Anybody on our list who can tell me how to set a Netgear GS108T 8 Port 
Smart Switch (Gigabit) to pass thru to a modem under FreeBSD. I have 2 
other (non Smart) ones working with FreeBSD just fine in my rack and 
need to  have the new one connect with a DSL modem on a static address.

The instructions they sent me along with the switch that was a 
replacement for a non smart one at no charge is the type for using a 
DHCP service on Microsoft. (I cant complain about the up grade but its 
over kill for my purpose.

Any help would be appreciated.
