Ok I purchased a new 5 port switch and figuired it wouldnt slow the internet down since the cat5 is faster than my internet would ever be. But when i run speed tests at the same time the results are almost half they are when i run one while not messing with the other computer. Is this to be expected when using a switch?

TYIA for you comments
