Hi! So, i have setup my homenetwork like this: (using win xp on both) i have a switch SMC EZswitchGS8 with 1gbps and a smc router 7904BRA and 2 PCS! I linked each PC to the switch with cat5e cables and linked the switch to the router on a lan port from the router, using a cat5 and then i linked my ADSL modem to the router. So, i have 2 pcs each one with a pci card Surecom EP320G TX 32 bits with 1 gbps that i use to link to the switch. Now, i would like to know how to setup my network to get a 1 gigabit LAN ! Will i have to use ip to connect directly ??? I have this on Auto DHCP, i mean each pc has an auto IP from the Windows XP. May i use network connections from explorer ??? I am getting crazy!!!!! The switch as jumbo frames support as the surecom cards also have!!!! Thanks!!!
