We have a Draytek router which is connected to our primary switch (Nortel) using the lAN port (which is also the port labelled 4). I noticed that there is a port reserved for gigabit Ethernet.
Should the LAN be plugged into the gigabit poet rather than the LAN port if I use the gigabit port on the Nortel switch?
Will this allow more bandwidth to the router? If so, i will have to remove one of our servers from the gigabit ports on the switch. Is it a sensible sacrifice?
