    And more thn 20 pcs are connected to this router, providing 16mbps speed to each pc which not enough.

    will it work ? will it provide me 1Gbps to each pc.

    whats the make and model of the Router and switches , if you have any ?

    how are the 20 PCs connected now - by wireless or cable

    how did you get from 8Mbps to 16Mbps ?

    To get gigabyte connectivity
    you would need a router with a gigabyte LAN connection , as well as the swtich and also all the PCs would need to have a gigabyte adapter
    BUT
    that will only be the internet speed between PC
    NOT the internet download speed - that will be determined by the speed your ISP (broadband) provider is giving you / you are paying for

    If you plan to continue to use wireless - you will not get gigabyte wireless connectivity

    router name which provided by ISP: Fast ptcl router
    16 pcs are connected via wireless and rest via cable.
    ISP(ptcl) told us its 8Mbps....

    with 8Mbps speed, when we put Gigabyte router and connected 16+ pcs.... will the internet speed to each pc improve ?

    The internet speed will vary between 8 and less than half a Mps depending on how many are actually using the internet at any moment. It is unlikely that a faster router is going to affect this by very much.
