The only 10/100 Mbps component in my home wired network is the modem. Can I use a 1Gbps switch and the layout attached to allow my local home PCs and storage devices to connect at 1Gbps? Any other advice on optimisation appreciated. munster-shug 16:57 25 Nov 2016 Sorry.

I think it'll work just fine. The network switch should allow your Ethernet-connected devices to bypass the router and connect @ 1Gbps.
