you shouldnt notice a difference.. most if not all cable service is below 10Mbps anyhow.. on a switched network data is piped from destination to source at the switches rated speed.. other devices communicating on the switch shouldnt get any performance degradation.. on a hub the bandwidth is shared between all devices on the network.. with 2 PCs you shouldnt notice any performance drop while on the internet using a 10mbps hub. Transfering data between the two PCs will be noticably slower than on a 100Mbps switch though
