Dual Gigabyte Network Question. - Page 2

I can tell you right up front the boost you are seeing is because your router isnt configured right, using both ports doesnt make your connection faster that is limited by your ISP. And you dont have a T1 you either have cable or most likely DSL. T1 is equal up and down speeds.

Earthlink is DSL as far as I know. And I didn't know that T1 was standard for a matched uplaod/download. I'm sure it's an option, but a requirment?

Quote:
T-1 carrier: A dedicated phone connection supporting data rates of 1.544Mbits per second. A T-1 line actually consists of 24 individual channels, each of which supports 64Kbits per second. Each 64Kbit/second channel can be configured to carry voice or data traffic. Most telephone companies allow you to buy just some of these individual channels, known as fractional T-1 access.

My old place had 4000 kbs download and a non-capped upload(usually got about 600-700kps up).



My new place I had to switch to Comcast, and while I get 6000 kbs down, I am capped at 354 kbs up.

Up speed is actually more important to me as some days I have my desktop and the laptop on the internet and maybe playing on Xbox Live. The Xbox is extremely selfish and picky about it's up speed to the network. I wonder if I'll be able to do that now.


That's wierd on the change with 2 cables vs 1 paul. It's like the DDR2 speed thing, it just doesn't make sense.......

A speed boost comes from misconfigured router? Not to bash you but can you please elaborate? I have been setting up networks for a long time and never seen a speed INCREASE from a goof in the setup.

Just for refrence most ISP will not bootleneck your connection unless you use it constantly at max bandwidth. Chater, my ISP, gives me a 4m cable but if I tweak it I can get up to 10m and a friend of mine in NY has a 15m connection that is unmetered.

As far as his connection... I am more likely to belive his dad

I have had 4 people at my house all playing BF2 off of my router and there was no lag at all... We pay for $65 a month, and Earthlink tells us it is T1.

Referring to your statement that you have T1 internet for $65 from Earthlink:
Earthlink's $65 high-speed plan is a cable setup. Not T1. Earthlink's business T1 setup (the cheapest T1/3 line) is $349 per/month. Plus, your T1 line is going to take days for them to set up. If Earthlink tells you that you have T1 for $65 a month, they telling you one giant lie, and I think every member of Overclock.net (and any other sensible man) will be switching to Earthlink T1.

Hmmm... good point. I think we have the 8 Mbps. I could have sworn my dad said we have T1... Well he doesn't know much about computers anyways, so the Earthlink guy could have said "It is just like T1." And my dad would have said, "we have T1."

A true, business T1 is more than just 1 line, hence the massive price. The speeds are not changed. Otherwise, any reasonable business would not pay $400 a month for it. If you look at many speed tests, they rate you against known speed ratings, and T1 has a set speed rating, it's a gaurunteed speed.

So a home user can have a connection at the same speed as a T1, and when someone tells me they have a T1, I know they mean speed, not a business pack.

I see. It is like saying you will have this speed, no matter how many computer you split it up through. Got ya!
