I know this is a simple and possibly stupid question but i'm not quite sure what to search up on google to find the right answer.
Basically i have a gigabit router (Dlink DIR 825) and have multiple laptops/clients connected to it (wired cat6/cat5e ethernet) and was wondering about the total speed the router can transfer at once:
eg, if i had 4 computers connected (wired, all on gigabit speeds) and transferred a 1 GB file from Computer A to computer B while transfering a file from computer C to D all at the same time, would both a + b, c + d bandwidth be halved (eg, 500 Mbps)? or would both A-B, D-C get a chance at 1Gbps? (Yes, i'm aware that 1Gbps is the theoretical "up to" speed of gigabit ethernet and that HD, NIC, Computer specs can all effect the actual speed)
Please comment if i'm not explaining this clearly.
All answers are appreciated.
