    everything is in the same location as yours so just to clarify its 10, 10, 100, 100.. full,half, full half. I just want to make sure I select the right one, and what is the difference between the full and half?

    Full-duplex is traffic in both directions at the same time (send and receive). The other is only one at a time

    Anyway, I don’t think you have 1000 mbps network card so select 100 full duplex if that is available.

    If you want to speed things up you need both: 1000Mbs switch/router AND network card

    But it will not speed up your internet, it will speed up data transfers between PC’s on a local network. I find this useful for making backups between PC’s via LAN
