    I've got a 10/100 wireless router, and a planning on getting a gigabit unmanaged switch connected to one of the router's ports. To the gigabit switch, I will have 2 PC's each with gigabit NIC's.

    Will the 2 PC's connected via the switch have full gigabit transfer speed, or does the traffic need to go through the 10/100 router, introducing a bottleneck?

    They will get full gigabit connectivity, the only time you will traverse the router is when you want to be getting out to the internet.

    Perfect! I had assumed this was the case, but my understanding of network topologies is a bit rusty.
