I have a 100mb FIBRE connection. I just recently bought an Archer C9 Gigabit Router, which is sitting on the far end of my house in the study. My consoles are sitting in my TV room. I have a 20m-30m CAT5 cable running to a 10/100 switch in the TV room and the consoles hooked up to the switch.
Now, my question is, which of the 3 options below would give me the best possible gaming connection :
- Relocate the fibre to the TV room and hook up consoles directly to the C9 and do away with the switch
- Swap to a gigabit switch, but leave everything else the same
- Don’t change anything, as there will not be any performance improvement from above
Option 1 is the most expensive while option 3 is obviously free. Option 2 is somewhere in between.
Please let me know your thoughts.
