I am hosting a LAN party in about 3 weeks and I am currently getting all the hardware ready.
About 20 people are invited and everyone is connected by LAN (it’s a LAN! party ) so I need a switch.
I do have a switch with 48 ports but it is only 100Mbit. Will this work or do I need to buy a 1Gbit switch?
We will be playing just local games as there is no usable external internet connection (there is a mobile network connection, just to log in steam and such)
There will be a local Minecraft server that is hostet on an additional pc so my calculation is 100Mbit connection to server divided by 20 players gives everyone a 5Mbit connection. Is this possible to play lag free? same goes for Garry’s mod?
I just want to hear some thoughts
the upgrade to Gbit would be around 50$ for something used here in Switzerland but i would rather safe the money for games…
