Netgear 8-port GS308 also on sale.
$16.99 after $2 coupon:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PFYM5MZ/
The biggest difference on paper between the Netgear GS108 and GS308 is the warranty. The GS108 (marketed at businesses) has a lifetime warranty, while the GS308 (marketed for home and office use) only comes with a 2 year warranty.

Wish these switches, TP and Netgear were QoS. Always helps.

Thanks OP! I've been waiting on a solid deal on a Gigabit switch.

Also, the price updated to $15.99 - $2 = $13.99 even better.

I was not disputing the caps in the GS308. I was disputing that you stated that the TP-Link is solid state with no caps. Your exact words "TP-Link is all solid state."


The link you provided has no mention of the TP-Link while the link I provided shows a tear down of the TP-Link with caps.

🥱 I said it source: me . I have both. TP-Link use solid cap. When post something, be informative to the community instead argue for the sake of arguing.

Where are solid capacitors on SG108? I don't see any of them. Do you think SG108 has solid capacitors?LMAO
There is no solid capacitor on SG108. We call those capacitors are Non-soild Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors.
Be educated . Solid and non-soldid electrolytic caps.🥱

Glad I had waited until today to make my purchase since at $14 it's an even sweeter deal.

That's freaking awesome
Never mind, didn't realize that was 'geared' towards NetGear.
Just got mine in the mail today as of 9/30/2019 from Amazon and it does come with a Lifetime Warranty... Freaking Awesome.

I have a server and MOCA v1.1 network that is 100mbps in the loft. Been having streaming issues of 4k UHD streaming to my MOCA in my family room.

In the loft with the router, I have used all the ports with the 4th port for a 8 port gigabit switch.

So you are saying I should unplug the the 3 ethernet ports from the router and put them into the 8 port switch to maximize my internal network speed?

If I do this isn't my router still managing the traffic? I am trying to get my 4k UHD streaming to be smooth but can't figure out if it's the way I wired my setup? I tried buying the gigabit version of MOCA but I still had hiccups stremang 4k content.
I don't really understand your network topology or how the devices are connected to give you a definite answer. It also depends on the make/model of what you call the router. If you want to DM me a rough pictorial sketch of your relevant connections and endpoints, I can take a look.

The problem with ethernet routers/switches is not traffic over just one pair of links (in and out) which they do fine but rather if they have been asked to do parallel routing/switching between multiple ports each of which may be heavy traffic.

If you have ethernet over a coax then a MOCA device separates multiple ethernet streams over that coax into individual ethernet ports where the receiving devices are connected. If that is the way two devices at either end of the coax link are communicating, then a separate ethernet switch is not going to help. But if the MOCA router is handling traffic between two devices at the same end of the link running just as an ethernet switch/router without using the coax link to connect them, then you are better off off-loading those to a good ethernet switch at that end to handle the traffic between them.

For example, if your media server and a streaming client are both in the loft, then you don't want the MOCA router to be the router between them since the coax link is not needed to communicate between them. Any such traffic between two such devices in the loft going through the MOCA router may affect the throughput over the coax into a remote device at the other end. But if you want to stream over the coax into another location, then the traffic from the server has to pass through the MOCA router.

It is the equivalent of "No HDMI kills the deal".

your setup is fine.
Change out your coax splitters.

Would this switch be sufficient for a wired/networked home as the first switch in the setup, so cable>modem>mesh router>switch> then hardwired access points throughout the home or is there a more preferred type to handle the bulk of the initial throuput?
I've run TP-Link SG1008D (8 port gigabit switches) continuously in my home for about 4 years. One functioned in the primary location for which you've requested. I've just replaced them with Cisco managed switches. Here's why: sometimes the tp link gigabit switches stopped working and had to be reset. Sometimes it was just a random port that mysteriously dropped off and stayed gone after a power cycle. Sometimes the switch broadcast massive garbage and broke the entire network. My pfsense firewall/router complained about garbage spewing from the tp link switch. The other tp link switch connect to the first also stopped working and a work laptop bricked while I was in the middle of something important due to the network storm (laptop required the power line and battery to be pulled). The network returned to normal after I power cycled the tp link switches and pfsense stopped complaining about the rampant garbage coming from the tp link. I still have two tp link switches left in my network but they are not in primary locations. The primary and secondary switches are now cisco SG250 series.

The TP link switches are okay for budget-conscious home deployments but they come with trade-offs. They were more reliable then netgear and dlink, for me. They just aren't as reliable as I needed so I spent more money to get more reliability. At least, that's the hope.

Hmm at times (mostly late evening) I lose connection to the inet. Upstairs is on a different switch (basement supplies inet, 2 out) and mine 1st flr. to the 308e. Guess I'll reset the switch next time to see...
