It's a 16-port switch with an 8K-entry MAC cache and a 512 KB packet
buffer.  Shouldn't have any problems routing the packets between any
two machines in my home network. ;-)

Besides, as far as I can tell, the problems started when I started
upgrading the client systems from something like 1.5W to 1.6beta or
so.  No hardware or network changes were made.
