Do you have any information on the topology and/or architecture of modern 
ethernet switches? I looked for some information on this subject but was 
unable to find any. I would expect these switches to be a dynamic network, 
like some sort of an omega network but correct me if I am wrong. The number 
of ports I'm talking about is >16, for instance the one we're using has 36 
100-BaseTX ports.
