Gigabit switch arrived today. Installation was nice and simple – a 15 minute job. Looks good in the rack too. I like the Netgear kit – still has steel casing, so it feels like it has substance.
I went mad and ordered a new rack-mountable 24 port Gigabit switch. Should arrive early next week; should be simple change control. As an aside – I used Microsoft Live Search with Cashback! $13 in my pocket 😉
