Netgear make damned nice switches, as unmanaged switches go. The FS516
10/100 16-port switch I bought ... oh ... jeez, must be four years ago
now has never given me a day's trouble in its life. And, despite all
the horror stories people have told me of duplex mismatches with hmes
unless forced FDX, that includes not one single duplex mismatch ever.
(OpenBSD doesn't seem to be able to handle a hme in an LX, but that's
another problem altogether.)
