Final Thoughts

 

The TEG-240WS is intended as an enterprise class product, but it has some significant performance improvements that make it work in a LAN Party setup or in a mixed home network for the enthusiast or Pro-Sumer. Advanced features like Jumbo Frame, Trunking, IGMP and VLANs make it a very versatile product.

 

The VLAN feature makes it practical to use as a single solution for a home office, home network, console network setup while the TEG-240WS' processor has the power to keep all of those networks running at top speed.

 

As the lines blur between what was formerly an enterprise only configuration and what we see in the future for home networks, products like the TEG-240WS will find their way into more and more homes. The price tag of249.99 USD will be a small price to pay for the features and functions, while products like Windows Home Server, Sage Media Server and other home media servers will only serve to quicken the trip of the TEG-240WS and its smaller bother, the 16-port TEG-160WS into the home.
