This is my first post on mybroadband.
We are a small family business with 7 PCs currently on an un-managed switch. We all access the internet via an ADSL connected to the switch. We operate on a workgroup.
We are looking to upgrade our network for the following reasons:
1> We are growing and need additional ports for new users
2> We have several employees who are milking our bandwidth on Youtube, FB etc despite numerous warnings
So what are we hoping to achieve?
1> Increase the number of ports to accommodate the additional users (24 should suffice)
2> have the ability to block certain ports from connecting the the ADSL
3> all within a R 3,000 budget
Any ideas on a good managed switch to achieve the above?
Please bear in mind that my IT knowledge is below average so something that isn't too complicated to setup and manage.
