    24+ port fanless managed switch with 8 PoE ports?

    Oh, it does indeed! I am truly greatful for all you advice, thanks again for taking the time to respond in such depth!! I intend to heed this advice, and taking into account also @coxhaus' experiences from Cisco, it very much looks like I will be building a combo of the Cisco SG350-10MP...

    24+ port fanless managed switch with 8 PoE ports?

    Again, thank you so much for taking the time to help me with this, Trip!! Very appreciated!! :-) I am actually starting to think that combining two (or more) switches may give me the best bang for the buck, as well as most flexibility for the future. Your recommendation Cisco SG-350-10MP...

    24+ port fanless managed switch with 8 PoE ports?

    WOW! Thanks SO much, Trip!! Your knowledge has just saved me 100s of hours of research!! :-)!! I yesterday managed to identify the Cisco C2960L as an alternative, but I would never have found the Ruckus and Zyxel models! You may very well be correct that the Zyxel is the only one within my...

    24+ port fanless managed switch with 8 PoE ports?

    Thanks a lot, coxhaus! Yes, that is actually not a bad idea, it would give me a lot more flexibility!.. Sorry for noob question, but when trunking switches together, would those two switches have to be the same brand/firmware? Or is the trunking technique a standard that would work with all...

    24+ port fanless managed switch with 8 PoE ports?

    I am looking for a (simple) managed switch with at least 24 ports, where at least 8 ports are PoE enabled. Since it will be used in a home environment, it needs to be very quiet (ideally passively cooled/fanless). Total PoE power budget needed is 85W. Does this exist?.. Thankful for any...

    ASUS RT-AC88U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.21045

    I have now updated the firmware on my router to this new version. I cannot see anything new in the OpenVPN settings, neither client nor server. So I guess it must be some behind-the-scenes protection Asus has increased?..

    ASUS RT-AC88U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.21045

    Does anyone have more information about what "more protection" for OpenVPN means? What is it exactly that has changed with this new firware release?

    Trend Micro Two Way IPS Hits

    Does anyone know exactly how the Two-way IPS/AiProtection works? I cannot find any detailed/technical information anywhere... I keep getting a few of these "High Severity Level" hits each day (luckily, no attacks seem to be successful). How on earth can these attacks even hit me -- my home...

    Does the VPNFilter malware affect ASUS Routers?

    FYI -- I have now seen three seemingly unrelated reports from individuals claiming that they have recently discovered that their Asus router started behaving strange, and that a new VPN client has been created. They all speculate that this could have something to do with VPNFilter. Two of the...

    Asus Router app and "unintentional" activation of remote access to router

    I took the time an wrote to Asus to request them to change this. Answer: "This is how the application is suppose to work, all is working as intended.". Sigh... From: xxx Sent:2018-04-06 16:05:21 Subject:Satisfaction - Produktkvalitet Apply Date : 2018/04/06 14:05:21.535 (UTC Time)...

    Maximum security from a consumer router?

    Thanks so much, everyone, for all your great advice! Much appreciated! Based on your comments (and some further research), I have concluded that I will probably start with trying the OpenWRT (or possibly DD-WRT or Merlin) firmwares. I think the Synology routers may be interesting to keep an...

    Maximum security from a consumer router?

    I am today running a consumer-grade ASUS RT-AC68U router. Getting very tired of: Constant security issues (that may or may not be fixed via Firmware upgrades after weeks or months), for example due to old, not updated, underlying packages/software Lack of automatic updates (at least critical...

    Asus Router app and "unintentional" activation of remote access to router

    Yes. An absolute and utter disaster. I noticed this today, by coincidence. Been exposed for weeks now. So, so, bad... Am in contact with ASUS support, to ensure they fix this.

    Cloudflare Announces DNS That Won't Track You

    Can confirm that this DNS is fast. However, I am much more interested in the (security provided by the) DNS over HTTPS functionality. Is there any way to get that today? I am currently using an ASUS RT-AC68U router, current firmware. Would it help to switch to DD-WRT or Tomato?
