    Hi,

    Based on what I've read so far, this should be an easy one.

    How much of an overhead should you expect from any given router.

    For example, on a 100 Mbit/s switch and 2 laptops, using a piece of software called NetPerf, I get a throughput of 92.4 Mbit/s between the laptops.

    If I introduce a router and have a switch on either side for the laptops to hang off, the throughput drops to 85.72 Mbit/s between the laptops - a drop of 6.68 Mbit/s.

    Is this to be expected? If I introduce more routers along the path, will each one introduce a similar overhead?

    Thanks.
