Windows 7: Distributing wired and wireless broadband around the house, how?

I get it now

The Skybox primarily pulls a TV signal from the dish, but you can also pull channels from the internet.

I was asking all these questions to see if you needed gigabit speed, looks like you do. I had a Trendnet previously that worked pretty good $39, 8 port, 1 Gbps.

Newegg.com - TRENDnet TEG-S80G Switch 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet 10/100/1000Mbps 8 x RJ45 8K MAC Address Table 128KBytes Buffer Memory

Thanks once again. Something that is slightly confusing though is this.

Am I right in thinking that 1000 is Gigabit? I see Gigabit switches detailing 10/100 RJ45 ports.

Can you possibly explain this?

Yes, 1000 = Gigabit. 10/100 means they run at 10 or 100. You want to get a switch that runs at 10, 100, or 1000. All three 10/100/1000.

Don't know. Specification wise it looks the same as the trendnet. Look for customer reviews of the product.

My mistake

I was looking at an online shopping site relating to that Dlink router and it obviously had a typing error since it said Gigabit switch with 10/100 RJ45 ports, when I looked at the manufacturers site it clearly stated 10/100/1000 ports for the same router.

Great advice from both of you.

And the perfect solution to my needs.

Many thanks again to both of you.

When I was shopping for switches, I did come across the odd one, that had a couple ports that ran at 10/100/1000. Then all the rest of the ports ran at 10/100. I stayed away from that type, because my plan is to have an "all gig" network. I guess it depends on where you want to go with your network.

Speaking of go, here is a couple examples of go all out.
