Hi all

 

Modem NF18ACV

 

Our fibre install is now all done, so i have a few questions

 

We have a few old switches in various rooms 10/100 mbps I think

 

Should i be updating these, I have a feeling these will possibly be a bottleneck, but then again i'm not sure if i have confused my bits, bytes and nibbles

 

and if I am updating just a small cheapy switch should be fine?

 

 

 

Also AP, newer devices work perfectly at the far end of the house but some of the old ones are a bit hopeless leading to a grumpy daughter, i do have an old airport extreme (2nd Gen) which could possibly do the job, or should i look at some time in the future getting an extender for that end of the house, I do have ethernet down there.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance
