Second, if you have any 64bit OSes make sure you download 32bit vista drivers since the boot disk is built on Vista 32bit. Copy them to your software folder under a subfolder called network drivers for each machine copy these to a USB key, burn a recovery CD, you will download the newest version from microsoft. Then test with the 32bit drivers, it took me a couple hours to reload my on pc with Win7 Pro 64bit.
im the only one that has 64-bit win 7 pro. so ill look into that. i think a 5 port would be good enough for me already since it'll only be for the server and another computer.

This is my setup

internet>>asus wl-520gu running tomato fw > port 1 pc>>port 2 mom's comp >> port 3 bro's comp.

so if i have that switch it would then be
internet>>asusl wl-520gu >> port 1 switch >> port 2 on switch for mom's pc >> port 3 on switch for server >> etc.

and what do you mean by speeding up the router? what are the possible ways of doing that?

--

also, yesterday i was playing around with the "jumbo frames" and i set both to 4KB MTU on both client and server
By speed up the router, I mean get a router that has gigabit ports for the internal network. It's easier just to put a switch in for your computers and plug everything back in. Then backups like that won't take so long, or transfers of files either. If you have an xbox or ps3 and want to stream, don't worry about putting that on gigabit, 100 mbit is fast enough to stream the movies, at least I've never had an issue. Besides, the xbox doesn't have gigabit, so it wouldn't do any good.

That switch would be more than enough it seems for your needs, but like a previous poster said, getting an 8 port wouldn't be horrible, so you can easily add more computers to the network with out worrying.

How many computers are on your network including the network? Make sure you have enough ports for ALL computers and an uplink back to the router.

i put together what my network looks like

maybe i should get two switches because the WHS will be in another room along with my mom's computer.

from the attached pic, if all goes well, it will be

Internet >> ASUS Router >> Port 1 used for Switch1 in room#1 (whs, comp#1) >> Port 2 used for switch2 in room#2 (my computer, bro's computer)

remaining ports on ASUS Router - 2
remaining ports on Switch #1 and Switch #2 combined - 6

will that work?

Or just 1 switch total, with all the cables meeting there......

and like someone earlier said, an 8 port switch would probably be the best in your case, room for more devices later if you have more.
