Re: Networking hardware, routers. Differences in how you access their network cards
Ah, yeah, I've herd of the Ubiquity stuff, mostly the access points, as they are highly recommended for use along side Mikrotiks, from what I read. I'll certainly head over and read up on them more though.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I was more so trying to figure out if there was a certain technical term that one would use to refer to these types of hardware, verses the types where the interfaces are separated.
For a good price, you can get one of the cheap Mikrotik routers which lets you have complete control over the interfaces, but as with the Ubiquity hardware, I'd imagine it'd be next to impossible to install anything other than routerOS on them, as they are extremely locked down.
Either way, pretty neat stuff.
Thanks for the suggestions too.

I heard that some of the Ubiquity Edge Router stuff has this capability, and a show suggested that one of them was as low as $49. It may not be able to run open source firmware though, but they suggested that most routers are actually one network interface with a switch hooked to it internally, so that breaking out control by ports or making them isolated separate networks on them isn't generally possible.
