I found a nice feature on the Netgear GS716T switch at home. The default management interface for the switch is a webinterface, but thanks to a remark in the serverfault thread Managed Ethernet switch per-port MAC address translation? I found out it has a telnet interface on port 60000. Indeed, just type 'admin' at the wait remark and use the admin password:
$ telnet .... 60000
Trying ...
Connected to ....
Escape character is '^]'.

There are commands in the this interface which will instantly reboot the switch, taking quite some time to get networking back. Ooopsie..

I also upgraded the firmware to version 5.0.3.5 and that new firmware even has dhcp filtering available. Quite a nice switch for the money.
