  1. Ok. Then do consider putting UTP cable. A handy friend, neighbour, whatever... maybe use the outside (use UTP capable for that)
  2. To add: did you try a diff outlet, do you have a ground pin on your outlet? Don't use powerstrips...
  3. Did you install solar panels? Did you install different brands of PWLs? Maybe the neighbours are running the same PWLs? You have 3 standards atm: - AV - G.hn - AV2 Its better to use the uncommenly used G.hn atm especially in appartment blocks. They don't interfere. PWLs today have an issue though.. it takes a second for them to ramp up to full speed. That's something they need adress...
  4. If it's cheap, buy it. After 2-3 years it blows itself up due to heating issues. Technician here, I haven't seen those routers for a while at ppls homes. Not a good indicator..
  5. I hate to be the party-pooper, but if you're complaining about range an access point (AP) gives you, it's not going to be solved by the next gen RGB - had big antennae - router. All it emits is a norm of 100milliWatts (keeping it simple) wich is forced upon us by government standards all around the world. You need to look into mesh WiFi and it's not as simple as replacing the AT&T AP...
  6. Deep packet inspection is a network admin monitoring if the traffic is Netflix streaming or browser use or peer-to-peer, etc. You dont use routers in dorms because they mess up the DHCP range because students don't know what they're doing. 2 routers with a gateway will just down the whole network. An admin wouldn't use deep packet inspection, but Netscan or the arp cache to find a rogue DCHP server.
  7. You wont notice it. Wtf is with these armchair think-they-know-alls that litter this forum lately? Have you put an oscilloscope at the end of an ethernetcable of 100m and check the distortion? I have. Copper electrical wiring = not a problem, TL lights or heavy EM fields are.
  8. another name for it is "traffic shaping" but I don't know anything about it...
  9. I hate to be the dealbreaker here, but grounding coax is going to do jack. The HFC (network on the road) is better grounded then a property, so it's just ISP's who want to have all coax grounded, the GFCI / Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter is gonna switch off. Grounding here is done with the first device: the NIU, or in your case the old system of running a ground wire to the 'thingy-connector' (translation error404) If you have no fluctuations now, you'll get them back. But that could mean there's a faulty connector around the area you touched and wiggled just now. Did
  10. NEVER!!! So you run an ethernet to the place you need 1. an 'Access Point' for the devices on WiFi and 2. a passthrough for a PC? Amazon calls it: Wireless Access Point Multi Port.
  11. 6 techs and there's no escalation to a higher level? They've sent an in-home tech, what about the network? The US also has an SNR, it's not relevant for an in-home technician as it should be monitored by the Network, but if your friend, 3 roads away is having the same issues? I don't know how populated the area is? If he's on the same Node? How well do you know any of your neighbours to do a google ping when the hickups happen? btw, those T3 timeouts are: Modems and nodes are keeping up communications via some sort of a ping every 30seconds. If a modem is not heard
  12. 14 devices on a 25Mbit connection is going to be a bottleneck when everyone is using it... Another thing is the amount of WiFi antenna's serving those devices. Any modem/router/accesspoint usually has 2 to 5. I mean you've heard of dual or tripple band I'm sure. A Doorbell or the roomba may not be using much internet, but they're allways connected.. I do: #amountofdevices/2 = minimum of antenna's. So, 1 router + extra AP's that don't overlap the same signal to much, with a single SSID is the way to go atm. Next gen routers, "ac wave2" can serve more devices at once.
  13. You should check where the delay is. Do you have ipv6 connectivity for example. Google ipv6 test. All is fine? Open cmd and type: ping -t www.google.com What do you get?
  14. From what I understand is you're "tethering" with 2 devices: one device that creates the 'hotspot' and a second device that connects to it and both play the game? That should work!
  15. I read a lot of wrong facts through this post: Cat 5e: max 1 Gbps Cat 6: max 1 Gbps Cat 6a: max 10 Gbps Cat 7 : max 10 Gbps Netflix streams UHD @ 25 Mbps 4K streaming uses 45Mbps Length of a cat 5e is 100m but a switch can double it, quality and interference of the cable can also influence the max length, you can double it once with a switch. Tvs indeed have 100Mbps ports! All of them! But many have WiFi ac. There is no need for higher speeds then 45Mbps. Try a Playstaion 4 connection speedtest and see what crap o
  16. Would you have ipv4 and ipv6 on your pc? Win+R cmd ping -t www.google.com >> do you get replies in ipv6? ctrl+c ping -t www.google.com -4 >> do you get replies in ipv4? ctrl+c when you don't have issues on other devices, it has to be the pc ofcourse. If you don't get ipv6 -> What Anti-Virus are you running? If you don't get ipv4 -> Is you modem and the router in the same IP-range? 192.168.1.x ?
  17. I've had that same router, it worked great, but then started to overheat (just put your hand on it) and gave those same ping spikes. In my line of work I came across lots of the ASUS 66u/68u's, but for the past two years It's like they've all vanished... not a good sign imo, best router I've ever had.
  18. Can you run a signal test from the modem and post it on here? If not, call your ISP and ask them if the signals are fine. This is ADSL you're talking about right? A new modem won't solve an existing signal problem if the fault is on the outside.
  19. I don't get the question. You want to connect the router you've bought to the 5GHz of the dorm? That makes no sense... You ideally connect the router to an ethernet-port in your room if you have it. You can check the 5GHz band on a laptop with "inSSIDer" or on an android "WiFi analyzer" you will see the 5GHz networks there. On a side note, it's that time of year where every student brings a router to their dorm and messes up the DHCP(-ranges)!
  20. MB/s and Mb/s do you know the difference? If you have a 100Mb/s connection, but the speedtest only shows 92 Mb/s, it's because of speedtests only count actual data traffic, the other 8 Mb/s are data headers of the packets you transmit or receive. (data headers include: send message to your IP-adress... etc) THEY DONT COUNT THESE. (Info from specialists inside ISP) Edit... the man above me types faster.. but has the same outcome.
  21. googled the problem, some ppl suggesting to hold FN+PRT SC long enough untill the airplane mode switches off
  22. Open up CMD and type: netsh winsock reset reboot.
  23. It sounds like the RJ45 socket in the wall is busted? It has a tendancy to give a bad contact when someone kicks it under a desk or the cable gets pulled horizontally. Try the desktop again and wiggle the RJ45 connector a couple of times.
