    Default Network hub

    I have two computers in my room but only one Ethernet cable. So I figured a switch would be a good solution. Is this one good? Newegg.com - NETGEAR ProSafe GS108T-200NAS Gigabit Smart Switch 10/100/1000Mbps 8 x RJ45 4K MAC Address Table I'm a little confused with the "Port Mirroring" I do have ports that I need forwarded to my router so do I need Port Mirroring?

    You get a USB stick with the wireless or could buy one. Here we go again....... If the wireless router is in the next room, you will not have a signal problem. You DO NOT need wifi with a wireless router. It seems everytime you make a thread and I come up with a suggestion or solution, you have the answer or change the dynamics of the issue.

    Just like you run 20 IE windows and 20 microsoft word windows on your laptop while gaming which is rediculous.

    I'm not changing the question at all, I asked if that would be a good switch and you have yet to even touch that question. The router isn't in the next room, it's on the other side of the house. And I'm not asking for a different solution trust me, I've thought of everything and this is the best thing I can think of. If anyone is changing the dynamics of the question here it is you.

    Ok, so the router is on the other side of the house and you do not want to run a 100 ft ethernet cable. Wouldn't a network hub require you to run a ethernet cable? I am confused please configure the layout for us.

    A good wireless router should work in your home BTW. and then you could network each computer through the wireless. Good routers work over 100 feet away. buy one and if it does not work, bring it back.

    Would not need an additional 100" cable, just patch cords to reach from the switch to each PC.

    I already have one ethernet cable run to my room, so I'd rather spend like 80 on a switch and couple short cables than 250 on better router and usb wifi cards.

    Gotcha. This would work then but you can get a wireless router that would do the job cheap and no more ethernet cables but either would work

    This should work fine in your home if you entertained putting it upstairs and buy an additional USB stick and bing, no more wires. just a suggestion. The signal would be good for over 100 feet.

    Thanks, still liking the switch better though. I already have two ethernet wires to hook them up with, and because the switch is currently on sale I think I'm getting a pretty good deal with it.
