Looking for a router, not a switch that handles 10/100/1000, preferably
TP-Link (my favorite), but otherwise I'd consider another reliable
It can be wireless as well, but I won't be using the wireless part.
Seems that a lot of the routers out there max out at 300 for Ethernet,
though their wi-fi parts can go much faster.
That's because all Wi-Fi and ethernet is done on IP Layer 2, while
routing is done on Layer 3. It takes more horsepower to route by IP
than to switch by MAC address.
Sorry, but without knowing the number of ports, your estimated total
bandwidth, and options required (cost limit, firewall complexity,
number of MAC addresses, SNMP level, port control, bandwidth
management, etc), I can't offer a recommendation.
If it's potentially messy, think about a PC based router:
I've used pfSense, but mostly as a learning exercise.
