Another Piece For The Home Network Puzzle – A Return To Cisco IOS!

I’ve missed the good old days of configuring and setting up good quality switching hardware (like the big, huge Cisco switches and routers I used to experiment on with their IOS command line interface). I recently ordered this newer, smaller Cisco switch which can also provide power to a new “prosumer” WiFi AP (no power cables needed).

This unit is very stable and reliable and I bought it because it provides the following features:
[8 ports] [fanless quietness] [gigabit switching] [dot1q trunking vlans] [poe.af] and a return to using [IOS] management over SSH!
So our home network has the following hardware running our WiFi network:

Ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO gen2 (multi SSID-VLANs)
  ʌ(poe)v
Cisco Switch SG250-08HP poe (multi dot1q-trunks)
  ʌ(cat6)v
OpenWRT Router Linksys-WRT32X (one tagged-port, multi VLAN-interfaces)
  ʌ(802.11ac)v
TP-Link Archer C7-V5 (basement router, connected modem)
