Some devices (hub, transceiver, etc.) that are needed for building a
network do not come in a dust–proof construction. Using such devices
in an atmosphere where they are subjected to dust or oil mist will interfere
with communications or damage the Ethernet board. Be sure to install
such devices in a dust–proof cabinet.
