LAN Connection solution.
In order to connect a TGXL to my 6600M and Mac PC, I understand I will need a Network Switch, to accommodate the additional LAN cable, as both Flexradio items only come equipped with one LAN port. My Apple PC also only has one LAN port, so there is only one possible inter-connect between radio and PC. (I do not use the station connected to the internet, so will not have the “extra” LAN ports that my router has at the rear available to me).
Is there a “best solution” connection to be had? I really would not like to buy exclusively manufactured Chinese products if I can help it. Possibly an American made device? Over here in the UK the most compatible solution is a Netgear GS108, but it is manufactured in the Far East. Am I stuck for choice on this?
It would make a lot of sense to get a switch-box that needs a 12v dc supply, and the standard 2.1mm power socket, rather than a sometimes-found 5v.dc supply requirement. I can then run it from shack 12v (13.8v!!) power lines.
