Well, to be sure, I've been using it as a file server for about five or six months now. It doesn't slow down the whole network, it's only transfers to and from the machine that are slow.
This is just another computer on the network, that's all. No other network traffic goes through it.
What kind of switches, routers do you have, just curious as to what works well. I haven't set up a whole Gigabit network in a while, back in "the day" the routers and switches that were smart enough to pass any speed traffic without a performance hit cost a bundle.
