'm stuck with that house for 30 years. =)

I have enjoyed working with HP ProCurve devices in the past. A refurbed 24-port managed gigabit ProCurve will run you about $250-300 on Fleabay. 16-port unit should come in at around $200-250.

Do you need a managed switch (more expensive) or will un-managed work?
Unmanaged should work for now, but it would be nice to have managed one for the future. I guess I can always add inline power adaptor for POE if I wanted to add an AP

[EDIT] lol... I guess it's worthless, it only has 2 gigabit ports and 24 10/100
While true Cisco makes good switches, they are not the "best" out their either. The switch linked above does provide Gb uplinks it is not a true Gb switch.

You are probably looking more for something like. The Cisco SR2016T http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...annel&CMP=OTC- this is an unmanaged switch
or Cisco SLM2016T
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...annel&CMP=OTC- this is a managed switch, meaning you may need to configure it.

*EDIT*
If you want PoE let me know and if you want Layer 2/3 I can probably point you in the right direction too.

10GbE has been out for quite some time now, atleast 5 years that I can think of, tho I have only seen it put in 1 home.

Before these were Brocade, these were Foundry Networks. Foundry switches were the first to come out with 10GbE on every port, the backplane of these is even more impressive.

Brocade switches now, since they bought out Foundry are probably the "best" switches on the market.

I don't think I could afford one of these, but thanks for info, they look really good

best for the money, and just as some advice, never get a d-link, waste of time and money.

why i recommended the Cisco

The Cisco SR2016T http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...annel&CMP=OTC- this is an unmanaged switch for $179.99
or Cisco SLM2016T
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...annel&CMP=OTC- this is a managed switch is $269.99

hmmm, the specs look promising (512kb buffer/port, WOW). But! I don't like the power bricks, and this specific model has a history of expoding and failing PSUs from overheating. And yeah, d-link sucks fo show

I know but most 10GbE is not financially feasible for home use. $500 per NIC is a bit much for most.


It will take some time for 10GbE to become cheaper.

You could probably pick up a used managed Procurve GB switch with a decent backplane at the 200 to 250ish range on eBay. I have nothing but praise for the Procurve product line, other then odd documentation on Colubris acquisitions and sometimes odd licensing, but neither of those should impact you .
