Hi guys! I was looking to setup a gigabit network with internet sharing using the existing hardware I have. That is, a gigabit switch, a non-gigabit router and a single port modem. I'm afraid that once I chain everything together, I won't be getting gigabit network speeds due to the router. Can you advise?

any device capable of Gigabit networking connected to the switch will work at gigabit speed with each other only the connection to devices connected to the router will be none Gigabit

So basically set them up in this order?

Modem>router>switch>PCs

This should result result in the PCs being able to get gigabit network speed while still able able to access the internet?
