Long Day's Journey into <Bleep>

It's been a long, long century. I've been down for 5 days.
Couldn't understand _why_ I couldn't ping anywhere [expect the
Server itself]. Finally, tho, it became more and more likely that
my FreeBSD was fine ... even tho I kept stripping the most likely
problem points. My large 16-port LinkSys router was either *it* or
it was some kind of bug unknown to geekdom. After a friend bought
me a new (and tiny) 8-port switch, yes! I could ping everywhere.
I'm still bringing back the dozens of things I removed from ethic.
And testing new ideas. But I have a general question: have any of
you wizards who run your own domains or otherwise use a switch [or
hub] *ever* had it just-quit?! It is solid-state. Yes, the box is
within my feet/foot reach. I have accidently kicked it i suppose,
After wandering in the wilderness for 5 days, <<mmph>>, dunno.
PS: yes, this is a serious question. 1) I like things-Cisco, and
LinkSys. I just bought this switch about 2.5 years ago, so I really
am looking for feedback.
PPS: Another question to ask about upgrading is next.
