Re: Why do we accept flaky network hardware?

Riiiight - so you want absolutely all networks, from the most basic home network, to the most complex enterprise network to be installed by a professional. That's not going to fly with Mrs Miggins linking her router and two computers at home.

For all its faults <n>BaseT Ethernet works well for most people, 10Base2 was an abomination.
