Hey everyone,

Is it a waste of a port to plug a non-server with a 100Mb card into a  
10/100/1000 capable port on a switch?


10 port switch =
2 Gig ports
8 10/100 ports

1 Gig port for connection to main network
Would a computer with a 100Mb card see any benefit in being connected  
to the Gig port over one of the 100Mb ports?
