    * Is it a 10/100 device from ages past? Time to upgrade. Modern computers and even streaming video from the internet can use enough bandwidth and packets to turn these into Zombies. Upgrade. Rule of thumb: if you need 8 ports now, buy a 16. Need 16, get a 24 port.. You will need more ports and daisy chaining switches when not needed will slow things down. We highly suggest not chaining past 2 deep. ie: A main switch, and then smaller ones that go back to the main switch. If you have a main switch and 4 satellite'​s that go back to the main, some of your traffic must traverse 3 switches, each with a little latency and limiting factors. ​    * Is it a 10/100 device from ages past?

    * Are all the traffic lights on your switch blinking rapidly all the time?  You may have some network traffic issues, or not enough switch. ​    * Are all the traffic lights on your switch blinking rapidly all the time?  You may have some network traffic issues, or not enough switch. ​
-   * Does you network sometimes go nuts, and rebooting (unplugging and plugging back in) your switch cause it to work again? Look at your switch square in the blinky lights and consider an upgrade, Not sure? Talk to your local networking geek. Tell him what you have, if he/she stiffles a gigglesnort,​ you know the answer. ​+   * Does you network sometimes go nuts, and rebooting (unplugging and plugging back in) your switch cause it to work again?
