I have been using the RatPak 6 for the last 2 years without problems.  The
DXE switch is more robust (costs more) and has better isolation.  I settled
on the RatPak as all my outside connections use N connectors and DXE doesn't
offer N connectors ( I prefer not to use adapters) with their switch. YMMV
