thanks! yes we currently use several 4way and 8way ethernet cards but the boss
gets something under his skin to 'simplify' and winds up creating more
headaches and complication than is present now. he doesnt like the idea that
only certain specific switch ports can only be used with certain specific /24
networks and so there has to be a chart on the wall to identify the port
blocks vs lan segments.. he wants to have all ports on the switch handle all
vlans.. in my opinion that is far more of a mess than what we use now.
