Gigabit Network


Recommended Posts

Well, guys. For my Birthday I gave myself a gigabit home network. W00T

Got me a couple Netgear GA311 NIC's and a SMC 8505T switch. All support Jumbo Frames (whatever the hell that is?). My Main Dually workstation has IntelPro Gigabit onboard.

I installed it all and got file sharing working through the Gigabit cards instead of the 100 cards and onboard. Now I can transfer files from my PVR to my Workstation at 33 MB/second+!!! Yes 33+ MegaBytes not bits! Really helps with those large .mpg and .avi files. Under 4 minutes for 5 GB files instead of 15-20 minutes on 10/100.

I love technology!
