Does anyone here know much about gigabit ethernet adapter's? Specifically, I want to know it I can use a crossover rj45 to hook up two systems. Also, does anyone know what brand would work well? On Pricewatch I see the addtron brand, the Ark brand, and the dlink brand board....I know d link has a repution of some sort...but they are a bit more expensive....anyways, the reason I'm going for gigabit is that I want to do hi-resolution video frame-serving from one of my pc's to another.....100mbit is simply not enough.....

Hi,

We are using a crossover cable between the GigE ports on 2 Dell PowerEdge 2550's here at work. Worked fine, first time. The Dells use a Broadcom chip - I haven't used any others so can't comment on brands.

We have two of our Macs using a crossover cable. Works great.
