I spent a few hours running a cat5 cable from my router to my computer. i used to be wireless. previously I ran spped test with the wireless setup and most were in the 2-3 meg range. Nice and fast. after I wired it up I ran test again. I got 3.5 -4.9 meg readings. Quite a bit of difference. I could tell that the latency was less with the wired.

this is was with Comcast. I thought they peaked out at 3meg.

What are you getting?

Keep in mind that I work for my ISP, and am one of their Network engineers, so none of our "customers" have connections like this.

Anyways, my main internet connection is wireless. I am using two motorolla 5.8 Ghz Wireless Backhaul antennas between the office and my house (about 2 miles). From the antenna it is a wired connection, where it comes into my house, and plugs into my wrap board and a power over enternet box.

From the wrap board is goes right into my router, a SonicWALL TZ-170 SP Wireless firewall/router, and from that is is a wired connection to all of the computers and xbox.

This is a speed test I ran and posted a while back -

I have a wireless ISP. It's the only broadband option where I live. The bandwidth varies dramatically. I'm actually paying for 1m/256k. At the moment, my bandwidth measures as follows:

Your download speed : 478813 bps, or 467 kbps.
A 58.4 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 414336 bps, or 404 kbps.

I'm 6 miles from the tower.

Ok, so I am a dummy, how do I know what my speed is? I am on Comcast.

Are these shitty speeds?
They seem very low compared to adair_usmc

Mine is that way because it is an unlimited bandwidth connection, right into my office. Like I said, I work for the local ISP, so I can set up my own equipment and adjust RADIUS profiles at will

15mb/sec

Verizon Fios Fiber Optic internet.

When a cable modem is just TOO DAMN SLOW!

Getting 1.5 Mbps of my Garanteed 3.0 Mbps

I'm switching to DSL soon. For the same price I get a garantee of 7 Mbps down and 1.5 Mbps up.

I just ran that 3 times. I went from 1.5M to 1.3M to 2.3M! I guess I will take the last one!
