Hrm, well, for $150 I got me an 8 port 10/100 _switch_ and two 100Mbit 
cards.  I got it at the Melbourne Showground computer swap meet.  The 
switch was $99.  It's a Sky Link Net1008.  Bloody snappy and lets me get 
files from my Samba server at over 3MBytes a sec.  The coax is now - 
defunct.  I'll never go back to 10Mbit, NEVER!  And neither will you if you 
get one!

Has anyone seen wireless gear at the swap meets?
