Yes, both PCs have gigabit NICs. The main point though was that the switch is unmanaged. I was worried you would need a managed switch in order to do this.

Well, I tried it and hey presto, it works (at least with the GBE PC).

Right, so it'll work even if the crossover cable is plugged into a wall socket, which attaches to a patch cable connected to the router? And it won't fry anything? Cheers :)
