What's my bottleneck? ISP, Modem, wireless router or wireless adapter? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
How many neighboring access points are around you? This would usually determine your framing window/backoff timer for throughput as only one client can talk at a time on a particular frequency.

If there are a bunch it may adversely affect your bandwidth or reliability. I would suggest getting a dual band router and utilizing the UNII 5 GHz spectrum, though, as there are many more non-overlapping channels to choose from and not as many neighboring client devices would be in that spectrum as opposed to the standard ISM one at 2.4 GHz

There are 8 other networks detected, but all have 1 bar of strength/reception.
My router is in the next room, I have full strength

Streamed NHL again and it's nearly unwatchable, but youtube 1080p videos are ok

Could it be my router?

Another way to check your internet connection is with a video game. I play Quake Live (free to play @ quakelive.com), and what I do is get in game and enable /cg_drawlagometer 2 in the console, which will display a graph on the screen that shows how good your internet connection is.

I was playing quake just as you recommended and everything seemed fine, no lagging. I used the lagometer as well, I was 78-80 the whole time (not sure what this means though)
