Greetings list,

Not a directly m0n0wall-related request, but I'm sure plenty of people here use such things so seems
like a good place to ask.

What are folks' recommendations for good semi-managed, cost-effective gigabit switches at the
moment? By "semi-managed" I mean features like port trunking, VLANs, etc, but not necessarily the
full management control a true layer 3 switch would give you.

Has anyone experience with things like the Netgear "smart switches" or Linksys "webview" switches?

Essentially, I'm trying to find the most cost-effective way of getting VLAN-capable switches for a
site, without the financial overhead of a true managed switch.

Thanks in advance.
