Yeah, it seems like these switches are getting cheaper. I'm glad. 10gb took so very long to get here for us. I just wished 10gb ethernet had caught up. Thing is, now that my whole network is fiber, I might stay on fiber. No reason to spend more to switch back, especially when fiber uses less power than ethernet anyway.

Sorry Ethernet. I liked you, I really did, but your greed and cost of adoption and refusal to bring us faster speeds after over ten years has made me turn away, never to return.

You lost a customer in me.

Whatchu talkin' bout Wilson? Heheh, Im Gary Oldman. But seriously, Whatever do you mean my good sir? Surely you jest. That's my job my good sir! Fiber is not Ethernet, Ethernet isnt Fiber. Have I entered the Twilight zone, or perhaps, The Scary Door?

It is all Ethernet you are just thinking 10Gbase-SR/DA Fiber/DAC SFP+ vs. 10Gbase-T Copper UTP/STP CAT5/6/7 RJ-45

10 Gigabit Ethernet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

oh hohhhoohhh! Well excuse me guys....here i thought the switch was fiber/sfp+

Ok, ok, so yeah, yeah, the protocol is there. True, But.... the data is sent through light pulses not copper cabling....

ah shit......nevermind.....

I am currently using DACs.

Shit on a stick with rice and beans!

Damn you Netgear! (shifts focus to Netgear for pricing their 10gbe switches for $750)

Lets all be mad at Netgear damnit!

Just kidding. They are actually doing a great thing by actually releasing a decently somewhat affordable switch for the masses. But still though! I wanna be mad at Ethernet for taking so long to get here in 10gb form. At least for us the consumer that is.

I know it was abit unrealistic some years ago, but boy did I want 10gb, and now I have it thanks to Quanta. Im so grateful I wont be going back to Ethernet cabling.

See what I did there?

Thanks guys for the corrections. I appreciate it! Its how I continue to grow me knowledge. You guys are awesome! Love this damn forum!

Oh yeah its ETHERNET and TCP/IP. You kids might have not known about X.25 of the yester years. So all you see is ehternet and some magic.

My offer of 275 + 25 shipping got accepted by the seller OP linked. I have the switch with me for a week now.
The funny thing is r2disassemblyllc and natex.us are the same people. So you should be rolling the dices the same at both the tables. Beware!!! And buying from natex.us isn't that good (5% discounts are not much). When the same stock hits eBay, you have the bargaining power.

Is there a command to commit VLAN changes? I created some VLANs but when I turned the switch back on again after disconnecting the power for a day everything was blank again. Isn't it supposed to be committed to flash? Or is my battery dead?

Edit: Nvm I realised I didn't "write memory". Silly me.

Is there a similar command for "no switchport" on the LB6M? Trying to configure 0/28 with an uplink to the internet router. The manual has a whole plethora of "switchport xxx" commands which don't seem to be what I'm looking for. "The no switchport command makes the interface Layer 3 capable. The IP address is in the same subnet as the default router."

Switch(config)#interface FastEthernet 0/1
Switch(config-if)#no switchport
Switch(config-if)#ip address 200.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
Switch(config-if)#no shutdown
