"Most home lans are still 10/100?"

Absolutely. DSLR and it's readers do NOT represent the majority of homes it represents a very small section of what people really have.

I'd say that close to half of the small businesses I work with are still 10/100. They may use gigabit to link switches together, or to plug their servers in, but the workstations are still plugged into 100mbit/s ports. And why not? Gigabit switches are becoming more and more affordable, but fast ethernet switches are cheaper yet, and they comfortably meet the needs of many customers.

It's hard to convince a customer they need a gigabit switch for a network that's total usage isn't even 10mb.
