I need at least five ports (plus a WAN connection to connect to the Fios router) to connect the five Ethernet ports used in my house. Are there any practical differences between gigabit switches? I'm also a perplexed by the lack of WAN port. I've got a cheap switch in the living room. It's four port, with a separate fifth wan port. But looking at newegg, the 8-port switches don't have a separate uplink port, which means they're really 7port switches...or they won't connect my system to the Internet? Are there any 8 port switches with 9th uplink input (affordable for home use)?
