Some Things just aren't meant to be (on Internet of Things networks). But we can work around that

Yes, the problem with many home and small office (and even some medium sized) networks is they employ networking devices which were designed for very simple networks, a few connected PCs and nothing more. Just look at how many "unmanaged" switches are on sales, and APs with VLAN and other advanced features are harder to find and more expensive.

Now the ever increasing number of connected devices would need to adopt more sophisticated designs - but the devices don't support them, and the design/configuration is much harder, and usually beyond the knowledge of most non IT people. It could be simplified by management software for less demanding environments, but no one cares...
