Network question

Hello

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?

Hello,

Installing the new Router shouldnt make a difference on your internal network providing that your not using the routers built in switch to connect other PCs. All PC's want to be connected to your Gigabit swicth as well as the router.

Even if you install a gigabit router you are limited by the speed of your ISP's network which is very unlikely to be gigabit.

Thank you,exactly what i was looking for :-)..I donīt care about my isp network speed,as long as my internal runs gigabit speeds (30-40MB/s) i am happy.
My internet connection is a 20/2 mbit,so the isp hardware fast ethernet is fine,all other pcīs and media players are connected to the switch only,so they should run gigabit internal,and 10/100 on connect to internet
