All depends on what you want, The four ports are switched ports.
However, the 10/100 switch is on the LAN side only! The WAN port is
10BaseT, since most broadband connections only run 1 to 1.5Mbps at
best. You'll get 100Mbps full-duplex transfer from
computer-to-computer only (if your NICs and drivers support it).
Computer-to-Internet speed will be limited by the speed of your
Internet connection, but the switch function will keep that slower
connection separate from the faster LAN connections.
