I'll be vacationing down there sometime in the next month and I was
wondering if someone could recommend some competitively pricing computer
stores in the area, particularly for cheap NICs (PCI, 10/100base T) and
hubs (4port is good enough for me, but also 10/100) to be used with a
Linux router and Linux clients (one windows machine too, actually)?
I'm using a 3Com 905 TX right now and it's working great, but I plan to
setup a network in my house and I'll be needing more NICs and I understand
DEC(?) NICs are great with Linux, but unfortunately, nobody around here
I also understand that if planning to use NICs which use the tulip
drivers, I must be careful in choosing the chipset model as some are
mislabelled as carrying the chipset supported by the tulip driver when in
fact they're not? Can someone please expand on that for me?
All in all, I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could point me to some
competitive stores to fulfill my goals in the L.A. area as the only stores
I know down there are Circuit City and CompUSA. Thank you very much in
