When marking a question off-topic, may I recommend that you politely direct the OP to the correct stack exchange? Saying something like

Home networking is off topic here. You can ask this on Superuser.

will help them get the answer they're looking for.

Without a comment, I'm sure the OP has no clue what's wrong, and it gives a cold, unwelcoming feel to this SE, IMO.

  • Even better, consider defining site-specific off-topic close reasons for things like this. Look to Server Fault for what might be some relevant examples. – user Apr 24 '15 at 14:43
  • That's OK too, as long as we give some suggestion where the proper place for the question is. – Ron Trunk Apr 24 '15 at 15:49
  • My understanding, is that some of the more specific off-topic close reasons and migration options become available to us as we graduate beta. – Brett Lykins May 1 '15 at 15:52
