I've had a Linksys switch crap out. I've also had a Netgear switch die. In fact, there were three Netgear switches that died within a few months of each other. At first they would simply lock up at random. After that they didn't work at all. We later discovered it was a capacitor problem. (Google 'capacitor plague'.) We replaced it with a HP ProCurve switch a few years ago and it has been rock solid ever since. My only complaint is the proCurve has a very inaccurate internal clock, but that is easily remedied by configuring ntpd on it. So yeah, even solid state stuff can die! -Modulok- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
