    Managed Switch or Router?

    Would this for the fiber to pipe it to all my connections and computers? I've had 50 routers in my life and they can be the most annoying things to use... some are so smart they have panic attacks... I'd rather use a dumb hub or something I know can't screw up, but all connections to the fiber line read limited internet cept the dish hopper, it works fine. And yes I did call them but getting a tech is difficult everyone in the office is an office worker and not a tech... Plus I am unsure I know my route works at elast but when we get all the rooms hooked up it will need 6 wired connections.

    A switch is not the same as a router. How is your ISP assigning your IP addresses?
