Thanks for the good info, pparks and H2S04. Tried to rep you both but my past reps to you are interfering. Apparently I need to spread the love somewhere else first...

check it out, any problems occur if you get a desktop gigabit ethernet card that is a DLINK and your router is a LINKSYS?

gigabit ethernet speed questions, do you get 3/4 or 1/2 or full speeds
Is a gigabit connection a pure connection at a gigabit OR does the connection adjust speeds lower or higher or what? If you look into the connection data and see no errors and your connected at a gigabit rating does this mean that is a real gigabit or has it negotiated some other speed rating.
