Not necessarily. This depends on the age of the computer and how many software programs are running simultaneously. In order to take advantage of gigabit speeds, you'll need a computer or laptop that supports gigabit Ethernet (in geek terms, this means having a 1Gbps 1000BaseT network interface card). Most new computers and laptops already support gigabit speeds. If you're not sure whether your computer or laptop supports these speeds, consult your computer documentation and look for the following terms: 1000baseTx or 1000Mbps or 1Gbps or GigE.
