I need some clarification.
if my network adapter is running at 100mbps what does this actually mean?
if its running at 1GB speed I know this means I have a faster connection but to what exactly?
I ran a performance speed test that checks your download and upload speed and it hardly changed.
is it purely for the LAN? say moving files from a network share for example.
I know that its best to run it at 1gb if the NIC will take it, but considering its 10 times the 'connection' where should I see 10x the improvements?
The reason fpr the question is that I have 4 switches. 3 of them are 1gb compatible and 1 is cap'd at 100mbps.
if we replaced this with a 1GB switch would I see a noticeable improvement?
