[ipv6hackers] Best Network Tap - for home

I recommend the following:
Dualcomm DCSW-1005, 5 Ports, FastEthernet, 76$, USB powered and can not
be configured :-)
Cisco SG200-08, 8 Ports, Gigabit, 99$, full feature blown

I prefer the Dualcomm because its smaller and USB powered. And compared
to the Cisco SG one, you can still send data, on the Cisco you can just
Rx on the configured mirror port.
But the Dualcomm is harder to get and they tend to have a very long
delivery (at least to Europe, 6-10 weeks).

@Gert: I consider 76$ not that expensive, your option is just 53$ though
and compares more to the more expensive Cisco SG200 one.

(all prices from amazon.com)
