Your router appears to have 4 Gigabit LAN ports so it's not really slowing down your new Gigabit switch at all.
True. But the WAN port is only 100 Mbs., which means you're probably lucky to get half that. Am I right or wrong that the WAN port is the so-called weak link - especially if all 3 computers are on the internet and/or downloading?
I'm not sure why it's listed like that but I had this same router and it was running at Gb speeds but I like the DIR-655 much better, has all Gb port. It also had the same ISP speeds as the 655 so I'm not sure that one slower port matters much unless you have fiber optic ISP or something very fast.
And I like wireless because it's only as good as you make it and most people DO NOT know how to make it fast and reliable, but I do.
