Switched a Switch

Today I had to come in early to change out a 24-port 10/100/1000 switch to a 48-port 10/100/1000 switch.

 Now I know that technically, this is not a big deal and is pretty straight forward, but let’s keep in mind that a year ago I was a desktop tech who hardly knew what a switch looked like.  Today I am installing them.  I have made progress, even if it is in baby steps.

We got a Netgear GSM7248 Managed Switch from Newegg.com and it was here in two days with standard shipping.  I game with easy to follow instructions and so far has been great.  Now I need to watch it and lable all of the connections, which will take considerably longer than it did to install it.

I will keep posting as to how this switch is doing, but we only paid $1,160 for this switch.
