Fastest Wired Router

For a number of reasons I don't like wireless networks.

So with three computers and a bunch of peripeherals, I've got lots of ethernet cable running everywhere.

I am also certifiably insane.

For that reason, I swapped our all my CAT 5 cable with CAT 6 and therefore have the following question:

My router is a D-Link DGL-4100 4-Port GamerLounge Broadband Gigabit Gaming Router
Amazon.com: D-Link DGL-4100 4-Port GamerLounge Broadband Gigabit Gaming Router: Electronics

Since I need more ports, I added the NETGEAR PROSAFE 8-PORT ETHERNET DESKTOP SWITCH GS108 Newegg.com - NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)

It was the best at the time but is now a bit old. Would I be wise to upgrade to a faster Wired Router or just stick with the D-Link? The Netgear Switch is so darned fast, I'm afraid the D-Link Router is too slow to keep up.

Speed Kills - and I am more than ready to die!
