DECA is a hub, not a switch. It has few, if any of the features that distinguish a switch from a hub. It is the switch that you plug your Broadband DECA into that lends its switch-like functionality to DECA.


Exactly how does plugging DECA into a router cause DECA to suddenly have switch-like characteristics when (according to you) it didn't have these characteristics prior to being plugged into the router? DECA doesn't magically become something else just because you've connected an Ethernet cable to a router.

It doesn't impart switch-like behavior inside the cloud. Hooking up a switch prevents normal LAN traffic not destined for the cloud from reaching the cloud. It can also cut down on traffic leaving the cloud that doesn't need to.

And the Broadband DECA does just that. That is the whole point of creating the DECA cloud: traffic belonging on the cloud stays in the cloud while traffic not for the cloud stays off the cloud. Hence, the reason why you are not supposed to set it up so that regular home network traffic sent through the cloud (the idea of hooking up other devices to the cloud).
