Bottlenecks: powerline adapters, and desktop NICs.
Desktop NICs are often connected to the system via a low bandwidth
internal bus, so even though you can theorietically get 1Gbps on the
copper - the machine realistically gets under half the promised
bandwidth. If you have a server, it should be tied to the PCI-X bus
at a higher rate. Should...
So here is how you can test it! Trust but verify! :)

my powerline adapters are gigabit on both ends of the

with LAN switch), so:
- if my cable from adapter to PC is cat5e, do i still
get the max speed gigabit offers?
- what if cable from switch to its adapter is cat5e?
switch does have a gigabit port but i am just using
the rj45 port.

basically i am trying to determine which, if any,
cables i should upgrade to improve data speeds on the LAN.
educate me to your like/patience! googling it gives me
all kinds of mixed feedback so i remain confused.
