TP-LINK TL-SG1008D 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch
If you just want a simple, 8-port Gigabit Ethernet switch requiring very little setup, then you should definitely give this model a good look. It has a plug-and-play design and doesn't require any additional software to use since it's an unmanaged switch. It automatically detects whether a connected device uses a 10Mbps, 100Mbps, or 1000Mbps connection, adjusting speeds and performance accordingly. The energy-efficient design reduces power consumption based on whether ports are in use, if connected devices are currently powered on, and it's a fan-less model so it runs very quietly. You can set it up on a desktop or easily mount on a wall. It's quite inexpensive which makes it great for a casual setup, plus eight ports should be more than enough for most small businesses and houses.
