I have gigs now..
Yesterday at the office I used the excuse of a temporarily frozen switch to upgrade our switches to 10/100 to gig switches... and for the first time.. my server popped up with a "Hey I'm now running at 1000 speed"
..now we'll see if I have machines that notice the speed difference. I don't have everyone running gig cards..but we're getting more and more machines with gig nics. The switches have IP addresses.. We've gone from a day where these suckers where just boxes that I plugged in and didn't care about.. to where there's a username/password in there. (and sorry folks .. I changed it from a default of "admin" so you are out of luck). I made sure that they have IP addresses that are in my static IP address range of 10.0.0.2-10.0.0.9 (I'm still using that old fashioned 4.5 addressing range otherwise it would be a 192.168.16.x range).
And then looking inside the Interface.. dang... I'm looking at a ton of software under the hood these days on those switches.
