| There is usually one built in to the ADSL modem with 4 ports.
in this case, the ADSL modem is not mine, but part
of the package, to be returned if/when I cancel.
with that, plus the desire to test beforehand, plus
throughput issues such as those you highlighted, and
possibly other reasons including low cost (c.10€),
it seemed sensible to just get a (5-port) 10/100
switch and be done with it.
( as it so happens, I've since discovered the printer
(my test peer) apparently detects the cable, so my
original switch-less plan of using a straight cable
probably would have worked (not verified). )
thanks & cheers!
