[Beowulf] ethernet switch, dhcp question

Im fairly new to beowulf clusters so please excuse the question if 
it is trivial.  Ive installed mpich on several computers and have 
run several programs but the performance seems a little slow.  All 
the computers in my lab are connected directly to the campus 
network.  Would I see an increase in performance if I instead had 
slaves connected through a switch in my room connected to a master 
computer using dhcp to assign ip's?
Thanks for any help,
