Managed Ethernet switches A major difference between managed and unmanaged switches is control. A managed switch lets you adjust each port on the switch to any setting you desire, enabling you to monitor and configure your network in many ways. It also provides greater control over how data travels over the network and who has access to it. Managed switches generally offer Simple Network Management Protocol, which enables you to monitor the status of the switch and individual switch ports and gives you statistics like traffic throughput, network errors and port status.

So why are we telling you to change that around if 2.4GHz is so lovely? Well, truth be told, almost all wireless devices use the same frequency, such as Joy-Con, Pro Controllers, wireless controllers for ‘other’ systems, your phone, anything with bluetooth, it’s all 2.4GHz, and that gets very messy very quickly.
