Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Networking - Is a switch what I need?

JohnDoeJohnDoe Registered User
At the moment, I have 2 desktops connected via ethernet to my 10/100/Wireless ADSL router. A couple of other devices (phone/laptops) connect to the router wirelessly. Both my desktops have gigabit LAN connections though, and so I want to add something so they can connect to each at gigabit speeds.

So if I understand this correctly, all I need to is to drop a switch between them.

So it goes Desktop 1 -> Switch <- Desktop 2, and the Switch connects to the Router. Nothing else changes but now the 2 desktops can transfer stuff between them faster. Is this correct?
