I need an 8 port switch capable of being compatible with a Linksys EA9500. There are several options listed for switches such as managed or not managed. I have no idea what that refers to or if I need it. My needs are not complex. The ports on the switch will go to a Dish Network Hopper tv receiver, hulu, Sony TV, blueray DVD player, two laptops and a desktop. Since I pay for  one gig service and frequently get 950 up and down I naturally want to take advantage of that speed on all my devices. One expert has already suggested two different model and brands. My budget is set at $150.00 maximum unless there is a definite need for something higher priced. I welcome suggestions. Some have a lifetime warranty that is quite nice.
