Will 1000mbps lan card on server help?

Apologies in advance if this question has been asked before.

I presently have an ubuntu home server that also serves as an the internet gateway.

Every connected device presently is rated at 10/100, and does pretty much everything through the server, be it large amounts of reading/writing data, internet access, media streaming.

Would my network benefit from having a 1000mbps card installed on the server, assuming that 1) I also upgrade the router to handle that speed, and 2) all other devices kept at 10/100.

I'm not too concerned about WAN speed, just looking to reduce bottlenecks within the LAN. Thanks.

  1. Your network speed will run at the maximum speed of any device in the path between the two endpoints, whether that is the machine NIC, cables, switches, routers.
