I was on NewEgg.com earlier and noticed that have 10/100/1000 mbps NICs and
are now offering 10/100/1000/2000 mbps NICs. Yet they do not offer any 2000
mbps switches and I've never heard of 2000 mbps networks. Am I missing
something here?

Thanks!

Gigabit ethernet is 1000 Mbps full duplex, which is 1000 Mbps in each
direction. Some companies like to advertise that as 2000 Mbps, which is
somewhat misleading.

Since twisted pair ethernet is full duplex by default, devices advertising
10/20, 100/200 and 1000/2000 (or any combinations thereof) are the same.

Scott.
