Network switch vs. multilayer switch[edit]

I did some cleanup in network switch, then went to multilayer switch and became confused at a level beyond that of mere switch versus router (or bridge). Again, I really think we need to reduce the number of articles dealing with marketing terms, and have a relatively small number of terms that lead to one another. I would like to see a content switching expert become involved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hcberkowitz (talkcontribs)

route redistribution[edit]

I began an article on route redistribution (which got speedily deleted). It is only a stub, derived from the lead of router (computing) to explain what routers do so that non-technical readers will know what the article is about. The "meat" of the article is yet-to-be-written, but if you would like to start it, you're more than welcome.

In addition, I added some information about routing to the router (computing) article before I discovered the routing article. To help readers, I then added wikilinks between the 2 articles. Bwrs (talk) 15:44, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Proposed deletion of Core router (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Core router (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unnecessary disambiguation page per WP:TWODABS. A hatnote is sufficient for those looking for the minor use.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Tavix (talk) 20:36, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
