Switch bottleneck?

I'm installing 2 ASA 5510s, one as the primary and one as the failover.  If I use a Netgear 10/100 Fast Ethernet 5 port switch in between the firewalls and the ISP's, will I be creating a bottleneck?

Switch bottleneck?

What is the thruput of the swittch? Also, as it is unmanaged switch, I would n't do that.

Thx

Switch bottleneck?

If your ports are all running at 100 Mbps (and your ISP connection is less than that) you shouldn't have any problem.

If you're running a port at 10 Mbps and your ISP speed is more than that - then, yes, your switch will limit your throughput.
