My wireless router died on me yesterday (a d-link - about 18 months old) so I'm looking to replace. Current set up involves a d-link adsl modem feeding into the wireless router which in turn feeds two pc's( one a htpc) via wire and provides access to wireless centrino laptop. The two pc's have onboard gig lan which is not currently used. The laptop is b not g. I've been looking for a replacement for the router and there don't seem to be any out there yet that include gig lan. It may be overkill but I'd quite like to take advantage of this feature (curiosity value more than anything else at this stage) , especially as I envisage a large capacity media server being introduced into the equation in next 6 months. My question is: Is it possible to use a basic gig switch (eg. Netgear GS105) to allow the LAN to operate at gig speed yet still allow internet access/firewall/wireless facilities. Would a separate wireless router still funtion properly if simply connected to the switch rather than having the computers connected directly to it. Doesn't seem right somehow. Please enlighten me. Need to make purchase soon as wireless access via laptop is needed back quickly.
