I have what is hopefully a simple question. I'd like to know if any of the small business switches (e.g., the SRW2024) will work with AT&T uverse.
I have my house wired for gigabit, and am getting uverse installed this week. I have one gigabit (rj45) line running to where my TV is, but also about a half-dozen other devices there (game consoles, slingbox, etc).
So, I need switches that can route the video and audio uverse content over the same network as the data. Typically, I believe the AT&T installers just run direct cables for the TV's and hook them into the residential gateway. I would prefer to use the existing wires, rather than have them tear up my house (especially given where the TV is).
The UVerse gateway (as far as I can tell from reading) supports something like IGMPv3 (or, perhaps, based on some articles, IGMPv2 with fast join/leave) and (perhaps?) 802.1p for QoS routing of the IP video and audio.
Right now, I have a bunch of small cheap gigabit switches in the house, that are a few years (or more) old.
In order to have everything on the same network, I think I need IGMPv3; but, it's not clear. The only explicit recommendation for a switch I've found is for the Netgear GS105NA, but I'm keen to use a CISCO switch if I can (the reviews of the Netgear, for example, are horrible in terms of reliability).
