    Can anyone recommend a good one that has at least 8 ports? I'm looking through Newegg.com and I can't seem to find too many.

    Unless you're packet sniffing, you should be looking for a network switch.

    Then look for 'switch' instead of 'hub' and you're golden.

    Most 'hubs' are really switches anyway.
