The 3c905b and EtherExpress are pretty expensive at Dabs, ~49 and 57 pounds.
Scan do both much cheaper, they also do a SOHO 8 port switch
which is much cheaper than the intel that Dabs has. Originally I was a bit
suspicious of the brand but Paul said he liked ths SOHO stuff, what do other
All I have to do now is find a MOLEX 32-29-9202 - the kind of power
socket you find on ATX motherboards.

Subject: 100Mbit Ethernet recomendations
I'm just starting to sort my computers at home. Currently there
are two machines connected together with a crossover cable,
one has a 10mbit NE2000 compatible card, the other has a cheap realtek
I'm about to get a backup machine running and will probably buy a hub
or switch. I've seen a couple of suitable cheap switches designed for
or small office. There's a 3com 4 port 10/100mbit for approx 90 pounds
intel 8port+1uplink for approx 110 pounds. Unless someone
can recomend something better I'll get one of these.
But I'm not so sure about what card to get for the backup machine.
What is a good well supported, and not too expensive, 100mbit card
I'll probably be ordering from Dabs because they do the case I'm after.
They have both intel etherexpress and 3c905B cards but the prices appear
to be a bit higher than usual.
