    I have about 300 computers on my network and want to isolate a department. That department is generating to much traffic. I don't know if I should use a bridge,Ethernet switch or create a workgroup for them. I still need the deparment to be on the same network.

    Thank You,

    A workgroup won't really help with router traffic. It's just a logical arrangement for the computers.

    I don't honestly know enough to say whether a bridge would be better, but I would think a switch would be more cost effective.

    Hopefully someone with a bit more knowledge about this will reply soon.
