Dell is having the Netgear Nighthawk managed 8-port gigabit switch on sale for $59.99. If you have the 25% off Google Express coupon from Tmobile, you may get it from Frys through Google Express at that price too. If you get it from Dell, you may find 8% cash back somewhere to make it cheaper.

I got one a few months ago with at $55AC. It works really well. I have 2 gigabit ports aggregated for my QNAP NAS on it.

It is $79.99-$99.99 else where. See Amazon for more hardware info and product reviews.

Is this what I would use to split the internet coming in to my home to go out to the various LAN connections in different rooms in my house? AT&T came in to set up my internet in our new house and told me I needed a "switch" to be able to get hardwired internet to my TVs. I'm hoping this is it. Thanks

It sounds like you need a simple unmanaged switch.

Here is one for $15: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HH0W5W/

This would work for that, but might be more than what you need. This will prioritize some ports over others and has software built in to "manage" the network. If you have a fairly simple set up there's an unmanaged trend net green that goes on sale for 15 (looks like a guy linked above) or so, and that might be all you need. Once you start adding NAS and plex servers and things then a managed could be a good idea until then make sure you just get a switch big enough, and lookit the connections. Make sure you subtract a port each time your looking too. There are some that are only 5 port (which when you feed in your internet that takes a port away so you can only hook up 4) or there's some solid 8 port ones out there. Monoprice is good too if you are planning to buy a bit more items for cords and adapters and things.. I usually go there for my right angle hdmi adapters and what not when setting up my rooms.

Switch yes, but not this model. Managed switches are mainly for business and power users. An unmanaged 8 port switch in the $20 range would be more appropriate for your home.

It depends on what you want. For streaming HD media, online gaming, or other high demand connections, you should get a managed switch. Anyway, you can start with a simple unmanaged one and then upgrade later. I have 2 unmanaged gigabit switch before I got this one as I want to aggregate 2 gigabit port to my NAS. If you have plan to do these kind of things in the near future, you can save that $20 for an unmanaged and start with the managed one. One advantage for unmanaged switch is the simplicity of setup (just plug and play). This managed switch has already a port optimize for media streaming and a port for gaming.

Pretty weak for a "managed" switch to not support VLANs
