My friend has a router that is a Linksys Cisco E1500. I don't know how good of a router it is but I have found out it is only a 10/100 and not a Gig. That may be fine for the internet but it is not good enough for a network of 4 or more computers plus a NAS all working at the same time unless I am mistaken. I am looking for a new router for him that will be a gig. Unless I can just get the internet in and then run it into a gig switch. Will that bypass the router? I need a refresher on that. Thanks.
