Full Duplex is when the computers can talk to each other at the same time. Simplex (or half duplex) is when they can only talk one after the other. Full Duplex is much faster.
Is that something in the router--or is it in the ethernet controller on the mobo? See--I am a n00b

Its Configured on a layer 3 device such as a Router or a Switch.

The router will be full duplex. The NIC's may not be. To check, goto the device manager in windows and open the properties window of the device, then goto advanced and then look for Link Speed\\Duplex. Set it to 100mbps Full Duplex (or as high as it goes). The router should run at 100mbps Full duplex anyway. What cables are you using btw?

I can see I will have to lern me sum netwerkin....layer 3 device lol. I actually have a keen interest in this stuff--so eventually I plan to get on top of it.

Since I seem to have an increasing collection of PCs--and I want to get proficient in 3D Max--and 3D Max comes in a commercial version that uses distributed computing and rendering otherwise takes forever--it all seemed to go together. Too bad wireless is so slow still--doesn't seem likely to get over 100 mbs anytime soon either.

Yeah doing it through a Wireless method would take ages ands not Very Efficient a wired Medium will be alot better plus alot faster on a gigabyte backbone...or Fibre mmm oh the Speed.

Layer 1 is hardware - Ie: the physical ports
Layer 2 is the MAC adress of the NIC connected
Layer 3 is the IP address of the connected Computer

I've got an interest in networking too, I dont know why though.

Yeah, Fibre Optics is great, its insanely fast when you have enough connections with the load distributed. It can be expensive though

Yep me too its the Only Decent Subject i actually like in College. And yes Fibre is VERY expensive but has near unlimited Distance. as you nead to use a Repeater for every 100 meters of CAT5 RJ45 cable you use lol.

This is all just to get me up to speed so I can get the hardware together that I need. The build is going to take a few months to mature as i add rigs to the case--but since you asked--none at this time--everything is wireless right now--for the furture build I have a Linksys 100mbs 4 port router. It looks like I should invest in mobos that have at least one onboard NIC. If running in Duplex can all the PCs just be linked in a chain from NIC to NIC? Or would those nodes (if that is the right term) not "know" to pass along the data....

For instance--do I need to have all the PCs radially linked to a router to talk to each other--or I can I run an ethernet cable into one NIC and out the other NIC on each PC and still have them all adressing the data to each other correctly even though connected serially?

You can do it, but its painfully slow. It would be better to invest in an 8 port gigabit switch and connect each computer to it and then the router. The computers will still be able to use the internet and have the speed they need.
