I have two Computers within 2 meters of each other. I need to connect both of them. Now I have two options:
1) connect both of them directly via a lan cable 2) connect both of them to a common router via lan cable.
Now I would prefer the second option to access Internet in both computer through router. But what I want to know is whether I'll be making data transfer sacrifice with this option.
My primary objective is maximum data transfer speed between two computers. I want to know how much of hit in data transfer speed will I take if I connect computers through router. I have a ADSL router and let me know what other information I need to provide about the router to answer this query.
