    I actually came up with an HP transceiver that proves my own point
invalid. It's about the size of a zippo cigarette lighter, but a little
thicker. It's a model# 28685B Ethertwist transceiver and it has dip
switches to enable SQE, Link and Loopback test as well as use of a long
cable. It also has 6 status LEDS near the 10base-T connector. I do have a
small 5-port hub that isn't much larger than some of the AAUI transceivers I
have though.
