Is there any real practical or benefit use of using a Juniper Router for home everyday use?
I was looking into getting a new router, I was thinking of trying something different.
It was either this or the new Netgear Wireless Router.

I have a wired PC and PS3, and wireless laptop and ipad 2.

On a home connection, no, there's no real benefit to using an enterprise router. Besides that, a Juniper router is not going to be a simple plug-and-play, point and click setup like a Linksys or Netgear, and you'd need a separate switch and wireless access point since a Juniper is not an all in one like most home routers. So if you're not already fluent in JunOS (the operating system of Juniper routers), you'd be in for a big learning curve for even the most basic setup.

On the other hand, if you have a need to learn JunOS, or you're a tinkerer and looking for your next challenge, then go for it.
