    HW firewall for home that supports IPV6 PD of /48 or /56 with DHCPV6

    OpenWRT supports all the IPv6 stuff you're asking for in the latest release. Buy any router supported by that version of OpenWRT. Personally I use an alix 2d13, works great.

    LF perfect DIY router. (ALIX, Soekris, Routerboard, something else?)

    I've done benchmarks previously. With OpenWRT it'll do around 50k packets/sec at 64 byte frame sizes. It will do line rate at higher (100meg) at larger frame sizes.

    LF perfect DIY router. (ALIX, Soekris, Routerboard, something else?)

    I've got several alix 2d13 boards. Rock solid. They run OpenWRT extremely well. A little light on memory for anything else. pfSense will run but the OS timers are not fast enough to do decent QoS on it. On Linux it smokes.

    Bonjour, Inter-VLAN routing and tears...

    This is not an "Apple" problem. This is a Bonjour protocol implementation detail. It's for local subnets, it's broadcast based, and uses multicast. You should look into wide-area discovery, this link, , has some information on it. could just have one...

    How to Block Social Networking Sites in Asus Router

    Of course it doesn't. If you change it to or then you aren't using OpenDNS any longer. You can either: 1. stop users from changing the DNS servers on the PC or 2. block requests to unknown DNS servers from getting out to the internet. i don't know if you router can do that.

    In that instance why not just use OpenDNS? It works.

    Amazon: Sound Blaster Z - $86.56

    Too bad Creative's drivers are absolutely shitty and always have been. Since the beginning of time. I didn't think people still bought stand alone sound cards.

    How does a L2 dwitch use DNS?

    Those look like management settings to me. So, a "dumb switch" like this could use DNS to: 1. check for software updates 2. use for NTP server sync 3. any number of other management related tasks It wouldn't use any DNS to do anything regarding actually switching traffic.

    How does a L2 dwitch use DNS?

    L2 switch won't use DNS unless the switch itself has a management IP address.

    Intel NIC Drivers Without Proset (Bloat?)

    Seems like asking for trouble to me. Do those extra PROset tabs add a bunch of bloat? I've been using the entire package for eons now and have never had any problems with them.
