Can anyone recommend good brands for switches?


#1

Can anyone recommend good brands for switches? I need more ethernet ports. My current router is full. : S Also beyond brand names what should I pay for one new and used? I know we have a recycle pc parts place near me that may have what I need. Btw I am in Canada so factor that in if you can.

I use these Amer 8 port switches at work ($32). Don’t know if they’re necessarily the best, but I haven’t seen any go bad yet.

This is probably fine too, and cheaper ($25, and there’s a 5-port option for $20)

If you can Find a Cheap Allied Telesis, Cisco, Extreme Networks, HP Second hand Switches are good.
TP-Link and Dlink have been good for un-managed Switches if buying new.
