I'd like to ask if using a network switch improves the bandwidth of computer?
I'm planning to get a new motherboard as my CPU is dead and the LAN port of that motherboard is 1000Mbps my router have 4 ports of 100Mbps. If I were to get a network switch with 5 port, all 4 ports to the router and one to my computer. Will bandwidth increase? Not internet bandwidth but home network bandwidth.
Replying would be a big help.
Edit : Will the IP binded be the same on the computer? Cause I remember IP given from the router is different for every connection.
