comment Routing my home traffic to another server instead of ISP's default routes
May seem a bit obvious, but can't you change ISP? Why give money to a company that can't get their stuff right? :-)

Gordon, great answer :-) . Thanks for the educational post. Server was on DHCP just for testing. Everything you said is correct :-).

comment Why do I have network speed differences between 2 similar computers
Yep, I agree, use a linux to test. Could be faulty wiring, will cause dropped (damaged) packets, which cause retransmissions. XP has some horribly written network drivers. Are both ports operating at the same speed? Have you verified that on the switch? Does the switch port parameters match the OS configured port parameters? Speed/duplex mismatch? Sometime autoconfiguring network cards, don't autoconfigure very well, leaving the port in a degraded state.

comment Just one client bound to address and port: does it make a difference broadcast versus unicast in terms of overhead?
if you really have to reinvent the wheel, multicasts might be what your looking for. Most switches treat multicasts well, and should only copy them to stations that have interesting in that traffic. However most switch are dum and will treat multicasts as broadcasts.

comment Mac Server bizzare routing table
I see some anonymous coward has marked this down already. There should be no reason why my default route is pointing to interface. Server is on DHCP just as it's in test mode. Bizzare is the word.
