R8169 chip based cards stopped working with this Switch

Summary: I've yet to figure out why, but a couple of months ago my computer lost all network access when talking with this switch until I change to 100MB, and even then that wasn't consistent. Same reaction to both ports on my PC. I haven't added anything to the switch to cause this trouble, nor have I used new drivers. The switch must have gone bad (bought less than a year ago). Others on the net are having similar troubles. Sad.
Summary: I just wanted to extend my utter frustration with the RV0041 router. This is the same as the SD2008, just less ports. I spent more than $250 for this router when I bought it, thinking it would be all I ever needed. Only a few months after owning it, the already LOUD internal fan started sounding like a jet engine. I contacted Linksys support and was sent a replacement through the RMA process.
Performance is adequate, but the noise level is not!

Summary: I ran a series of benchmark tests comparing this switch to three others. -Compared to a four year old Netgear 10/100 switch, the Linksys was able to transfer data about 8 times faster. -Compared to a Cisco 10/100 eight port microswitch, the Linksys gigabit switch was a little more than 5 times faster. That is quite impressive performance considering it is an $85 gigabit switch compared to the $375 Cisco 100 megabit switch.
Summary: (Original Review): Geez, the unbelievable fan noise! It really is, as another reviewer put it, as loud as a 10-year-old PC. I'd actually put it as loud as a 20-year-old PC! (Two Weeks Later): Interestingly, the noise has subsided dramatically after several weeks of ownship. It's completely unobjectionable now. I don't know if the fan bearings have worn away some rough spots, or what, but it's quiet, and still very cool, temperature-wise.
Summary: Nachdem dieser Switch hier so gute Bewertungen bekommen hat, dachte ich, mit dem Teil nicht falsch zu liegen. Von wegen. Der Switch wird nicht nur warm, sondern heiß und versorgt meine Tischplatte mit laufender Oberhitze, so daß es nur eine Frage der Zeit ist, wann die Tischplatte unansehnlich wird.
Summary: Der Switch mag zwar leise sein, da ohne Lüfter. Das Netzteil jedoch ist ein nicht mehr zeitgemässes Trafonetzteil mit einem relativ hohen Ruhestromverbrauch. Vergleichbare Switche anderer Hersteller mit Schaltnetzteil verbrauchen nur ca. die Hälfte. Linksys gegen 3Com getauscht.
