I would like to be able to turn off the internet connections to wired computers. I was thinking of adding a managed switch next to my isps router and then using that to turn the ports on or off.
I am not sure what to buy tplink have l2 type with poe on 8 ports so might be good in the future. They have l2+ 16 port no poe managed switches at a reasonable price too. I would also like to give my computer full bandwith when I teach online, at present everyone affects it I think when I am in classes. Will a managed switch get me what I desire?
my choices seem to be TL-SG1016PE or
TP-Link Switch T2600G-18TS(TL-SG3216) 16x1000/2xSFP L2 Managed
I also would like a better wifi access point I think my tplink wa901 is struggling.
advice would be welcome.
