hehe, if you *dont* put them on UPS, cant you use those brownouts as "free" reboots that you dont have to drive in to take care of? and it gets them all at once!! (kidding!) i too have had great success with used 3com equipment from ebay. i had a major problem with one of the 6 24port'rs that i bought for my lan party, and they honored the warranty, even after who-only-knows how old they were. and, ive since sold those switches to a different lan party, and they are still operating as reliably as when i picked them up in 2000-2001. cheers, -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
