i would like to build a gigabit network to connect the different computers at my home. I already have an 100Mb adsl router/modem but i have an hard time to find a 1000Mb one, so i came up with the idea of using a normal 1000Mb router or switch to put between the adsl modem and the computers. So i only use the adsl modem to connect to the internet and the gigabit router as dhcp to connect the different computers.
But to get to the question. Will the 100Mb adsl router slow down my network? Will data travel like pc > gigabit router > computer or pc > gigabit router > adsl router > gigabit router > pc.
My gut says it will go like in the first option but i have seen network hardware do some weird stuff.
What do you think?
