Video Camera:

Recently a lot of people have been asking us about a good quality webcam. They’ve been hard to find, to say the least! Chris likes this one which is available at a reasonable price: Logitech Webcam

WiFi Routers, Mesh Routers, etc.:

Our review of Routers, Whole House Mesh Routers, and WiFi Adaptors.


When you’re looking for recommended Solid State Drives, Physical Hard Drives, External Storage, and disk mounting adapters too.

Network Switches:

A Network Switch is a thin metal box that has many Ethernet ports. They are used to plug additional equipment into the Network using Ethernet cables. Chris likes having a Network Switch with plenty of ports because performance using an Ethernet cable (plugged into the switch) tends to be faster and more reliable than WiFi.  Chris’ recommended Network Switches.

Chris likes this TP-Link Wireless N300 PCI Adapter.  It’s an internal WiFi adaptor for a PCI slot.  These are getting harder to find.

When you’re looking for a new domain, and not sure which one you want, we’ve found that you are sometimes better off to reserve the domain (URL) that you want right away.  When you search to see if a URL is available, some companies track that activity, and reserve that URL for themselves right away. (The sale of profitable URLs is a thriving business.)

We’ve been using 1&1 almost since the start of Geek For Hire. (They changed their name to IONOS.) We use them to reserve URLs, and they host our website. We’ve found them to be reasonably priced and very good to work with. The few times we’ve had issues, they were able to get things fixed quickly. I like that you can easily set up your new domain with WordPress to quickly get your website up and running. Check out to sign up for new domains for you.
