Merge green Ethernet into EEE
Except for the useless marketing figures in the introduction, the article doesn't provide any figures. How much energy does a powered-up Ethernet transmitter use when idle? How does that compare to a transmitter in some low-power state? Jec (talk) 13:26, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Concepts section - using cat5 instead of cat3
Um, ok... who's been using cat3 for their 100mbit+ ethernet connections over the past 10+ years? Anyone? Anyone at all... come on, make yourselves known.
Using cat5 instead of cat3 may have been a useful power saver with compatible chipsets back in the 10mbit days, but that kind of cable, as far as I've been taught at least, can't even be used to transmit a reliable signal AT ALL with the higher data rates, let alone be the default cheaper but higher-consumption choice, and even cat5 is sort of old-hat unless you're chucking together a minimum cost 100mbit home network. We're all using cat5e and cat6, these days...
I propose deletion unless someone knows better and can explain exactly what's meant in that paragraph? (Before someone pipes "it's Ethernet Over Twisted Pair", remember that ALL 100mbit+ copper-cabled ethernet is "over twisted pair", using pseudo-RJ45 connectors...) 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:18, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
I think the current title may be misplaced:
- a) Energy Efficient Ethernet — original title, official, most common in refs, and Ethernet is always capitalised
- b) Energy-efficient Ethernet — would be the most correct grammatically (not treating as a proper noun)
We currently seem to have a mix of the two:
- c) Energy-Efficient Ethernet — changed from the original for grammatical reasons (and the alternative removed at that point)
