Notes on the core switch build and configuration...

  • Cisco/Linksys E4200 v1
  • two for redundant operation
  • a third as a cold spare
  • higher-capacity power supplies
  • heatsinks and thermal adhesive for switch chips
  • DD-WRT standard
  • custom switch driver to allow 802.1q VLAN tag remapping

  • with modern iceweasel/firefox use Web Developer Extension -> Miscellaneous -> Clear Private Data -> Clear HTTP Authentication
