    Nope. Thats a dedicated rack for testing and practicing before i implement them on a production network.

    i would get fired if i mess something up, mistakes are not acceptable.

    i also use it to study for my upcoming cisco certs.

    Those netgear boxes look nice. Do they ever overheat?

    wrt54g v2.2 with DD-WRT

    We use a lot of Cisco gear at work but the stuff I'm directly involved with are the multilayer 9500 series SAN switches

    layer 2 switches is just like a regular switch

    layer 3 switches like the cisco 3550 can do routing plus switching

    stay away from the netgear boxes for home users. they will overheat, lock up, and drop your wireless connection.

    if you would like to get a netgear router, get their business models like the one i have FWG114P. Its a little bit more expensive but the stability it offers will justify it.

    My Netgear router has never overheated/dropped a wireless signal, and I keep it in the laundry room which can be pretty warm and I've had it for nearly 2 years.

    I've had to immerse myself into playing with wifi alot lately for work. I have another 5 setup around my house in a WDS with WPA. Just trying to see how much the DD-WRT can take and if it can stand an business enviroment.

    I am really going to have to learn networking pretty soon.
    I haven't needed to do it yet, so I've avoided it but I hate not
    knowing what's going on with that stuff.

    Plus, it would be fun to learn how to mooch off of wifi.:mamoru:

    I <3 my WRT54GL, never drops my WiFI unless someone calls the house and my cordless phone is off the base. Gotta upgrade the phone to 2.4Ghz model soon.
