One of the guys at the shop was cleaning out the warehouse and trowing boxes of stuff in the dumpster Well he brought this thing over to me and asked if I wanted it since he knew that I was "into" computers.

Heres what I know

Its a Tiex Daisy Booster, it has 2 ethernet ports in the front (one says SYNC the other says PORT) it has 3 LEDs on the Front (2 yellow, 1 red Sync Port and Power (red)) on the Decal on the back it says

LanOptics (Dallas TX)
Part #: T0DPPB03
Serial #: 710-002

and finally on the Circuit board it says

AS/3X Booster
Revision AX2


August 05 1997 (Date of manufacture)

What is it?? (I'm guessing a very old Ethernet Signal Booster) I Googled it and searched Wikipedia for it but got nowhere.

Wow! almost as old as I am the sync uses ethernet to plug into a hub (I have never tried it on a switch) the other that says PORT can be used to uplink to another hub or for an additional 120 foot ethernet cable direct to a computer. I used to use those for long cable runs in old wooden army buildings. we used to call them ethernet amps if i remember correctly, only 10BaseT worked through it.

E bay It. there is still a market for them.
