Hi,

I am wondering whether the following switch will work with the
X1141A/X1140A Gigabit ethernet NICs;

The switch supports RJ45 and multimode fibre connections.

Thanks and regards,
Andrew

I've not followed the eBay link, but do have some experince from years
ago with Alteon 180's - be sure to realize those RJ45's are 10/100BT
only - they do _NOT_ do GbE speeds. The RJ45's sit atop the fibre
connections, and you can use either the RJ45, or the corresponding
fibre connection but not both.
