I was just handed this sweet switch, 32 mac addr table, one meg packet buffer....so on and so forth. SPAMI know switched networks were designed to increase speed, and the (moderatly) increased security was a side effect. SPAMAnyways this FS3208 Asante switch will fail open ( = broadcast all packets just like a hub) when flooded with random, invalid mac addr's. SPAMI was just wondering if anyone knew of a switch or manufacturer of switches that do not fail open. SPAMOr maybe a neat way to modify my switch?

Thanks a lot....
