....With respect to the 16 port non-blocking switch, there are going to be a terribly small number of homes that have more than an 8-port switch. Heck, I don't have more than that (yet). I'll probably swap out at the homerun for a 16-port soon, just so that all rooms can be connected and never have to worry about moving around cables if I need to. I've had to do that once in the 6 years I've been in this house.
What? We don't all have a 24 port like me? Heck, if I ran the last few drops I have in mind, if it weren't for the wireless and using the Airport Extreme as another wired switch, it wouldn't be enough. Well, more judicious use of my patch panel would probably get me thru. But I'm lazy. I'd rather throw hardware at it and rarely move a cable.
I did, however, forgo a wired drop to the refrigerator etc when we redid the kitchen. Decided if that ever became a useful idea, it'd be wireless anyway.

Interesting!!! So who's going to force it to a 10 megabit connection and see if it still works?
I just forced it through a pair of slinglinks which were only pushing 2 MBps, then I tried a USB wireless adapter. Both worked flawlessly on my Joeys.
