Built-in switch vs standalone switch

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am currently using a 1Gbps internet connection at home. Yes, 1 Gbps. On average result on speedtest is about 700+Mbps. My room are all hooked up using Cat6a Ethernet cable. What really concern me is not the speed I am getting but the latency which affect the responsiveness of my internet activity. With the standalone switch I tend to feel that it is much responsive as compared to the switch built in the router. Is it me that bias towards Cisco or I am too over particular about the latency?

Standalone Switch: Cisco SG90D-08 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch

Built-In Switch: ASUS RT-AC68U (AP Mode)

I need the AP just to connect to my Nexus 5. Only 1 device is connected through wireless on RT-AC68U.

The following are the two configuration

A) Internet > RT-N15U > SG90D-08 > LAPTOP, RT-AC68U & DS214

B) Internet > RT-N15U > RT-AC68U > LAPTOP & DS214

My laptop are connected to DS214 using a normal network drive and iSCSI LUN.

What specific tests have you done to isolate this behavior? An integrated switch is really the same thing as a standalone one, the one integrated in a router has an internal switchport interface to tie the other components together.
