Well, the cage shouldn't be $200. I think they are usually listed for
~$100 BIN. I have some Netgear cards, an octane with a cage, and a switch
to connect it too, but the cards are in Vancouver and I am not.

I can try to see if they are being used and have one shipped back here and
test it out for you.
