  1. Speedtest.net isnt a well recommended way of getting accurate speeds of a network. Even ISP companies dont recommend it. Your routers status should give you an speed exactly on what the exchange line is giving. Search cnet's website for a speedtest basically called "Network Speedtest" This gives you the same results as the router. Speedtest.net gives you the speed of what the exchange side says NOT what it gives at the home user end.
  2. Um, you would need to open command prompt to get the ip address assigned to your pc before just entering in some ip address to the network settings. Seriously, how do you not recommend this before hand ? Should I assign my pc a class c ip address when I know my router assigns a class a address ? NO ! >_< !!
  3. Cable modem with 4 gigabit lan ports. Get an combo with AC or non AC wireless. AC means you get 5Ghz and the bandwidth is higher so you get no noise from 2.4Ghz, well some noise but not as much as 2.4Ghz. Something dlink or netgear are cheap and good.
  4. Sonic Wall does great at firewalls and or use software based like Windows Firewall. If you have a spare old pc, then go linux or BSB firewalls.
  5. I have been with a few ISP, well I have delt with a few. I have stuck with iinet and no matter what I havent had any issues with their line speeds. Yes ADSL2+ but shit, I dont do as much downloading as I want to.
  6. Its great your looking for help, but help cant proceed without more information. What BSOD error codes you getitng What where you doing to get the BSOD My option firstly is check your drivers then check the BSOD logs to get error codes.
  7. Did you use the raid driver to detect the drives when doing the Windows install ? Often this is the cause
  8. Best option is too move your connection to an business line. Home users dont need upload as much as business's. Think about, they have servers an shit that need to upload a bucket tonne. Your home computer aint doing that but just downloading torrents. So Upload isnt what your home bundle gives you.
  9. Wifi has a range like ethernet, but more like 20 meters. Unfortunatly for WIfi you have interference more than wired due to a lot of electronic devices broadcasting on different frequencies. This is why "channels" are handy, too get away from interference. This doesnt help when your neighbor is on the same range !! Edit : Also yeah I know that differnt wifi signal wavelengths reach certain distances, but homes are about 20 meters. I have set up an Wifi device that has an max distance of 3 Kms.
  10. Man your complaining with those speeds. Have you tried using Australian internet ? I am lucky to reach 1MBps download on ADSL2+
  11. I used to use Norton Internet Security (NIS), was great. I could tweak it, it didnt slow my system down and it had an great interface. BUT I have had to rebuild my computer a few times due to updates from NIS. YES REBUILD. Their one update killed my system, everytime. So I moved to BIS (Bitdefender Internet Security) I can tweak this and it even has its own linux based repair boot up image. Lot of money for this software but it is actually worth it. AVG, ESET, Kaspersky, AVAST, Mcafee, Trend Micro, F-Secure and Norton I have tried and never liked them. None can do what I want from network security like Bitdefender does (Also no start up lag) I also used to use Comodo Free Firewall, till the interface changed !!. Has to be simple and pretty too be in my books :-p
  12. Meanwhile google has no answers....... :-p Yeah, hell I have been doing networking for years and I get kids way younger than me tell me I am wrong. But the 5 port TP-LINK needs to be binned, because its TP-LINK. Go get a suited branded switch that noes how to handle switching and routing protocols.
  13. Use this if it is too complicated http://www.checkyourmath.com/convert/data_rates/per_second/megabits_kilobytes_per_second.php
  14. First thing is check your modem, it tells you the exact speed you are getting normally in Kbps. I never rely on speedtest Ookla as it is always a false positive, even many ISP's dont rely on it!
  15. Dont worry my half degree I studied for doesnt count in the world of IT funny enough. The stuff they teach you is fine to understand in an IT company but when doing the work, an IT company teaches you more.
