Model: TL-SG105-M2  
Hardware Version: V6
Firmware Version:

Hello:

 

I have an ADSL router with 10/100 ports.

 

To this router I connect three things:

 

1. a box running Devuan Linux with an on-board GbE LAN network adapter.

2. a netbook running Devuan Linux with an on-board 10/100 network adapter.

3. a 'My Book Live' single drive NAS running OpenWRT with an on-board GbE LAN network adapter.

 

As things stand, rsync between the box and the NAS takes ages as everything goes through the router.

 

I was thinking about getting a TL-SG105 Gb switch to plug in box+netbook+NAS and hook the switch to the router so I could ssh between the box and the NAS through the TL-SG105's much faster Gb link.

 

box         |    --> |

netbook  |    --> | Gb switch | ---> ADSL router --> web

NAS        |   -->  |

 

Am I correct in assuming a Gb link between the box and the NAS?

Or does everything still pass through the router?

 

Edit: I had to post this a second time because (for some reason) the original post did 'stick' .

 

Thanks in advance,

 

W.
