One of these things is not like the others

I thought something was a bit odd ’round here…

The first result is from a D-Link GGS-108 8-Port Gigabit switch that I’ve been using only for the test servers connected to my NUC.  The second result is from a TrendNet TEG-S80G 8-port Gigabit switch that handles traffic for the rest of my home.

The TrendNet switch connects the NUC, DNS/DHCP, Router, my main workstation and an uplink to a switch in the living room that hosts the TV, Wii, and so forth.  Obviously, it’s time to buy a new switch that is NOT made by TrendNet.  The ~320Mbps speed is what I’ve been getting for a long while now from that cheap-o switch.  I should have used the D-Link for the home lan when I re-cabled.
