Re: Correction

You could also just put a GigE card (wired) and move the desktop to 1000Mbps(GigE or gigabit ethernet), assuming router has GigE ports. I switched to a GigE network(in house) several years ago. In house transfers are now typically at 75MB/s, limiting factor being the hard drive speeds. This will jump to 95MB/s as I replace the older drives with the newer 100MB/s drives.

The router (WNR3500-1VCNAS) has gigabit WAN ports; however, the desktop iis based on the 845E chipset, and will be replaced at Christmas (motherboard swap; replacement mobo *has* gigE onboard). This desktop is *not* the admin box for the LAN, though, the admin box (also equipped with gigE) is less than two line feet from the router.

The point I am makling is that bandwidth within home LANs is not the issue it used to be.
