LinkSys Gigabit Switch Differences

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Harald Striepe, Aug 24, 2003.

  1. LinkSys has two 8 port Gigabit switches
    - EG0801W
    - EG008W

    It is not clear to me from their doc, how one is better than the other.

    Any suggestions?

    It should be quite clear:

    EG0801W: 1 Gbps Full Duplex Switch Port and 8 10/100Mbps
    Auto-Detect Half/Full Duplex Switch Ports
    ie: the only gigabit link is the uplink port, the (8) client-side ports are
    10/100 only.


    EG008W: Eight 10/100/1000Mbps, half/full duplex, switched ports
    This switch has eight ports. Connect them any which way you like, they are all
    capable of gigabit operation.

    cheers

  3. Duh...
    It would be nice, if the marketing verbiage in the data sheets was just a
    bit more explicit...

    But, still - I should have caught that.
    Thanks...
