Network question


I was wondering if anyone could answer me this. Will i get gigabit speeds on my network if everything except the router is gigabit?

I have gigabit NICīs,gigabit switch and cat 7 cables, but my isp has sent me their "new" hardware for use with their internet connection,but the switch in this combined modem/router/ 4 port switch is only fast ethernet.

My question is, will i obtain gigabit speeds on everything connected to my own gigabit switch,if i use their router/modem thingy? Or should i disable both switch/firewall and DHCP in my isp hardware,and connect my own gigabit router?

As far i i can gather the isp hardware can work solely as a modem and router to the internet leaving my internal network using my gigabit switch,am i correct in this asumption?
