There is no crossfire technology. The changing of the wire's location
is an artifact, not a technology. It's still ethernet over cat5. Those
are two terms that you can google if you want to know more about the
technology.

Can't say. In theory, eliminating the router may speed things up. In
practice not so.

Mount it manually so as not to kill your already fragile fstab file.
