    I'm looking for a linksys gigabit switch. I've seen multiple models, and I've also read reviews on them. Most people like 'em, with the exception of loud fan noises. What model switch would be a nice one. The noise probably wouldn't bother me too much, so much as it isn't extremley loud. I need a gig switch with 5-8 ports... Thanks

    There are lots of cheap 5-8 gigabit switches available? What do you really want? A managed switch? VLAN capability. Just gigabit? Is gigabit even necessary? Even most heavy duty gamers would not overload a very good 100Mb full duplex switch. Are you using in for a SAN? Netbackup? etc...

    A while back I picked up a D-Link DGS-2208. No fan, no noise, about $45 a/r.
