Open Discussion / Re: Election 2020
« Last post by Jake on January 22, 2021, 05:32:32 PM »
Ok so I don't know how to moderate very well but I think I eventually moved the two recent posts to the WTF America thread in the other board. This election is over and I get the feeling that there is some preference to talk politics in safe contact so I made that decision.

If there's anybody here who doesn't have access to the other board we should probably fix that.

good call. and perhaps we should lock this bad boy up

My internet is only 200Mbps (advertised) and I have an Orbi which does have the triband backhaul channel (wireless).  Works great for us.  The kids (again, 2 floors down), get 200+ Mbps down.

I have the Google Nest one but I'm not getting fast enough speeds now that I have gig fiber. Could be the Google one is just not impressive. I also don't have the ethernet backhaul.

Why not just get a mesh router?  My kids get almost the same speeds as me being hardwired 2 floors down (they are hardwired into the satellite).  Running cables is just a pain in the ass.

We have regular cat6 plenum. Nothing we have can really take advantage of anything else. Even cat6 is technically overkill but figure we'd be "future-proof."

LOL!
I dunno, my old 386 ran on a just a few hundred MB just fine. I did upgrade my Compaq to 20GB in 1999 for about $160.  That bad-boy could hold every thing i could ever want from napster or limewire.

What cable did you choose? I know I need plenum, but it seems like cat6 is the common version vs cat6e or 'a'.

I tried using a powerline setup but the speeds were not impressive in my house (probably the meh wiring). So I'm going to stop being lazy and run cables to each room.
