Hi Guys, many thanks for the responses, very much appreciated.
My router is a Netgear WNR2000 Wireless N Router, do you know if that is a Gigabit or a 10/100?
What is the difference? The Gigabit is faster i assume?
Unfortunately your router doesn't support gigabit (Standards
- Five (5) 10/100 [1 WAN and 4 LAN] Ethernet ports with auto-sensing technology
), but having a gigabit switch, with your devices connected through it would give you gigabit transfer speeds on your network just through the switch (by-passing the router). That's if you need gigabit speeds to begin with, which it looks like you wouldn't as you're just after switching a single cable on your current network for your PS3. You can pick up a 100Mb switch for even cheaper! But the choice is yours...
And to answer your question, yes gigabit (1000Mb/s) is faster than 100Mb/s
