Switch

Recommended Posts

That dynamically adds additional IP addresses to his account without having to call customer service.  Of course there is a charge for that...for the price of those extra IP's for 6 months he can buy a nice router...does not make financial sense at all.  PLUS the router gives him basic protection from intrusion from others.....the extra IP's DO NOT.... :oops:

Sparticus013 you shouldn't notice a speed difference by using that switch over a router because that switch is a router.

Actually, no it's not a router....sorry

a router is a switch. they both work the same exact way, they both route packets in the same way.

Actually they do not route packets in the same way.  Very different beasts and a switch affords you no protection from the outside world at all...whereas a router does a good job of keeping things out (if programmed correctly).
