Two brands you really can't go wrong with are Cisco, and D-Link. I personally use D-Link hardware myself and swear by it, but I have many friends who use Cisco gear and also swear by it.
I can't give you a specific model number to look for on the Cisco side, but if you decide to go D-Link, look for the DGS-1008G. I have several of these both for home and work use and have never had a problem with them. Hopefully someone else will see this and suggest something on the Cisco side as well to give you at least one other option.
