Hello all.

I have a client who currently has 3 seperate vonage routers (Motorola VT 2442-VD) behind a Zyxel router(Prestige 964). I am looking into getting them a smart switch to put inbetween the Zyxel router and the Vonage routers to handle traffic more efficiently. I dont need anything to expensive, and have found some around the 300.00 range. Can anyone reccommend something that will work in this situation. They have 9 PC's, so I think a 16 port should be fine for now. Thanks guys!

This Netgear Switch is the one i am leaning towards. Anyone have any experience using one of these?

For VoIP the features you should look for are :-

VLAN support
QOS so you can prioritise the voice packets
POE

The netgear supports all of these so it would be a good choice.
