All re-arrange under varying install site, conditions, YOUR CHOICE OF SETTINGS, firmware versions and if we include support the winner changes daily.

ALL those you listed are names I've installed in the last decade excep for ARUBA. So I'll arrange all but ARUBA as number one and put ARUBA as item 2.

Hope this helps.

All are fine devices and companies and the winner will change depending on site, install location, settings and which tech support person you call.

ARUBA is not a name I've encountered in decades of setting up networks.

So that's the problem. If you haven't been doing this for long you may think there is a good to best ranking. The truth is deeper than that.

Cisco still rules the roost when it comes to top notch staffers.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
