[plug] Need a new switch

G'day all,

Reaching out to the collective wisdom here.

I need more bandwidth on a segment of my network. I have a Linksys 
SRW2008P in front of my server, with 2 bonded gigE ports into it. That's 
no problem as the fan in the switch can't be heard over the fan in the 

Unfortunately I need to have a switch in the house that supports link 
aggregation. Does anyone know of a fanless gig switch that supports link 
aggregation and is vaguely affordable?

I've toyed with the idea of grabbing another SRW2008P and replacing the 
internal fan with a slowed down 80mm unit, but this is one switch that 
is a pain to manage as it is IE only. I'd rather something more modern 
and fanless if I can get it.
