This will NOT make your Internet faster

meanwhile my isp just recently was "upgraded to 100mb" speeds for everyone.

We’re still stuck on 30 ?‍♂️

 

the things that’s frustrating is there’s a fiber optic box about 10ft from my house, but they can’t bring a fucking over for whatever dumbass reason

Speak for yourself, there's an ISP in my area that will do residential fiber up to 5 gigabit.

 

Yes it's a few hundred a month, but my point stands.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

well yeah it's not like my isp can actually prove its 100mb feels more like 30 so don't worry you aren't missing out

you missed an idea. SPF+ to RJ45 do exist and are around 50$ for one.

you also missed a point. Many new high end wifi devices will take 2.5gb to feed them giving you more bandwidth over wifi transfers.

there also some weird but beginning to launch switches like the Netgear ms510tx, dual 10gb, 5gb and 2.5gb with 4 gig

Rather than buy the expensive switch, Can you run a Crossover Cable between two machines?

Basically
Server with 2 network cards
Card 1 = 1Gbps connected to router with internet
Card 2 = 2.5Gbps connected via crossover cable to Workstation Card 2

Workstation with 2 network cards
Card 1 = 1Gbps connected to router with internet
Card 2 = 2.5Gbps connected via crossover cable to Server Card 2

You can run a regular ethernet cable between two network cards that are rated 1 gbps or higher. The standards require that any 1gbps (or better) card support auto pair detection, so no matter if the cable is "crossover" or regular ethernet cable, two network cards should be able to exchange data directly, without network switch between them.

100 mbps ethernet cards (and ancient 10mbps) require specially wired ethernet cable (crossover cable).

 

So yeah, you could buy 2 cards and just have a cable between them.

Rather than paying 30-50$ for such a card, it would make more sense to go optical... single 10g cards are as low as 20-30$ and dual 10g cards are 60$ or less... see my post above.

A DAC cable can cost as low as 10-15$ or you can get transceivers and fiber cable separately (around 10-15$ per transceiver and less than 1$ per meter of fiber cable with connectors preinstalled)

 

There's QSFP+ (40gbps) ethernet cards for as low as 100$, here's an example. Here's a QSFP+ (40gbps) cable for 80$, or you can get a 40g to 4 x 10g cable with the card for 45$...

There was a Techquicke about how 2.5 gbps would make your internet faster about two days ago: 

And, awesome is not spelled "awersome".

I made the exact same argument 8 years ago when reviewing my first NAS box - any time you introduce "file sharing" to a network it will cripple your speeds, and it becomes even more evident when doing things over wireless.

 

That said I am still on gigabit and wireless-AC right now. I can comfortably stream 1080p MKV and do a 100+ GB backup job overnight no problem. But I wouldn't bother trying to move around an entire terabyte - save for USB 3.0 external drives and on-board sata drives for that.

 

Likewise I don't stream or do heavy downloads, so my measly DSL-grade internet connection is still good enough - I have no bottleneck to really point the finger at.

 

Also, I am just a single user. When you are talking about a family of FOUR sharing that gigabit cable and trying to move files around at the same time the shit will hit the fan in a spectacular fashion. I doubt even 2.5G will help at that point. One workaround is to add multiple switches and create subnets for each user.

I get free cell phone and texting through my provider because I have the home internet. 4G costs extra. If I'm good I pay less than 100 bucks a month and my DL speed is over 300 mega bits per second. Mega bit translated to mega byte is 12 to 1. So my actual DL speed is only 25 mega bytes. Upload sucks. only 12 mega bit.

None of my machines have USB-C...but I do see some USB3 with A connectors to 2.5Gbps on Amazon....I know A vs C is mainly a physical connection standard, rather than the signals...but IS there a difference between USB3 with C and with A? Would the adapters deliver the speeds?

So if the switch is still too expensive, couldn't you use a cheap motherboard with onboard 2.5, toss in a few of those 2.5 pcie cards and a cheap cpu, and make a homebrew switch + nas for ~$300 or less?

Looks like they were referring to a future video, which is now out. https://youtu.be/FAy9N1vX76o

This card is even cheaper than the TrendNet and is also 2.5 gb pcie, I wonder if is any good:

Yeah but Linus didnt said at all the model of the switch that he uses so if anyone knows which model is reply to me.

So why not to go at 10gbit sfp+ solution at all... dont get it
