The LAN ports being cat5 communicate with each other at 1 Gig, yes
Correct. It's like a Gigabit switch/hub on the LAN side
But if the WAN is any variant of Wireless, or DSL its must be limited to 11, 25, 30, 105 MB depending on what flavour of wireless or dsl be it
This Netgear router has no WiFi built in...I use an AP for that. I have FTTH in Japan with 200Mbps service. I can only use 25Mbps of that connection because of the bottleneck within this Netgear router. For a little bit more my ISP now offers a 1Gbps connection as well. I need a router that can handle WAN to LAN connections of 1Gbps or thereabouts.
