I have a gigabit router/switch, and two gigabit switches; one in the office/main location where the router is, and one out where the home theater and xbox equipment is.
My intention was to make sure I have the fastest connection from switch 1 in the office/main location to switch 2 where the home theater/xbox equipment is located.
I know the bottle neck is where the internet/cable modem is and the 10/100 NIC in the xbox, but the in between should be faster than the current A wireless network, in theory?
The home theater equipment will all be connected to this gigabit switch, which is talking to another gigabit switch which will be connected to the cable modem. The router will be connected to that same switch 1, but I won't be feeding my other lines from the wireless router/switch, rather the gigabit switch which has the internet/modem connected.
If that is doable, I'm not a network expert so I don't know, just trying to maximize my equipment and connections and minimize the lag with xbox.
