I'm running the same as you only with Cat6. I have plenty of Cat6 if anyone needs some. And a sh*t load of Cat5e.

I'm just over 2mbps. It SMOKES dial-up.

There are more shirts where yours came from, Grand Wizard Tripps ...

Re: The Linksys. You might be on to something. First generation SOHO routers were slow as molasses, newer ones are faster. People forget that routers have processors that inspect each packet ....

Peconic: I hear ya wires are always better for speed (at leaste now) however what is the point of a lap top if you are chained to the wall or desk? Also any time you want to run wires in this guys house be my guest. Wireless was a good alternative due to some very ornate wall treatments, like a room that is ALL mahogony. Place was built in 1885

My only point was pertaining to the Internet connection which is not enhanced even by the full duplex gigabit switched networks I design and run. Any wifi product with an 802.xx spec is faster than your broadband connection. File sharing, printing etc. is a whole other issue.

Yes, because the bottleneck is the line speed of the broadband connection, what's worse, the real bottleneck is the shared bandwidth of the broadband network's (cable, DSL) connection to the Internet "cloud."

No, because a lot can be going on even on a SOHO network, so some extra headroom can be a good thing. If Audiofn experiences a marked speedup, then he has done something right. Some WiFi connections can be incredibly slow in the real world ....

I run 4 machines at home, and they are connected with Gigabit Ethernet through a fast switch via good old Cat5. I don't believe in that newfangled stuff....

My Linksys is awesome. Might be a bit older but the only problem I have is now that I moved into a bigger house. The tow places I would work are out of range!

Is there a repeater or are the new ones more powerful?

A 802.11b or g will have a range indoors of about 100 - 150 feet. If you have 802.11a, that standard does not penetrate walls very well.
