  1. I would agree, Cable Internet is vary distance sensitive so testing at random customer locations will give you randomly different latencies. Fiber Optic on the other hand will tend to have less deviation. Looking at the chart though they must have been all over the place for testing.
  2. PON is a special kind of fiber optic and often requires proprietary ONT's. However most of those ONT's do have a bridge mode which would turn off everything except the ethernet ports and allow you to plug in a router of your choosing. This however is a policy decision and may vary from carrier to carrier. I don't know of many carriers that will allow you to buy your own ONT, especially on PON.
  3. I am a Mikrotik Trainer and avid user. After getting over the learning curve, I am Cisco guy, I have found them to be very useful and versatile. For the cost it's hard to find a better device.
  4. Simple Queues are handled in software so anything that offloads to hardware (ie. Fasttrack) will skip any queues. If you go to the CLI and use /ip firewall then type export you can get all of the rules being used. Feel free to scrub that of personal data and post it I'll see what may be causing your issues. Maybe also do the same under /queue.
  5. @Insprill. Have you checked that both SFP's are using the same wavelength? I see some mentioned 1310nm above. Both Modules have to talk the same wavelength, if not they will not see each other. Think of it like trying to connect to 2.4Ghz Wifi with a 5Ghz radio. They will not work.
  6. I should also add, that speed has almost nothing to do with latency. You can have Gigabit ethernet and 200ms ping... and 30mb VDSL with 10ms ping so increasing speed may not improve gaming unless you have a saturation issue or a decrease in latency from something else such as a change in technology.
  7. If you have a ping of 15 and someone has 8, they will in no way have an advantage over you. Most online games are designed to handle much higher pings so really in most cases anything under 100ms will have roughly the same experience. But definitely under 50 would have no noticeable difference. Latency is a measurement of time that a packet takes to travel to the destination and then back. Anything under 100ms is good, anything under 50 is excellent. Latency is often misunderstood... numerous things can affect it, such as: 1. Distance - The father you are the lon
  8. Your i3 should be fine with those games. Although a bottleneck between CPU and GPU might exist. More than likely, like Alex said it's an interference issue.
  9. Can you expound more on the redirect? Is this an html redirect? What webserver are you using? Also if possible can you post the config, and scrub any private data?
  10. An 802.11ax router still operates on any of the options available on those bands. An 802.11ax Router will still allow an N or G device to connect at N or G speeds. The issue becomes that the slower devices take up more airtime causing less to be available to the AX devices. Since 802.11ax devices are still new no company would sale an 802.11ax only device. Final Note Wifi6 requires certain hardware to support the new features as such a device built w/o wifi6 will most likely not support wifi6 at any time.
  11. I've often seen Apple iOS Devices are bad when dealing with Upload.... they often are backing up photos and doing full backups. Otherwise glasswire is a great app to see if your PC's are doing something they shouldn't.
  12. Cisco Meraki is a decent solution with great hardware. Mist owned by Juniper now is also a decent solution with some nice BLE functionality as well. If you want to Use Meraki on the cheap often people are selling the AP's on Ebay pretty cheap you just need to buy Licensing.
  13. The closest I have been able to find is the old IBM token ring connector.
  14. A Pi with a simple Python Script should easily handle it... usually an API guide from the manufacturer of the VOIP solution would give details. If you don't feel comfortable doing it you could hirer a coder. It's simple enough it may be a good idea to learn as a little bit of coding is never a bad thing.
