My two pence worth.....

1. I don't believe XP is flexible enough to do what you want.  I have always found Syncback to be an excellent backup tool - it will do what you want to and more.

2. A Gigabit switch is an unnecessary expense in my opinion.  None of your PC's (especially those connected wirelessly) will be able to transfer data anywhere near that fast.  Your router, unless it is a particularly poor one, should easily be able to handle the bandwidth usage so the occasional backup between a PC and the NAS wouldn't be a problem.  Why not try it first with the router only and see how you get on?
