I just noticed that (after getting much valuable insight though the answers) this question was flagged as off topic:
Before posting I tried to check the help center, and found this (emphasis mine):
Server Fault is for questions about managing information technology systems in a business environment.
- managing the hardware or software of servers, workstations, storage or networks
After reading this I felt fairly confident that it was a good fit. I am not too interested in analyzing why/how it got closed, but am mostly curious on where to put it or whether it seens salvageable in a reasonable way.
What else did I check: Later in the help center, a pointer is given to Super User for questions about 'general networking'. However from the Super User help center, it is specified as such:
- personal and home computer networking
I think this question is more relevant for corporate networking than personal networking.
