The 15-pin ethernet connector with a sliding latch has been the point of
failure for more problems on my networks than all other problems combined.
The problems have gotten even worse recently. It seems that in search of the
extra buck, most companies are using thinner and weaker sheet metal on the
sliding lock. This bends and causes intermittent problems. Do yourself a
vavor and don't propigate this abomination to another hardware set.
