I have a doctor office networked with a windows 2003 SBS and 15  xp computers networked into it. I currently have a Best Buy D-link router with a 16 ports hooked off of it. Is there a better/faster/more efficient way for my networked to be setup or is this as good as some of the other more expensive routers i see advertized.

Buy a 16-port Switch! Plug in all your systems into that switch plus the one line need from the router to that switch.
