First, let me tell you that I am not really a big fan of NetGear. I find their products lacking in performance, and they tend to fail a lot more than Cisco switches. Saying that, though, I checked out their ' Network Management Software ' and was impressed with what I saw. I am just going to post some screens of this piece of software because it is relevant to me interests. First off, you need NetGear switches and/or routers. You can use this without NetGear merchandise, but I am sure that there are better programs out there.
