Hi fellow Netduma Enthusiasts 

 

 

I just bought the Nighthawk XR500 router and have the EX7300 wireless extender.  Throughout the house I have 3 switches for lounge, theatre and gaming room. My question is......

 

Will swapping the standard GB switches for all Netgear S8000 Gigabit switches make a difference? Would it make a difference and make it worthwhile? There on special at moment and having all Netgear makes sense I think.

 

But as always you assistance would be greatly appreciated?

switches are just switches and Brand names are irrelevant. i have similar setup to you and i have various brands (all gigabit).

switches all talk to each other without any intervention. plug-and-play as such.

 

prob best to keep all as gigabit just...
