Hey everyone! I'm doing a project for school and i have a very basic question about network device effects on Data Transfer rates. in my project i am just supposed to connect a small SOHO style network with 2 different sub nets. i am using a Asus router (AC5300) with a Data transfer rate of 5334Mbps. i have 2 netagear switchs with DT rates of 10Gbps. my server is connected to one, as well as a few office devices. The other switch has all the home devices connected to it. both switches are connected to the router. the company wants a 10Gbps data transfer rate. if the home network requests data from the server, and it must pass through the router, is that gonna effect my Data transfer rate since the routers is much lower than the switches? and could i connect the switches to one another to avoid this problem ? i am using Cat 6 UTP cable.
