We have a network of 4 computers using a switch and one broadband connection of 1mbps. I wanted to know a few things.
1. Does this mean each of us gets 1mb every second, or does each of us get 1mb for 1/4 second(since my understanding is that access to the bandwidth is "switched" among the four comps very fast.
2.Does it matter if we are all downloaading movies or playing online games. I mean, does the downloading by one user affect the speed of the other users in my house?
3. If a computer is connected to the switch but is not accessing the internet, does it mean when it is his turn, the bandwidth is wasted?
Thanks, and I would really appreciate a detailed yet clear and easy to understand answer. I will not hesitate to increase the points if I find the answer given worthy of it.
Thanks in advance.
