There was a deal earlier this week for a 5-port TP-Link Gigabit Ethernet switch. I went ahead and ordered through Newegg and mailed in the rebate. Obviously, the rebate hasn't come in yet, but the switch I ordered came in and it works wonderfully, just in case anyone is considering getting the 8-port switch for $20, $10 after-rebate.

I have a 50-ft Cat 5 running from the router in our main room to port 1 on the Ethernet switch in my room, and two Cat 6 cables running from ports 2 and 3 to laptops. So far, everything has worked flawlessly and I've even gotten transfer speeds around 862 Mbps on medium-sized transfers (the 5400 rpm hard drive on my HP was usually the limit on this connection). Everything worked right out of the box and setup was really straightforward. I literally just plugged in the power cable and hooked up the Ethernet cables, and everything was done. The exact model I ordered was the TP-LINK TL-SG1005D, but I'm sure the TL-SG1008D will work just as well. The 5-egg review average on Newegg and 4.5 star reviews on Amazon for both seem really accurate.

Let me know if this helps.

Anyone got any review on the GS308P? Planning on pulling trigger on it, to go along with a pfsense box. Need 8 ports and it seems perfect since I dont think I would need a managed switch for a home network. Not really a network expert here, anyone have any thoughts?

I have a router that can manage priority based on device, so would there be a major reason to pay more for a managed switch?

I'm going to take a chance on the Trendnet router. From the reviews it looks like it may only be useful if you change the firmware and re-seat and add a heatsinks. I might even add a fan.

On the rebate form they have a box next to the model number of this switch.
So I bought two of these, so do I put a 2 in the little box or just a check mark?
Any opinions out there?

no need to be regretful.
reviews are not good.
usually burned out after weeks.

cat 6 will potentially make a difference for the sheer fact it reduces noise and cross talking of cables improving signal. I noticed a difference above my cat5.. worth it, imo
here's a video on how to do it easily

Pulled the trigger on the Trendnet TEW-811DRU router, and after a couple of weeks of continuous operation I am happy with the router performance. No wifi dropouts etc issue. I'm still using the normal Trendnet firmware (not DD-WRT), and it's running as it should be. Can't monitor the temperature, but from outside the temp. feels reasonable. Will see how it runs in the future.

I have been running the Trendnet TEW-811DRU for several months now. It has worked without any hitch for me till now. I am also using the Trendnet firmware. Prior to this I had always installed DD-WRT on my routers.
