Do switches use the fastest route available between computers?

I have 4 Gigabit switches for my network and one 10/100 router. Can/should I hook each switch up to the router and then also plug each switch into each other switch to improve internet performance while still maintaining Gigabit on my LAN?

Bandwidth monitor?

I need software, OS X (including Darwin or XWindows) or Windows 2K, that can be set to automatically check the maximum download or upload speed to and from multiple machines outside my WAN at given time intervals by doing pre-set tasks and recording the total time the tasks take and the size of the total data transferred. I do not need software that shows me the current throughput of whatever random surfing or emailing I'm doing. [more inside]

Routers and Forwarding inside and outside the network.

Routers: This may seem rather silly to some folks, but I need a little help in figuring out what my network problem is. (I tried to google around, but i am not even sure what the term is that I should be searching for) The problem is, I am hosting my own web-server and MySQL DB for development purposes, and I have a domain name that points to it. When I am outside my own network I can hit my URL just fine. But when I inside my network, it always try to go to the routers configuration page. Any ideas as how to make sure the router is forwarding the ports correctly INSIDE my network?

Where to ask HW & Network Questions?

I am searching for a 'one stop shopping' website for hardware and network related questions. I am a computer consultant with almost twenty years experience, so I know my way around the basic issues and, given enough time, can usually dig up and/or figure out anything I'm not familiar with. But I am finding myself with less and less time to spend researching this stuff and would much prefer being able to ask a pro directly. [more inside]

Sharing wireless internet access wirelessly

My sister lives in a small town in NH that started offering free wireless access in the center of town. I'd like for her to be able to connect to the internet from her house, which is about .5 miles away from the antenna but with tall buildings (church steeples) in between. She has a desktop, her husband has a Centrino-equipped laptop, and I visit with a 802.11-able laptop. My brother-and-law and I are thinking of building a cantenna or the like and mounting it on the roof . But what do we attach the antenna to? All the routers/"access points" I've looked at so far assume a cable (ethernet) connection as input signal which is then output as wireless or ethernet or both. But we want to both receive and dispense wireless. I know there are "repeaters" that can do this but all the affordable ones I've studied only output using proprietary protocols, not 802.11(g), which would require buying proprietary equipment for all the computers in question. Any inexpensive solutions?

Ethernet on a PowerMac 5500

I recently got hold of a PowerMac 5500/2275 (the black one with the TV tuner), but the ethernet port has been upgraded, and is now a modem. While this is all very nice, I'd much prefer it to have LAN functionality. What, exactly, am I looking for on eBay to equip this Mac with a network card, and how difficult are they to install?

Adding to the network

An office has a single network drop which winds through the walls back to a switchbox in the server room. This office holds two occupants, both of whom would like access to the network. How would the occupants go about sharing this network drop? A "splitter" (is there such a thing?)? A router? Should one machine sharing the connection with the other? (Is more information needed?)

Need a Linux media server

I wish to rip DVDs to a Linux server and then watch them at my leisure on my TV via either a wired or wireless network. There appear to be countless devices that will stream videos (like this) but I haven't been able to tell which will play DVDs off a network (with menus and all) and which just stream plain-old-MPEGs. Has anyone got experience with a digital media gadget that will do this?
