I've had great luck with Dell's switches. We're a small office of 5 people and probably 16 or more desktops / servers / printers / etc on the internal LAN. 4 years ago I put in an inexpensive Dell PowerConnect 2024 24 port 10/100 switch; it worked for years without a glitch. Last January, realizing most our stuff was gigabit-capable, I replaced it with a Dell PowerConnect 2724 for ~ $270 USD. 24 ports, all 10/100/1000 plus add-on fiber x'cvr capability on two ports.

No glitches in over 7 months now. -RW _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
