Your hub/switch/router determines the speed of your LAN :tazz:

You can only transfer as many Mbps as the slowest piece of hardware in your lan. For example if you have 100mb nics in all your machines and the router is capable of transferring 1000mb, it doesn't matter because the nic's can only go 100, so you will be bottlenecked at 100. Same with the internet if your ISP only gives you 5mbps and you have a 108mb wireless connection to your router you will only browse the internet at a maximum of 5mb, most likely arount 4 - 4.5 though.
