  1. My laptop and phone ran about 250-300 up/down, which is considerably faster than before. I'm assuming the more devices we have wired, the less bogged down the wifi will be?
  2. So i plugged my PC directly into the router on both the LAN and WAN ports getting similar results to what ive been having before. I then power cycled the router just to see if maybe all the plugging and unplugging was making it act weird and... I get over 900up/down plugged into either the routers LAN port or the ont for WAN
  3. FiOS G3100, apparently their latest and greatest unless they "accidentally" downgraded us. Heres the user manual link in case you're curious and have a better eye for detail: https://www.verizon.com/supportresources/content/dam/verizon/support/consumer/documents/internet/fios-router-user-guide.pdf
  4. now what I don't understand, I've been tinkering and can't get speeds past 140mbps and im the only one using internet right this moment, is why FiOS sends a router where in the manual it states that WAN only supports speeds up to 100mpbs yet instructs users who are paying for speeds greater than that to have that plugged in? I'm getting more questions than answers now
  5. well I went through the trouble of cutting and crimping my own Cat6 cables to needed lengths. The router states: up to 1000Mbps ethernet, supported LAN speeds up to 2500mbps over coax... and WAN up to 100mpbs... I think you just helped find the issue... I think my router has us connected through WAN when we don't need to be
  6. I have tried being wired directly into the router, over wifi, over wall outlet ethernet extenders, the results are almost always the same, give or take 10Mbps. Our house is large but it's not so large that devices are out of reach in each corner, everything still has relatively strong and stable connection over wifi.
  7. We don't have a modem, just the router (FiOS G3100, what they sent us), and whether it's 10 devices or two our internet speeds are still underwhelming compared to what we pay for. Should I still at least try a different router to see if it helps or is there something else I'm not looking at?
  8. As the title says, the basic Verizon Fios gigabit router we have just does not cut it for the amount of users we have online at once, and the devices at use. At one time we can have up to TEN seperate devices all using the internet, and it really bogs down connection speeds (not to mention we're already throttled by our ISP, surprise surprise). We do pay for gigabit but at most I can only get up to 100Mbps up/down. So, I need recommendations from not articles, and some better reasonings as to why because I'm a home networking noob who also wants to wire the house for modern day internet (and if you so wish, some tips on that please!!). Most devices we have run on the 2.4GHz WiFi frequency aside from phones and my sisters/my PC's. We live in a decently large size home and the routers location is the living room, main floor, smack dab in the middle of the home basically, open air. If by chance there are other things that I can do settings wise to mess around with the router, other setups I can try that are low budget/low-medium effort, before I try replacing, that would be fantastic to know and at least give a shot. I'm open to anything. If you need more info on what we're running, feel free to ask and I'll try my best to provide
  9. This thread primarily addresses my need for a new laptop. Currently I'm using an HP Spectre from maybe 2017(?), and it just did not last as long as I would have liked. With how many products there are from so many different companies on the market that all seem to offer the same basic things with a "unique" gimmick, I'm having a very hard time figuring out what laptop to upgrade to. Of course this will stay as a work laptop for things such as my schoolwork (college), so gaming is out of the question mostly to reduce temptation. The "dream" laptop of mine should be able to easily run and compile any code I have to write for school, low level and complex stuff, as well as run CAD software like fusion or inventor. I'm not looking for the BEST CAD experience, but a workable one that won't have me ripping my hair out like my current crash fest of a laptop. Platform isn't the biggest concern for me anymore. If this forum convinces me that a Macbook is gonna be best, a Macbook it is. My only concern with jumping platforms from Windows (which I've only ever used) to something like googles OS on a pixelbook (I have no knowledge on anything pixelbook) or MacOS is getting used to the new format and interface, as well as navigation through the computer itself, since I know Mac uses different commands and the terminal is different. Linux IS an option, but that's it whole own thing I need to learn and get into first. Ideally, I don't want to spend much more than 1200 if I can. With adequate reasoning I can push it a good amount but my pockets are only so thick. tl/dr; college engineering students needs a new laptop, anything goes.
  10. I thought as much, won't stop me from playing around with it though.
  11. I have no other way to summarize it in the title, so for more detail here's a more precise question: Can I use my two graphics cards each dedicated to its own monitor, yet still use SLI on my 'primary' monitor? I'm intending on purchasing a second monitor since I finally have the space, with my current rig having 2 GTX 1080Ti graphics cards in SLI. Both cards have multiple display ports and HDMI ports to use, my intent being to plug each monitor into its own card. If I were to do this, will the cards be able to function separately for specific tasks to be displayed on their respective monitors and operate in SLI for others being displayed on my main? If anyone needs more information or for me to try and reword this in a different way feel free to ask for it.
