Here's some of the network GIG E hardware we'd like to recommend:

  AceNIC/NetGear GA620(T)/3C985B
  SysKonnect
  NS chipset:
     Cameo           SOHO-GA2000T    SOHO-GA2500T
     D-Link          DGE-500T
     PureData        PDP8023Z-TG
     SMC             SMC9462TX
     NetGear         GA622

=============================================================

For switches you might want to also look into top lines like HP, 3Com and
Cisco...because they offer government, educational, and medical
discounts(GEM).  There discounts are very agressive.  Cisco will also take
trade-ins on old equipment.
