I will try running speedtests in various configs, but I may not go back to Gateway mode as even if I suffer a bit in speed I doubt that I will want this.

I will try the following with the same laptop:
  1. Connect directly to ethernet ports of Gateway - this should be like a direct connection to the internet with no router attached (I guess it isn't wise to do this for very long although I will still have the Windows Firewall enabled)
  2. Connect directly to LAN ports of my Asus RT-N66U router.
  3. Connect directly to port of 24 port switch.
  4. Connect over house ethernet wiring in my office.
It will be interesting to see if there is any variance.
