How about an unpowered hub instead of a switch? (not sure how much luck
would have finding a hub these days but may get lucky)

Would solve your mirroring problem along with not needing any power from
USB or anything else.

I hope this is appropriate question here, be gentle, first post :)
Does anyone know if there is a device available that could be powered
say buy USB port on a laptop that would have a small amount of RJ45
ethernet ports that would act as a switch, and one port being able to
mirror an ethernet port. The idea being, for it to be used for customer
site to do an on-the-spot port mirror for packet captures etc..
I've tried googling, I can find a number of usb powered 4port switches,
but nothing there for port mirroring.
Any ideas appreciated.
