Re: 802.1p without VLAN tag?

Some postings in this forum suggest, that VLAN-ID of 1 is used internally by ROS as the default when no VLAN-ID is set. Setting VLAN-ID=0 is nowhere allowed (as far as I know) in ROS. I would like a different aproach: Make VLAN-ID of 0 the internal default when no VLAN-ID is set and allow for settin...

Re: Large Apartment, no Ethernet

I have connected two appartements by POTS (plain old telephone system) wires using a pair of G.HN modems giving about 500Mbit/s combined up+down. Formerly I used a pair of VDSL modems for this giving 100/100 with profile 30a.

Unfortunately none of this hardware is made by MT.
