The TP-Link 8-port Gigabit Ethernet network switch (opens in new tab) is down to $16.99 with code AFMTP8 at Newegg. That's a solid $3 discount for a switch that sells at $20 normally both at Newegg and other retailers like Amazon (opens in new tab). The switch only drops to this price once every five or six months so it's nice to grab it while you can.
Plug-and-play switch that's easy to setup and configure. Has eight Gigabit Ethernet ports for splitting wired connections and expanding network capacity. Quiet, fanless, and wall mountable. Automatically adjusts power consumption to save on power.

Hey, I'm writing to you through this switch right now! My post was submitted through an Ethernet cord connected to TP-Link's switch, which is connected to my router. It's magic. I have built-in Ethernet ports in all the main rooms of my house. All those Ethernet ports end in a small box in my coat closet, which are then connected to the switch so I can have a wired home network.
A switch like this is great when you want to skip Wi-Fi and add a few more devices to your network with an Ethernet cable for a more stable connection. It could be that you just have a lot of items hooked up to your network and need a few more ports, too. Getting a hard-wired internet connection can be pretty important for your main computer, gaming consoles, and accessories like printers.
It's a switch that's essentially plug-and-play because it requires no additional configuration or software to get things rolling. The five ports are all capable of speeds up to 1000 Mbps, which means you're far more likely to be limited by your ISP than this switch. The sturdy metal casing gives you a lot of options where you want to put it, including mounting it to a wall. And once it's in place, you'll forget all about it because it has no fan or other noisy parts to distract you. The traffic optimization means even sensitive traffic like voice or video will have low latency.
