I am currently running direct connections from my two desktop systems to my NAS which has a dual port Intel 10Gbit card. That works … but I want more.
10Gbit cards are affordable these days and work just fine without active cooling. So what about a switch then? So far I haven’t seen anyone offering a solution for this? Does that still not exist?
The closest I have seen so far are the two Buffalo switches, 8 and 12 ports, but loud. Maybe someone has done a mod on one of those?
I want: 8 ports or more, all 10Gbit, all RJ45, basically silent.
