Hi Guys

 

Looking for suggestions for high speed switches. We have over 1000 mbps coming into the house.

 

We have multiple devices in rooms but only one LAN port.

 

Any suggestions much appreciated.

TIA

 

 

 

[Mod edit (MF): remove "unlimited" as it's not related to speed, before people start nitpicking on something unrelated]

If you have over 1000 Mb/s then you will need a 10 Gig capable switch. Do you need that capacity to each client device, or is 1 Gig to the client OK? A Gig switch with 10 Gig uplink port/s will be cheaper than something needing 10 Gig everywhere.

What ISP/ plan are you on?  It is unlikely you have a speed > 1gbps as you claim, but I might be wrong. 

 

This is important as you either need gb switches, or 10gb switches, the price difference could be great.

Hi we are unlimited data and speed, we speed test each day and have yet to go below 900 down and up.

 

On Monday we had 1005mbps which was a surprise.

 

We live next to a brand new school just built and the speed is do with the location of the UFB infrastructure (according to the chorus bloke next door).

UFB speeds have nothing to do with location (unlike copper). You would get the very same speed whether you're next to a school or 3km from that school.

 

You are on a standard Gigabit plan and the 1005 is merely a flaw in whatever test you were using. All you need is a standard Gigabit switch that you can get from any retailer starting at about $20 or so for a 5 port.

Unless you are getting "Hyperfibre" most Gigabit switches are fine to wire up a house, unless you want to do fancy things such as PoE or VLANs.

 

https://cdlnz.com/SMCGS801V2 this is a simple unmanaged switch will set you back around $100 through most retailers

 

Be aware if you want PoE, Management, or VLANs pricing will go up on a logarithmic scale

5 port Gig switch for $20? Cheapest I've seen is about $40
