Only internal traffic that needs to leave your local network is routed through your routers WAN port. Switches can run without any router at all for just local access.
gotcha, so, not like the old SCSI interface
so connect the router to the switch and connect all the devices with fast network connections to the switch only and I'm golden
still would be nice if this tech started making its way into routers, the standard has been out for damn near a year!
The 10 Gb standard has been around woefully long to have not made it into consumer gear at this point...
