I was just wondering if more switches and routers on a network can increase speed greatly (mainly for internet). My design is
IDU -> 8 portDlink switch -> Pix 501 -network
IDU -> 8 portDlink switch -> cisco 2600 series -> catalyst 2950 -network
i also have other switches (e.g 3com, intex) along the way. Does a mixture of different vendors equipment affect the perfomers of others? If i add more switches and routers and stick to Cisco products can/how can i increase spead?
