Netgear 5-Port Gigabit Switch, Software-Managed for $20.
We use this Switch in a room that connects a couple Ethernet devices, and it works fairly well.
It does have software to configure the router (QoS, port mirroring, cable diagnostics) which can be helpful when troubleshooting connection problems.
Asus RT-N12 Wifi Router for $18.
Normally about $28.
Cheap routers can handle only a small number of devices and limited bandwidth, so we do not recommend them for someone who uses the Internet a lot.
However, as a range extender (a second router extending the range of your Wifi network, linked with an Ethernet cable), cheap routers work very well.
Netgear Wifi Range Extender for $19.
Normally about $28.
It is specifically designed to extend the range of your Wifi network in areas of the house where WIfi is weak.
Plug an Ethernet cable into your main router during initial setup, then unplug the cable and plug the range extender onto a power outlet anywhere in the house.
It creates a second SSID that your Wifi devices can connect to when not in range of your main router.
Cyberpower 1500VA Pure Sine Wave UPS for $130.
Still our favorite battery backup/UPS for protecting computers and sensitive electronics, and normally sells for between $180 and $225.

This UPS provides battery backup, and should protect better than a regular UPS as shown in
They can run on Wifi and batteries (which means zero wires running to your cameras), but depending on range and camera quality settings, the batteries may need to be replaced every 2-8 weeks.
With 5 cameras, that can be a hassle.
However, the cloud setup interface is simple to use, making it a breeze to get up and running.
The Arlo is water resistant, and good for outdoor use.
If you are looking for simplicity, the Arlo has it.
If you are looking for a good surveillance system with excellent night vision range, there are better cameras.
Be sure to read the reviews before buying.

TP-Link TL-WR700N Wifi Router for $10 with free shipping.
Normally $22 to $28.
A cheap wifi router like this will have a limited range and number of devices it can support.
So, we would not recommend this for a home or office's main router.
It may be best when used as an "access point" or "bridge" to extend the range of your wifi network.
To use an an "access point", run an Ethernet cable from your main router (or Switch) to somewhere in your home that has a weak wifi signal, plug it into this device, configure as in AP mode, disable DHCP, and set up WPA2 Wifi encryption.
To use as a bridge, plug its Ethernet cable into a computer or device that has an ethernet port but no built-in Wifi, and configure the TP-Link to connect wirelessly to your main Wifi router.
