Is this any good? I need a new switch since my old one is only rated to 100 MbPS.

I think it is safe to say that if you don't know what it is, you don't need one. But, an ethernet switch is to connect multiple ethernet devices to one ethernet line. Most home routers have 4 ethernet switch ports on them, you could use this to add more if needed.

Well... a hub is probably more like a cable splitter.

I connect my entire bedroom tech with Ethernet cables on an 8 port unmanaged switch. Less strain on my WiFi that way.

I have the 8 port from some deal last year. It's still going strong at the office, making the IT people mad. Wink

*unmanaged

It means that the switch is simply plug and play. You can't configure the ports and manage devices connected to it. That will be usually done through a router connected to this. You most likely don't need managed switches for basic home use. I've only really seen them in commercial settings, but I'm sure there are some using it for home.

Some of the new Comcast routers only have two! Crazy. Went through a lot more switches this past year during onsites than previous years because of that.
