Thanks for comment, but no, I haven't tried that. Given the experiment
you suggest will probably give degraded performance, I am resigned to
re-jigging the installed cable and connectors to achieve a topology more
in spec. I am aiming to keep full 100mbs duplex because another goal of
the lan is a discless/thin client setup using either LTSP or DRBL.
Latency would be very noticeable in such a setup.
