  1. Hi there. I have wifi that advertises speeds of up to 45 Mbps from At&t. When I'm in my room, I get speeds of around 8-12 Mbps on my laptop (although it can drop to around 2-4 depending on when I test it, it's pretty inconsistent) and when plugged directly into the router, I get speeds of around 22-25 Mbps. What would be my best option for getting the most out of my wifi? I don't expect to be getting the full 45 Mbps, but even a boost from my current speed would be nice. I have a friend who recently got the Linksys Velop Dual-Band Mesh wifi and he says it's helped speed up his wifi tremend
  2. I currently have a 29" ultrawide monitor, as well as a 24" 1920x1080p monitor. I mainly use the 24" for games such as CSGO, as it has a refresh rate of 144 hz, and the ultrawide for games such as Fallout 4 and GTA, as the monitor has a much better image. I currently have both just sitting on my desk, but I will normally bring my 24" monitor in front of the ultrawide (and vise versa) when I am playing games on that monitor. Are there any monitor stands that would allow me to move both monitors around without having to pick them up every time I want to move them? Like, with moving arms or someth
  3. It is "up to". However, their lower package offers speeds up to 25 Mbps, so I find it odd that I don't even get that with the faster package And I'll try that
  4. Wifi. The computer I mainly use is upstairs and doesn't have access to any possible ethernet ports
  5. So, I get my internet from AT&T, and, according to their website, the internet package I have purchased offers download speeds of up to 45 Mbps. However, whenever I run an online speed test, regardless of the device I use or distance from the router, I can only get speeds from around 17-20 Mbps. Is there anything I could do, such as purchasing a new router (I use the one from AT&T that came with the internet) that would help to increase download speeds? Thanks
  6. I'm stuck deciding between the Jaybird X2s and Freedom. I'm leaning more toward the freedom, but from some of the reviews I've read, the battery on one side of the cable instead of in the earbuds themselves and the battery clip are big negatives for them. However, I don't plan on doing anything other than walking with the earbuds on or listen to anything for more than 4 hours, so I'm not sure those are dealbreakers for me. Anyone have any suggestions?
  7. The 12 mbps drops down to 10 mbps on my desktop though
  8. It's lowercase. And our current internet plan is 18 mbps, but we might up it to 45 mbps. I took a speed test and got 11.83 mbps download speed and 1.41 mbps upload speed on my laptop. I've always related my mbps to how much data was downloaded on steam.
  9. Megabytes, I would assume. It says up to 6 mbps on the AT&T website, and my download speed on steam is normally 1-2 megabytes per second, as in 1000 per gigabyte
  10. I believe its 6mbps. I know I wont be getting over 100, but a small boost would be appreciated
  11. The internet in my house is ok, usually between 1-2mbps. But whenever someone else in the house does something like steam video, I can barely get half a mb, making it impossible to play games like Counter Strike with my 500 ping. However, on the YouTube channel Unbox Therapy, there's a video where the third party router used increased his wireless speed from around 5mbps to over 100. I'm currently using the one that came with the internet from AT&T and want to know if getting a new router like the one in the video could help to increase my wifi speed. I know that wired internet is the way
  12. I'm looking for a new monitor, mainly for playing Counter Strike. I currently have an LG 29um67, but I have friends that have 144hz monitors and they (as well as almost everyone on the internet) says that the much higher refresh rate is a must for fps games like CS. So I've been looking for a 144hz monitor that is a little more on the cheap side. So far, I've come across the ASUS MG248Q and the BenQ XL2411Z, but I want to know if anyone knows of any other monitors, or if one of these is the best. I'm looking for one that is 24" and has good color accuracy (I know they aren't ips panels, but so

I'm not a lefty, but I use a Razer Mouse.
  14. So I recently got a Deathadder to replace my old Roccat Kone Pure, and although most of the features and programs are the same, there was this function on my old Roccat mouse (it is called easy shift or something) where I could press down on one of the side buttons of my mouse and all of the other buttons would be remapped to different functions for as long as you were pressing the "easy shift" button. For example, I could hold down the "easy shift" button, then use the mouse wheel to turn the volume of my computer up and down. I want to know if there's a program or some way I could do this in
  15. Are you looking for a regular mouse, or are you looking for a gaming mouse?
  16. Why don't you want a Razer Blade? It seems like it would fit what you want quite well
  17. So yesterday, this weird loading icon or something shows up in the bottom right corner of my monitor. But I'm not sure what it is from, or if there is a way to get rid of it, as there is no way to click on it. My antivirus just expired and I thought that is what it was, but I uninstalled the program and it still is here. I just want to know if anyone recognizes the icon or knows how I can get rid of it. Edit: The screenshot I took does not display the icon for some reason, so I took a picture with my phone.
  18. Ok, I must have been used to seeing something like a 7Zip icon or something. Thank you
  19. I recently had to reset my PC, and now all my folder icons look like this. I'm sure there's some simple customization option I'm missing, if anyone could lead me to it.

  21. I don't get any type of error message. It says something like this was unable to be done, or something, then asks me to restart my pc

  23. That's what I did. I got some type of error message, saying I couldn't do it. Tried it two times
