My workplace consists of 4 access unmanaged network switches from three different computer rooms connected to a router. The router contains three 100mbps ethernet ports and one Gigabit (GigE) port.
I'm wondering if it would increase overall network performance if I were to buy a layer 2/3 switch as a core switch and connect that to the GigE port to the router, than to connect the access switches directly to the router.
Also all computers and printers in these rooms should be in the same network...
Would it be worth the effort? Is there a better way?
