I would like to purchase a switch for my friend who is turning his unfinished basement into a lan party room. I have no idea what to compare between models though. Can you help me?

These are a few models I looked at, but as I said, I have no idea how they are different. I am hoping this might speed things up from what switches we have been using and also make it so we don't have to hook up multiple five port switches/routers.

Thanks in advance guys.

Get the ASUS. It does Gigabit switching. Much faster than the 10/100 switches from TD. TD has been having some cust service issues as of late anyways re: payment errors, etc that I've noticed on the O&E board.

lanning right now. purchased two of the asus gigabit switches. they seem to be helping us late in tactical games. i really like that they light up green if there is a gigabit connection. we had one person at the party that was only running at 100 and didn't know it. we went out and got him an ethernet card with giga ability.
