performance of gigabit switch embedded in router

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 5 port gigabit switch(unmanaged) and a wireless N access point using in my room. the switch is connected via a cat6 to the router(asus n15u) in the living room. I was planning to have wired and wireless connectivity in my room. However, come to think of power consumption, i am better off with a single gigabit router.

one router = 12v x 1a = 12w

one ap = 12v x 1a = 12w
one switch = 9v x 0.6a = 5.4w
total = 17.4w

my secondary concern is about the dedicated switch(unmanaged) vs embedded switch in the router. will there is a much different in performance? my internet broadband at home is about 200 down 300 up and I do local file transfer and streaming via the home network.

You shouldn't see a difference either way.

Power wise that would be equivalent to like $5 per year.
Switching capacity wise I would be surprised if you had enough traffic to saturate the fabric.
