#1 priority is to learn. Secondary priorities are speed and security within my home lab
Much appreciated. I know my post was overwhelming, thank you for taking the time to write that up. I will refer to it when my switch arrives
I just bought my first managed switch. It's a Zyxel 1910-24G. I understand the benefits of VLAN for performance and security, and I made a decision to make use of VLAN, but I'm having trouble wrapping my head around how I am going to implement it. It's a fairly basic design for most network...
