I have one of these. It is a switch, with an amazing amount of
configuration stuff built into it. In theory you should be correct, but
I'm attempting to use a U1 to do my routing and thus have never tried
using the FDDI ports on my Lanplex. I should drag it out and try it
eventually (note, the lanplex is louder than an Octane. Call me a wimp,
but I can already hear my octane from any point in my apartment, I don't
need to add the noise of the lanplex right now).

And $10 is about all they are worth. I paid $26 for mine in 2001.
