I have asked this question elsewhere on the site but thought I would get a better response here.
I have a virgin router and plugged into that is my HP microserver, I then have an Ethernet cable running from the router to my acer revo that is behind my TV, my router is about 4 mtrs away from my TV and i can not move the router, my tv is currently set up over wifi and at Christmas my son is getting a ps4.
Yesterday I put a standard 10/100 switch behind my tv as I want the tv, acer revo and ps4 hard-wired, When i started to play a move to the tv from the revo (xbmc) the movie started to buffer a bit, it never used to when the revo was plugged in directly to the router but now it is plugged in via the switch it buffers.
my connection speed is
Would a gigabit switch be a better option?
