Does BToE impact PC lan performance?

Hi All


Can anyone tell me if setting up BToE and routing a PC's LAN connection through the phone negatively affect a PC's LAN performance on a 1gbit/s connection? I'm somewhat sceptical that this won't have an effect.


If so, if a 2nd NIC is added to the PC can the phone be directly connected to that connection? If so, is a standard or cross-over patch cable required? And, will static IP addresses need to be assigned or will the phone automatically use a 169.* address?


Many thanks
