We have an ADSL modem which has four 100 Mbps ports. In one of them we have a 20 port 100 Mbps switch where all the networking devices are currently connected. If I buy a gigabit switch and connect it to the ADSL modem, do I get any benefits? I thought something like this.
In the situation described in the image, is it possible to get 1 Gb transfer rate between "Server" and "2" PCs? What about if the server has 2 NICs, is it possible to get 1 Gb transfer rate between "Server", "2" and a third PC connected to the 1 Gbps switch when the NICs are teamed? I mean, if "2" and "3" would like to download stuff from the server, do they both get about 1 Gb transfer rates?
