    Question about home set up with wireless router & extra switch

    My mate has a 108 wireless router which has 5 LAN ports on it. He has just bought a 300gb NAS storage box for his network. The NAS ha a 1gb NIc and his two PC in his one office have 1GB NIC as well. He is thinking buying a 5 po1GB switch which will be then hard wired back to the router in the other office.


    If he connects both PCs with 1GB nics and also connects the storage server to the !GB switch as well, will the then transfer data between the 3 at 1GB? I know the link from the 1GB switch is going back to a 100mb router but surely the traffic between those 3 devises will travel at 1gb?

    I know any other machines on the LAN will not because they will be wired/wireless through the router


    can someone confirm this for me please?

    If they have a gigabit nic and are connected to a gigabit switch communicating with another device which has a gigabit NIC then they will transfer as fast as they can upto a gig. Other factors involved will be the speed of the disks etc.

    Yes, all connected to that switch will be at 'upto' 1GB speed

    another factor to consider is the wireing. Cat 6 wireing has a maximum theoretical limit of 90mtrs
