Subject: Looking for a good, $100 class 1G switch
I have just discovered that my 1G switch, a $40ish thing from Newegg
is doing bizarre things when I move files around here in my office. Overall
I seem to get 13M/sec, as opposed to 35M/sec if I hook the laptop directly
to another system. Worse, the data moves in fits and spurts, so I think I'm
overloading the little things brain.
Thus I ask if there are decent switches somewhere around $100 that
actually work at G speeds. For $300 I know I can get good stuff, but
cheaper? I have $100+ that I can spend.
