after searching through osnn.net, i've found the reason i can't get my network speed up to 1000mbps - my router. it's a linksys befsr81 and is rated for 10/100 speeds only. i've scoured the net in search of a router deisgned for home use that can handle 1000mbps and i can only find switches. anyone seen a home/small office router that's 10/100/1000? 2nd question - why are they selling gigabit ethernet cards if no one can really use all the speed those nics can handle?
