There is OpenWRT, ddWRT, etc. for routers which adds tons of capabilities to your "simple" home router.

Are there any linux distros to "convert" an unmanaged switch into a managed one?


So far as I know unmanaged switches simply don't have anything in them to do the processing involved. There's nothing to program.
