comment getting cisco on the net
Do you have NAT set up? Your DSL gateway will, probably, only allow NATing for a 192.168.1.0/24, so you will need to NAT yout 100.0.0.0/8 netblock into that (then to get NATed again, as it egresses through your DSL router). I'd also consider changing the 100/8 network to a /16 out of 172.16/12

comment Any thoughts on 6 inch ethernet patch cables?
I don't believe there's a spec for minimum distance in the xBase-T standards, but there is a practical shortest limit that depends on the equipment. There are minimum distances between taps on 10Base-5 and I believe there is a minimum distance between T-connectors in 10Base-2. However, I doubt those are frequently deployed, these days (and I suspect most legacy installatiopns have been converted by now).

comment Need reasonably priced router with QoS support
Unless you're doing connection-tracking (like, say, NAT), the number of simultaneous TCP connections is pretty much a non-issue. What aggregate bandwidth are you expecting?

comment What are your best senior level Linux interview questions
It at least used to be the case that editing config files in AIX did not result in daemons changing behaviour, as they picked up the config from a binary database, instead of the plain-text config file.

comment Looking for a network tester that can measure the speed of one cable
@Martin: In that case, I suspect Fluke have one or more suitable devices in the USD 1000+ cost range
