Yes, my DIR-615 blocks the icmp traffic also. Unfortunately, the Ooma Hub (which is in front of it) sees the incoming ping first and responds to it. There's no reason for this reply.

You're right, but there's a small problem. There AREN'T any "rest of the switches." The D-Link is it. It's got enough ports for all my PCs, and I don't want to add a switch downstream if I can help it (reasons given above).

EDIT: Addendum. Sorry, I probably mislead you. When I said I had a "gob of them" (switches) lying about, I should have made it clear they're just sitting in a box, unplugged! Not part of the LAN setup at all.

Hmm, that's an interesting suggestion. Sometime when I don't need my phone service up-and-running, perhaps I may try it.

As for the power usage, yes, it's only a few watts, but every little bit helps! I have a Kill-a-Watt P4400 and measure everything. It can make you become obsessive, that's for sure.
