Not optimal in that I have to cascade the 2 5 ports off the 8 port, so I
lose ports that way. If I had been smart I would have bought a 16 port
to begin with, or at least two 8 ports. But I started with one 5 port,
then another, then the 8 port. I don't have GigE on everything, but I'd
rather be ready with the switch so that I can upgrade in stages.
