    I still need to get a better router. My connection is rated at 1000 but I'm using an old 10/100 base router to hook up to my computer. I guess it's time for an upgrade! I really don't know what I'd be missing though. It's pretty fast I guess.

    It makes a huge difference, I recently upgraded my office from 1000, to 10g, and the night back up times were cut by 80%, I also can back up the "critical" (critical meaning those who come down and nag at me while there working late because it's "slow") while there in use. The ability to transfer or stream or remote access, is worth it, on paper it doesn't mean much but the one or 2 times a month the average user uses it is WAY worth it IMO.

    Yeah, but I was using a laptop for my last test, and I haven't checked in about 9 months, also I live in the suburbs of San Diego, and I'm 100% sure there is a download whore on my cul de sac. Because my speeds go up substantially when 11 PM comes around.

    Wow -you have a lot of hard drives in your downloads rig! I don't notice slowdown much here in Japan, unless I'm trying to get onto bandwidth heavy American sites during the morning (14 hour time difference so it's night there). I guess it's time to go shopping for a new router.

    Yeah I archive file as a hobby kinda (32 terabytes!) anime ect. yeah there's more but not going to say what) , also, I have the means, and I have a lot of friends that don't (those that do um . ., "grease the wheels" shall we say) and I host files/ allow them access to my FTP server, I also use it for my consulting business, allowing me to right off all the hardware, and my internet bill (and phone and HDTV gotta love bundles! as a business expense during tax season.

    A 10/100/1000 router from brands like Linksys/Cisco (I use them exclusively! you can't get any better) for about $60-$80 USD / 5,300 - 7,200 JPY.

    P.S. I adore Osaka, my favorite town in Japan! I eat my guts out every time I go there A( I drink far too much as well, as every time I go, I end up being taken out by reps from the companies I work for)! I've gotten my picture taken with the kui-daore clown 2 times (soo sad he's gone!)! Only been to 1 tigers game, people are so strict about cheering and talking during play. !_!'

    From my LAN rig down stairs (also my HTPC (in a HAF932 (in my rig stats) I use it for SSH tunneling so it's on 24/7 and other stuffs)

    The upload is almost dead on for whats the max (2.7mbps) for my connection, but the download is still less than half of what I have been known to pull ( about 15mbps).

    EDIT: slightly "better" [​IMG]
