1 WH Server
1 Wireless Laptop
I transfer lots of movie and music files between them.
It can only get speeds up to 12MB/s PC to PC.
Is there anyway I can get a gigabit network switch and connect it too all my PCs and my router and then get 100MB/s between PCs?
Someone on a different site confirmed this. But I want to make sure its accurate before I do anything.
I read that I could plug in both the desktops and the server to the Gigabit switch then the router and get 1000Gigabit speeds locally.
If this is true will I still be able to access shared folders on my Windows Home Server from my Wireless laptop that is connected to a router.
Also I have DD-WRT on my router would it be possible to see all the LAN connections even if they are wired to the switch and not the router but the router is wired to the switch as well?
Any suggestions on which switch I should get?
I was looking at:
NETGEAR GS108 for the switch and
2x TRENDnet TEG-PCITXR 10/ 100/ 1000/ 2000Mbps PCI Copper Gigabit Network Adapter
Trying to keep the pricing under $85
