Will linking 3 computers through switch on network be faster?

In one area, we have a server, and two computers that use that server extensively. Right now all the computers are on wi-fi.

I know if I ran the computers through a switch they could share data more quickly. The problem I have is there is no way to get a cat connection to this area.

If I got a range extender with switching ports built-in would it still speed this data up? Or would it be irrelevant because it still has to travel via wi-fi to the router and back?

  1. The fastest speed will be at the lowest speed in the chain. If you want to speed things up on wireless, make sure you are using the latest N specs, get the wireless access point as close to the computers as you can, and use a program like inSSIDer to test the connections and tweak them. Changing channels is generally the easiest thing to do. http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/
