    Dumb question on virtual pc network speeds


    My newest computer has a gigabit Ethernet card, but I'm using an old
    Linksys Fast Ethernet router/switch on my home network. This isn't
    really a problem because ONLY the newest computer has a gigabit
    Ethernet card, everything else but the oldest computer have 10/100
    cards.
    However, I have a question about using the virtual network with
    virtual PC. If I send traffic from one virtual machine to another or
    to the host machine, will I get gigabit Ethernet speeds or does it
    actually go through the switch and is thus limited to fast Ethernet?

    Obviously if I try to access another machine on the LAN or the
    internet it goes through the switch, but what about virtual machine to
    virtual machine?

    If you check the hardware inside the virtual PC, does it happen to say it's
    a 10/100 card?

    What speeds did you get when you tested it?
