Times change, and we are adapting to now having gigabit internet service at a local charity. Since there is a gigabit uplink on the switch already in place (Netgear FSM726) I was wondering if the router (gigabit but few ports) could just be connected to the normally 10/100 switch on the gigabit uplink port?
No devices on that switch would be able to go faster than 100, but the aggregate could if the gigabit uplink was connected (through a firewall/router) to the modem.
Do I understand this correctly?
Presumably a device or another switch could be connected to the second uplink port on that same FSM726 switch. Is that correct?
