    Great information. I have a lot to learn and the gold has become my new hobby ... qq what is the capacity of the ports on the gold router?  Are they Gigabit? or higher?  The reason I ask is I am considering upgrading my Access Point to the TP Link EAP660 HD with a 2.5 Gbps Ethernet Port and was wondering if my gold router can take advantage of that or is limited to 1Gbps at each port?  TIA

    All the ports on the Gold are gigabit.  But do remember, the Gold is a router, so it should not interfere with traffic on your local network.   This means unless you have > 1gigabit internet (at the time of this message, >gigabit speed internet is not popular), you should NOT have any issues with your network.

    So, if you want to take advantage of that 2.5Gbit for LAN, you will need a switch that's 2.5Gbit capable in front of Firewalla Gold, which your EAP660 connects to.   But before doing any of this, make sure the EAP660 can output >gigabit.   (To do this test, you may want to have several devices transferring at the same time).
